Sympathisers of terrorists doing no good to nation: BJP leader Yudhvir Sethi  6 Days ago

Source:   Times Of India  

JAMMU: BJP state general secretary Yudhvir Sethi Friday said those sympathising with terrorists are doing no good to the nation, as he lauded security forces for eliminating two ultras including top Hizbul commander and former PhD student Manan Wani in north Kashmir's frontier district of Kupwara. He also termed as "misleading and against the very spirit of Kashmiriyat" former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti's remarks that Wani's death was "entirely our loss as we are losing young educated boys everyday".

Sethi said giving statements "glorifying" militants and describing their killing as a loss are nothing but akin to fanning militancy. "The sympathisers of such people (terrorists) are doing no good to the nation. Security forces have done a commendable job by eliminating terrorists."

Instead of "glorifying" such militants, Mehbooba should ask youths not to get misled by Pakistan only to be killed by the security forces, he said.

Sethi also dismissed her suggestion that all the political parties in the country should try to facilitate a solution through dialogue with all the stake holders including Pakistan to end "this bloodshed".

Reacting to Manan's killing Thursday, Mehbooba had tweeted, "Today a PhD scholar chose death over life & was killed in an encounter. His death is entirely our loss as we are losing young educated boys everyday."

"It is high time that all the political parties in the country realise the gravity of this situation and try to facilitate a solution through dialogue with all the stake holders including Pakistan to end this bloodshed," she had further said.

Sethi said everyone in the country knows about the situation in Kashmir and that is why they have thrown their weight behind the security forces as they eliminate militants and even the "white collar ultras".

Educated or uneducated militants like Burhan Wani and Manan will continue to meet their fate at the hands of security agencies, he added.

"Pakistan and militants backed by it have launched a proxy war against a mighty nation like India who has one of the best armies," Sethi said.

Instead of encouraging young boys to take the wrong path or sympathising with the ultras, Mehbooba Mufti as a mainstream politician should ask them to contribute to the nation's economy and help their families grow stronger, he said.

"She must ... have courage to call a spade a spade only then will the people, especially the youths of Kashmir, will not get misguided," Sethi said.

While many youths in Kashmir are engaging themselves in start-ups and having self-finances units or are studying in different parts of the country to make their future, youths like Manan are meeting their fate, he said.
