BJP condemns J&K CM’s ‘sympathies’

Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday criticised Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah over his remarks on the hanging of Afzal Guru and said that the chief minister was speaking the language of separatists.

'The BJP strongly condemns the Chief Minister's statements, he is speaking the language of separatists' said BJP spokesperson Prakash Javedkar, who added that Abdullah's comments in the aftermath of the execution of the Parliament attack convict seek to sympathise with terrorists.

'In his interviews to the media, Omar Abdullah has ended up sympathising with Afzal Guru describing him as a young man of 43 and forgetting the fact that six of the nine who were killed in the Parliament attack were younger than Afzal,' said Javedkar.

 The party also took exception to Abdullah's misrepresentation of the Supreme Court verdict in the Parliament attack case claiming that it depended on circumstantial evidence and death sentence was awarded to satisfy the collective conscience of the society. 'Abdullah forgets conveniently that the Supreme Court had said there was not even a shred of doubt about Afzal's complicity in hatching the conspiracy to attack Parliament and evidence showed that he had actively participated in its execution,' said Javedkar.

Omar Abdullah had slammed the execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and had said it would reinforce a sense of alienation and injustice among generation of youth in the Valley.
