The PDP president Mehbooba Mufti slammed the central government’s decision to ban the Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir.
She said that it can only be seen as another example of “muscular approach” of the central government.
She said that it is the approach of the central government with a political issue of the state.
“Democracy is a battle of ideas, crackdown followed by banning of Jammat Islami (JK) is condemnable, another example of high handedness and muscular approach of GOI to deal with political issue of J&k,” the former chief minister said in a tweet.
The central government banned the Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir for five years under anti-terror law on grounds that it was “in close touch” with militant outfits and is expected to “escalate secessionist movement” in the state.
