Dissent has been ‘criminalized’ in India, says Mehbooba after ED questioning
Srinagar: The former chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti Thursday said that the dissent has been criminalized in the country.
“One who speaks against you (Government of India) is being either booked under seditious charges or being summoned by the investigative agencies,” Mehbooba said after nearly five-hour long questioning by Enforcement Department (ED) here in Srinagar with regard to the money laundering case
“I was questioned about my father’s property in Bijbehara, which we have sold out and was asked how you sold it and other related things. Second about the funds during her tenure as Chief Minister,” she said adding that she has nothing to hide
Mehbooba further stated that there will be no change in the party’s stance over the fight for the rights of Jammu and Kashmir people especially regarding the restoration of Article 370—(KNO)
