Mufti slams NIA raids against JeI
Srinagar: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday described the NIA raids against Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) in Jammu and Kashmir as a “self-goal” for the Centre, saying instead of fighting an ideology with a better idea, the government was crushing contrarian thought with an iron fist.
“NIA raids on Jamaat is emblematic of GOI (Government of India) waging a war against its so called ‘integral part’. Instead of fighting an ideology with a better idea it is crushing contrarian thought with an iron fist,” Mufti wrote on Twitter.
She said such “oppressive measures” may seem to work temporarily, but in the long run it will prove to be “counter-productive”.
“The gulf between J&K and rest of the country widens with every passing day. It is a self-goal,” she said.
