Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President and former chief minister Dr Farooq Abdullah on Friday said that Kashmiri people fear they have no place in India.
Addressing an event in New Delhi, Farooq said that New Delhi needs to wake up or else “India will fall apart”.
“There is the fear in Kashmiri mind. They need to be convinced, but, how do I do that, when I see people lynching people or when I see just because of your religion you are targeted,” Dr Farooq questioned?
He further added: “We need to wake up. If you can’t wake up there will be no India, it will fall apart.”
At another event in Delhi, he said the democracy of Mahatma Gandhi and Jawahar Lal Nehru doesn’t exist anymore.
“Politics is not bad, politicians can be bad. Many of us join politics for service and many of us join politics for making money. God doesn’t live in temples, mosques or gurudwaras, he lives in people and if you serve people you are serving God,” reports quoting him said.
