‘Afzal Guru should not have been brought up in JNU’ – Farooq Abdullah

Jammu, February 27: The dynamic politician who minces his words only selectively addressed the media persons in Jammu today. The former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir answered questions on various topics ranging from the supposed mishandling of the JNU issue by its Vice-Chancellor to the more recent rape of 10 women in Haryana.

He said that the Vice Chancellor of JNU should not have called in police inside the campus and that the matter could have been solved without the intervention of the police.

He also said that the introduction of the Afzal Guru matter within the campus was an unwelcome move and should not have happened. “These matters can be discussed without raising them in the open too,” he said.

When asked by the media persons to comment on P. Chidambaram’s statement over polarization happening in India on the scale of Babri Masjid’s time, Abdullah said, “The polarization would happen. It is not the fault of BJP or RSS alone. The Congress has been making statements only and not gathering the secular forces to control the issue. Polarization is not a one sided affair and both the sides are equally responsible.”

Curiously even in the following question on rape of 10 women in Haryana, Farooq Abdullah did not criticise BJP when a media person re-emphasized that Haryana is a BJP-led state.
