“We aren’t Pakistani Muslims, or foreign Muslims, we are Indian Muslim. Try to understand our pain,” Abdullah said. “One Pakistan has already been created, how many more do you want to create.” Abdullah said that the government has bought the media as well and one can see that as “none of them writes anything against this government.” “Although” he said, “The day isn’t far when everybody will be standing together against them.” “You say I am not loyal, the truth is you are not a person with a heart,” he said.
“You have to free your nation from these people who are trying to divide us.” He also congratulated all the leaders present at the conference saying that all of them are working towards bringing the whole nation together. “The desire to make a sacrifice is in our hearts. Let us see what strength there is in the arms of our executioner,” Abdullah quoted the poem Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna written in Urdu by Bismil Azimabadi.
This is not the first time Farooq Abdullah has slammed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Earlier in July, he said, “They are only here to stay in power and loot the public of Jammu and Kashmir.” He has criticised Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s government saying that she has always secretly ‘backed Kashmiri separatists’. “She (Mehbooba) is hand-in-glove with the Hurriyat. Even you know that she always secretly backed the Kashmiri separatists. She used to consider Geelani her father,” he said. The conference ‘Sanjhi Virasat Bachao’ was conducted by Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) senior leader Sharad Yadav, on Thursday in Delhi.
