At a time when anti-terror operations have been ongoing in several parts of Jammu and Kashmir after a string of Pak-sponsored terrorist attacks, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has made a shocking communal statement.
Addressing a press conference, Owaisi, said the following:
"On TV channels, Muslims' nationalism is questioned; allegations are made against Kashmiris. Now 5 out of 7 who died are Kashmiri Muslims, of which one was a pregnant woman who was hit with a bullet. Now if five of seven who died were Kashmiri Muslims, then why is it not being spoken of... That those who have died are Kashmiri Muslims. Why is there silence in the country?"
Six Armymen were martyred in the JeM-attack on the Sunjuwan Military Base in Jammu. One civilian was also killed, while the pregnant woman who Owaisi was speaking about was saved after the desperate intervention of doctors at the Jammu military hospital, who not only saved her but also delivered her healthy baby girl 'Hope'. One civilian was also killed, while a CRPF jawan was martyred in another attack at Karan Nagar in Srinagar.
