In a shocker, senior Congress leader in Jammu and Kashmir Haji Sagheer Saeed Khan has given terrorism in the state the ultimate backing by announcing rewards and promising jobs to those 'suffering' after the deaths of 'innocent people' (referring to terrorists), and by promising to free those terror suspects who are in prison, if the Congress party comes to power.
Rewards, jobs and freedom for terrorists:
Speaking to reporters at a press briefing in Kashmir, Observer of Minority Department of AICC Haji Sagheer Saeed Khan attacked the BJP and declared a compensation worth Rs 1 Crore to the 'innocent' terror suspects who have become the targets of 'BJP's atrocities', adding that jailed terror suspects will also be freed.
"Kashmir, that once was heaven, is now surrounded with dead bodies. The atrocities that BJP is committing against the people here are resulting in the deaths of several innocent people. If Congress comes to power here, then we will offer 1 Crore Rupees and a job to those suffering in the aftermath. And the innocent people who have been killed and those who are in jail under terror charges will all be freed as well. Everyone will be freed and peace will prevail here."
'Will hang BJP leaders':
Later he went on to make a threat, announcing that BJP leaders who are behind the killings of innocent people in the state will be hanged to death.
"BJP leaders who have carried out these killings here, no matter how much powerful the leader is, a new law will be formed and those BJP leaders will be hanged to death. These BJP party workers will be hanged to death."
'Hindu Terror' angle:
Sagheer Saeed Khan said that the Indian security forces are forced to follow orders by BJP party that results in the killings of innocent people. He proceeded to raise the 'Hindu terror' angle over the recent Bulandshahr violence in which UP police inspector Subodh Kumar was killed.
You must have known that a soldier named Jeetu from 22 Rifle got so angry by Hindu terrorism prevailing here that he went and killed inspector Subodh Kumar. If the police would have been active in Bulandshahr, then who would have to know how many killings would have happened there, as the BJP had planned.
Meanwhile, a PTI report on December 8 had stated that the security forces have eliminated over 230 terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir this year so far.
A total of 232 terrorists have been killed so far this year, while 240 terrorists, including foreigners, are active in the Kashmir Valley, an official said.
Another official stated that there has been an improvement in the security scenario in the Kashmir Valley ever since the imposition of Governor's rule on June 19 when the BJP withdrew support to the Mehbooba Mufti-led government.
Update: MoS PMO Dr Jitendra Singh has demanded that Rahul Gandhi clarify his party's stand in the matter:
