India can't keep J&K if Muslims viewed with suspicion: Farooq

SRINAGAR: Former Union Minister Farooq Abdullah today said India will not be able to keep Kashmir if the forces who see Muslims of the country with suspicion and pit the minority community against the majority are not reined in.

“A storm is brewing in India which is ringing alarm bells and, if we do not understand this, if we continue fighting Hindus with Muslims, then I am telling them from here that they (Centre) cannot keep Kashmir. This is the truth even if you do not like it,” Abdullah said addressing National Conference workers on the first death anniversary of the party’s former general secretary Sheikh Nazir.

Abdullah said Muslims were not the enemies of the country but were still seen with suspicion.

“Today, a Muslim is seen with suspicious eyes. Is a Muslim not Indian? Has he not sacrificed anything? Have you forgotten Brigadier Usman (the highest ranking officer of Indian Army killed in the Indo-Pakistan war of 1947)? He sacrificed his life for saving the country. (AGENCIES)
