Hailing Pak minister’s sacking for ‘anti-Hindu remark’, Omar slams Modi

Srinagar, Mar 6 : Welcoming the sacking of a provincial minister in Pakistan for his anti-Hindu remarks, former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah asked ‘why similar bigotry in India was being ignored’.

“We like to compare ourselves with Pakistan so compare this fact as well,” Mr Abdullah, who is the Vice- President of National Conference (NC), said. He said in India a state Governor isn’t even reprimanded for his public call to boycott and ostracise all Kashmiri Muslims.

Mr Abdullah’s remark was in apparent referral to Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy, who last month supported demand for a boycott of “everything Kashmiri” following the Pulwama attack that left 40 CRPF jawans dead.

“In Pakistan a state minister is sacked for his remarks against Hindus. In India a state Governor isn’t even reprimanded for his public call to boycott & ostracise all Kashmiri Muslims. We like to compare ourselves with Pakistan so compare this fact as well,” Mr Abdullah wrote on micro-blogging site twitter. (UNI)
