Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti hit out at news channels for linking Kartarpur to an alleged conspiracy for creation of Khalistan and asked why allowing people a pilgrimage to Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birth place would assume such undertones.
Taking to micro blogging social networking site twitter Mufti wrote, “It is quite amusing how some TV channels are trying to distort a gesture like Kartarpur into some kind of conspiracy to create Khalistan. One fails to understand why allowing people pilgrimage to Guru Nanak Dev ji’s birth place would assume such undertones.
Earlier, Mufti had asked India and Pakistan that they must facilitate opening of Sharda Peeth pilgrimage. “Kartarpur is a great example of how religion can bring people together instead of dividing them,” she had said on Wednesday. “It is a path envisioned by PDP founder Mufti Sb to end the turmoil in Kashmir. After Kartarpur, Delhi and Pakistan must facilitate Sharda Peeth pilgrimage for Kashmiris.”
