Srinagar: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, has been accused of making anti-national statements and extending support to organisations such as the Jamaat-e-Islamia of the state, which has been banned under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
Comments which have been cited in the dossier include challenging accession of Jammu and Kashmir to India in case the Article 370 was abrogated, and statements on government forces killing militants.
As her dossier explains, “The subject has been stoking gullible masses so as to create issues of disturbance in public order and demoralizing security forces by making unscrupulous statements vis-a-vis the security exercises being undertaken for safety and security of common people.”
The dossier also goes on to call Mufti a “Daddy’s girl”.
To quote, “The subject is referred for her dangerous and insidious machinations and usurping profile and nature by the masses as “Daddy’s girl” and “Kota Rani” based on profile a historical medieval queen of Kashmir, who rose to power by virtue of undertaking intrigues ranging from Poisoning of her opponents to ponyardings.”
The statements were shared on Mufti’s Twitter feed — now handled by her daughter Iltija.
In a follow-up post she adds, “Not unusual that she adored, respected & loved her father. They had an unshakeable bond & were each other’s closest confidante. Which is why she honoured Mufti sahabs commitment after his sudden death in 2016. Didn’t know loving your parent constitutes a crime.
In a lengthy thread on Twitter, the handle also took up other topics from the dossier.
“It alleges that PDP party symbol has been taken from Muslim United Front which participated in 1987 elections in J&K. PDPs party symbol has been approved by ECI. Is GOI going to question & undermine decisions of ECI so brazenly now?” she asked, attaching a photo of the Janta Dal (United) party flag in the next tweet.
“Wondering what the green in their party flag stands for? Or is a party credible & nationalistic enough only when it’s BJPs ally?”
