Lesser-known Jammu-based outfit ‘Dogra Front’ on Thursday staged a protest against Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti’s statement to talk with Pakistan for the settlement of Kashmir issue.
Eyewitnesses told a local news agency, Kashmir News Trust that protesters who hit Jammu roads raised slogans against Mufti. The protesters were carrying placards and photographs of Mufti seeking she should be lodged at Tihar Jail for ‘anti-India’ remarks.
Pertinently, Mufti recently said when talks with Taliban materialized and were held in Doha, why can’t there be a dialogue with India and Pakistan on Kashmir.
The protesters said Mufti’s statement was anti-India in nature and she should be booked and jailed.
The protest was staged on a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to preside at an all-party meeting on Jammu and Kashmir in which over a dozen leaders from eight political parties are participating.
Dogra Front which claims to be an organization for the protection and safeguarding of the rights of Dogra community of Jammu staged the first protest in Jammu after the abrogation of J-K’s limited autonomy on 5 August 2019. (KNT)
