Kashmiris urged to foil designs of Hindu fanatics with unity
Srinagar, August 15, 2013 (PPI-OT): Noted Indian civil society activist, Swami Agnivesh, has urged the people of Kashmir to foil the designs of Hindu fanatics by maintaining unity in their ranks.
Swami Agnivesh in a media interview with a Srinagar-based wire agency said that it was a high time that the people of Kashmir get united and defeat the evil intentions and motives of a fanatic party and its rightwing organizations, who wanted to divide them on communal lines.
He expressed happiness that in the current year majority of people of India restrained themselves from visiting Amarnath shrine, which, according to him, had become an epicentre for spreading abhorrence and hatred between Muslims and Hindus.
He maintained that the Hindu fanatics were exploiting the sentiments of people over the name of Amarnath Yatra. “It is absolutely a superstition that wishes of people could be fulfilled by visiting Amarnath cave. People are being befooled while the only motive behind the Yatra is to assemble people, spread hatred and divide the two communities,” he said.
Agnivesh said that he was happy that so many people had understood the game plan of the fanatic Hindus and they kept themselves aloof from Amarnath Yatra.
To a question, he asked the puppet authorities to take the so-called Village Defence Committees (VDCs) into account and disband them. He added that the VDCs were responsible for disharmony and the puppet regime must take appropriate steps either to curb activities of the VDC members or disband them.
