BUDGAM: Peoples Democratic Party (Youth) Wing today held a protest demonstration against the authorities in Budgam. The protest was lead by PDP Youth wing district president Shahnawaz Mir. Protestors demanded that ban on Jamat e Islami be revoked and all the religious scholars affiliated with Jamat be released without any delay.
“It’s an irony that BJP is using National Investigation Agency (NIA) to get political mileage. We strongly condemn summoning political leaders like Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and relatives of Hurriyat conference especially son of Syed Ali Geelani. Activists of Jamat-e-Islami are being summoned by security agencies and harassed . Many have been jailed, this is clear violation of Right to Religion guaranteed under Constitution.
On the other hand extremist organisations like Hindu Mahabsabha , Bajrang Dal and VHP are allowed to continue their communal agenda in J&K and outside state as well. PDP Youth wing Budgam will hold tehsil and block level protests in coming days and weeks “said Shahnawaz Mir PDP District President Budgam (Youth Wing)
Scores of activists of PDP youth wing were carrying placards and marched from DC Office Budgam to main chowk. They were raising slogans against BJP and Governor Administration.
