In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has strongly condemned the “politics of caste, religion and hatred being played by the Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party in India and Jammu and Kashmir.
The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir AAP Coordination Committee, Harsh Dev Singh addressing a public meeting in Jammu said, “The saner elements in society needed to expose such divisive forces who were posing a big threat to our composite culture for achieving their vested political interests. It was painful to see the political discourse sinking abysmally and moving away from the unifying narrative of founding fathers of the constitution to abject levels of distrust, hatred and bigotry.”
He said the recent trends of dividing the electorates on the basis of caste, colour and creed for political motives could lead to a dangerous denouncement and needed to be curbed by joint efforts of civil society as well as the public authorities including the ECI.
“The people need to realize that the politics of division was being resorted to by the political parties who had failed to deliver and were hence using diversionary tactics to regain their lost ground by taking recourse to religion,” he added.
