Former Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Mehbooba Mufti said on Tuesday that if her party comes to power , it will scarp the ban imposed by the government on Kashmir Jamaat-e-Islami and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front.
Addressing the party convention in Baramulla, Mehbooba said that banning organisations like Jamaat-e-Islami and JKLF will have far-reaching consequences and such measures only increase the level of alienation and frustration among the people.
In democracy, ideas are allowed to flourish and not choked. By taking such undemocratic, unconstitutional and unnatural measures, the government in actual is trying to show its electorate how tough it is against the Muslims and against Jammu and Kashmir.Mehbooba Mufti
Mehbooba said in her address while assuring that if PDP comes to power, it will make efforts to revoke the ban imposed on Jamaat-e-Islami and JKLF.
Senior PDP leader Muzaffar Hussain Beg while addressing the meeting said they were ready to provide legal assistance to both Jamaat-e-Islami and JKLF Supreme Court and the High Court.
