SRINAGAR: Much to the embarrassment of lone National Conference woman minister, Sakina Itoo, a video has appeared on the social networking site facebook in which she along with her party workers is seen compelling an old man to support her during coming elections.
According to CNS, the Minister and her workers are shown forcing the old man to take oath and swear by Allah and the Prophet (pbuh) and promise that he will support the National Conference.
Recite Kalima Toiba and take holy Quran in your hands, swear that you will support Sakina Itoo, one of the workers not in picture directs the old man which he repeatedly refuses.
The duration of the video is 3.11 minutes and in this video it is evident that Sakina Itoo and her party workers show eagerness to seek the support of the old man.
One of the workers not in picture requests the old man to do work for the party as he did in 1996. He asks the old man to take holy Quran in his hands and swear that he will work for the party to which old man replies that Holy Quran is meant for recitation and not for swearing.
After getting his answer, Sakina Itoo retorts back and supports the arguments of her worker and tells the old man that he has deviated from the right path.
Recite the Kalima Toiba and take pledge that you will support me, Sakina Itoo repeatedly asks the old man while holding his hand.
She repeatedly tells him that she harbours no malice against him.
