Bukhari exposed PDP stand: Kamal

Srinagar: National Conference Additional General Secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal Friday lashed out at PDP for perpetrating a “politics of contrarianism, hypocrisy and insensitivity towards the youth of the State by promoting those individuals who have been involved in wreaking havoc with the future of our youth through wanton corruption and systemic harassment and torture.”

“Today PDP has become a safe haven not only for those caught red-handed involved in scams and wanton corruption but also those individuals like former SSP Ashiq Bukhari who is a figure sworn with conviction to the repression and harassment of the youth of J&K. Young children in the State have numerous tales of torture and extra-judicial torment to relate when it comes to Ashiq Bukhari. Mufti Sayeed was dreaded for the massacres of GawKadal, Bijbehara and Handwara and AshiqBukkhari is a figure of notoriety when it comes to his brutal and ruthless track-record as a police officer – so this association while very natural is a prime example of what PDP represents as a political party. Mufti Sayeed stands completely exposed,” Kamal said in a statement to KNS.

“Speaking of change while empowering notorious, dreaded figures like Ashiq Bukhari – whose very mention brings tears to the eyes of hundreds of mothers who have lost their young sons and who has a questionable track-record when it comes to extortion from the youth – is as despicable as PDP’s politics can get. Today PDP has lost a right to utter a single word on Human Rights violations in J&K by promoting arguably the most dreaded and ruthless police officer in their party after his retirement,” he said.
