Srinagar: Expressing deep grief over the killing of a Sikh youth in Jammu, senior separatist leader and Chairman Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah Friday said the BJP government in its crusade against minorities is depriving them of right to live.
In the garb of democratic claims, the BJP is trampling the rights and genuine voices of minorities on gun point, Shah, said in a statement.
Expressing heartfelt sympathy with the Sikh community on the unfortunate incident (of killing of youth), Shah said we too feel such pain and agony and very well understand Indias prejudicial attitude towards the Sikh community.
Shah said that Sikhs have every right to express their devotion towards their hero Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale who was a pro-freedom leader. Commemorating Jarnail Singh Bhindrawales day every year, is an ample proof that the late leader still lives in the hearts of millions of people. Bhindrawale instead of surrendering preferred death with honour and his name will be immortal.
