Need to counter RSS: Shah


Srinagar: Terming the growing activities of communal elements in the state as a matter of serious concern,the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah said the pro-freedom camps “must rise to counter such threat”.
In a statement, Shabir Ahmad Shah, who continues to be under house arrest, said the growing activities of RSS and other communal forces in state particularly in Jammu and Ladakh are threat to J&K’s integrity.He said in Jammu, the situation has become worse for Muslims due to growing communal activities by fascist parties who want to divide the state and erode it’s disputed status. Terming the Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh as a single unit, Shah said all the conspiracies aimed at dividing the state or eroding its disputed nature will be foiled with strict resistance.
“They are raking up the issues of Article 370 and 35A just to abrogate them in a very deceitful manner.The resistance camps have to rise to counter such challenge of fascist parties and foil their wicked plans,” he said. Shah said our demand of “right to self-determination” takes in view the aspirations of all the communities of the state and we consider the present deteriorating situation of state as a conspiracy to spread the religious intolerance among people.”
