Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said that no one is a bigger human rights activist than her.
“Human rights ke thekedar jo Facebook pe purani photos daalte hain, unhe batana chahti hoon ki mujse bada HR activist koi nahi hai (To those self-appointed custodians of human rights who put up old photos on Facebook, I want to tell them that there is no bigger activist of human rights than me),” said Mufti.
Mehbooba Mufti said that the biggest challenge her state faces at the moment is ensuring that the Jammu and Kashmir police does parenting more than policing. “J&K police ko policing se zyada parenting ka kaam karna padega. Ye humara sabse bada challenge hai (J&K police need to do parenting more than policing. That is our biggest challenge),” Mufti was quoted as having said.
She also said that it’s the youth who have to face the brunt of the protests in Jammu and Kashmir, who are often used as ‘shields’. “Poor youth are being used as shields, no leader or his kin is ever injured in the protest, only the poor,” Mufti said. She also spoke about the human rights violations in her state and said that no one is a bigger human rights activist than her.
