‘Send Kashmiris to refugee camps in Tamil Nadu to curb protest’


New Delhi: Ruling Bharitya Janata Party MP Subramaniam Swamy on Tuesday suggested that the troubled Kashmir Valley should be de-populated and Kashmiris sent to refugee camps in Tamil Nadu to curb protests in the state.

“Solution to (the) Kashmir Valley revolt is to depopulate as was done to Kashmir Valley Hindus. For a few years keep them in refugee camps in TN (Tamil Nadu),” Swamy tweeted, a day after university and college students across the valley clashed with government forces.

Swamy is known for his controversial and fanatic comments.

Meanwhile, a BJP lawmaker from Karnatka while uploading the picture of Kashmiri youth tied with ropes in central Kashmir’s district Budgam called for a “nationwide campaign” if any action is taken against Major Leetul Gogoi, who has allegedly tied him to a jeep.

“If any kind of action is initiated against brave Maj Gogoi, let’s start a nationwide campaign to support him,” MP Pratap Simha tweeted on Tuesday. This message came a day after the India’s top law officer, attorney general Mukul Rohatgi, said the officer should be “applauded” and not criticized.

Swami has lost psychological balance: JeI

‘Such persons always deny obvious facts’

Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir Tuesday said that the statement of Subramanyam Swami, Bhartiya Janta Party Member Parliament, wherein he has suggested to depopulate Kashmiri people from the valley and keep them in the refugees camps in Tamil Nadu as a measure to stop the protests, shows that “this person has lost his psychological balance.”

In a statement issued to KNS, JeI expressed surprise “on his being in Indian parliament, whereas he should have been in some psychological treatment centre.”

“The politicians of his ilk are responsible for creating disorder and mischief on the earth and also lack all realistic and righteous approach. Such types of person always deny the obvious facts,” JeI spokesman said.

He said that the Kashmir issue is a reality which no sane and knowledgeable person can deny but unfortunately the Indian politicians are controlled by such personalities which deliberately shun away from admitting the hard realities and as such mislead the common masses. (KNS)
