Prof Saifuddin Soz, former union minister and senior Congress leader today said PDP-BJP coalition government should denounce "provocative" procession in support of rape and murder accused of minor Kathua girl
"So called "North Pole-South Pole coalition" must denounce Kathua sectarian provocative procession. It is so tragic to find secular forces in Jammu in tight spot in facing nakedly exhibited communalism by the RSS/BJP combine at Kathua, the other day. The leaders in the secular space in Jammu have faced it all along and they should continue to fight against this nefarious sectarian menace," Soz said in a statement.
"The procession led by RSS, BJP elements in Kathua, the other day, against the legal and lawful proceedings by the J&K Police involving a rapist and a murderer is by itself a heinous crime against humanity. After all, the question remains with the civil society in Jammu as to what these hooligans want the police to do when an eight year old innocent child was raped and murdered by the criminal who has been brought to book under law. The RSS/BJP elements who led the sectarian and provocative procession must be brought to book under law," he said.
"It is an occasion for secular parties and individuals in Jammu to rally around J&K Police which is trying to enforce law and order and fight against sectarian elements who, unfortunately, get suppport from the RSS/BJP leaders who are part of the Ruling Coalition. The so-called 'North Pole-South Pole coalition' must, at least, denounce the communal outrage committed by the provocative sectarian elements in Kathua, the other day, in a Cabinet meeting," he said.
