National Conference patron and Member Parliament, Dr Farooq Abdullah on Thursday said that India was going through a worst period of history as attempts were being made to divide people on communal lines and “nobody knows about how many pieces this country will be divided into under BJP rule.”

“We have to stop this as soon as possible or else you will see destruction everywhere ahead…You will see blood everywhere because this regime is leaving no stone unturned to create an atmosphere of hatred across the country,” Abdullah said while addressing the party workers at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhawan, Jammu during a programme organised to remember Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar on his death anniversary.

Abdullah said that BJP leaders were no different from Britishers who also ruled India for 200 years by dividing people on communal lines.

“Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, who unfurled the tricolor from the ramparts of Lal Qila for the first time would never have thought that a dispensation would come and break his country into so many pieces,” he said. “Nobody knows about how many pieces BJP government will further divide India into.”

While referring to Bulandshahar incident, the NC patron said that it was very unfortunate that the CM of a state was busy watching Kabaddi match when an SHO was being killed by the mob protesting against alleged cow slaughter in Uttar Pradesh.

“Actually, the BJP leaders are ‘Daaku number 1.’ Only they’re responsible for every single killing in the name of religion,” he said.

Abdullah also hit out at the RSS leaders for what he said preaching hatred from the government institutions.

“The ruling dispensation in Delhi has given most of the top positions, even in education system to RSS people and they’re the most useless people in the country,” he said.

He also targeted BJP leaders for asking for votes “in the name of Ram.”

He said, “They (BJP) have a wrong conception that Ram only belongs to them…Ram belongs to the world…Allah and Ram should not be used for garnering votes because neither Allah nor Ram is contesting elections…We’re contesting elections and we should convince the voters with our policies and programmes not Allah and Ram.”

Abdullah said that the people of the country don’t fear about any danger from Pakistan but they fear about the communal divide “mastered by BJP and RSS men within India.”

He also targeted the BJP leaders for abusing Congress leaders like Nehru and Indira Gandhi.
