Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir today refuted that the allegation that it supports a particular mainstream party.
“So far election politics is concerned, Jamaat Islami Jammu and Kashmir has long back taken a unanimous decision not to take any part in it directly or indirectly and this decision has been communicated to all the associates of Jamaat with direction to desist from and not to take any interest in it even symbolically. Jamaat is today bound by the same decision in letter and spirit. The rambling from different quarters in this regard and the allegations of supporting a particular pro-India party against Jamaat are totally baseless and concocted,” JeI spokesperson Advocate Zahid Ali said in a statement.
“Recently the appeal from the President of National conference Dr. Farooq Abdullah to support him in the elections to curb the growing influence of the communalist parties like BJP may create misunderstanding in the public. Further another NC leader Roohullah Budgami’s allegation of giving entry to Hindu Communalist forces to the valley tantamount to "criminal chiding the judge.” he said.
“The very foundation of NC is based on the enmity to Islam and encouragement of the non-Islamic forces at whose behest the slogan of Naya Kashmir was given to pave the way for the growth of the Hindutva and atheist philosophies. This obvious change was unambiguously observed when in 1938 the Muslim Conference was changed in the NC at the instance of these forces,” he added.
