Mehbooba Mufti said : “Even during the peak unrest in 2010 and 2016, there was no killing of Kashmiri Pandits. But the atmosphere of hate they have created, especially after ‘The Kashmir Files’ movie, a narrative is being pushed to poison minds. Muzaffar Shah, during our interaction with the LG, told him that this constant Hindu-Muslim debate on TV channels for four hours is further fuelling this. It also directly affects the people of Jammu and Kashmir because when you target Muslims, it widens the gap,” External link

Mehbooba Mufti said : "While the central government is playing a game of pitting Hindus against Muslims to hide its failures and presenting them as the biggest enemies of each other, Jammu and Kashmir is the only state where Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Buddhists are living together as one," "So, it is the duty of all people of Jammu and Kashmir to stand together with those who live among us -- be it Kashmiri Pandits or Sikh brothers, like the way we had protected their lives and properties in 1947 when Gandhiji also had seen a ray of hope from Kashmir at that time," External link

We want the violence to stop. They (BJP) want the fight with Pakistan to prevail. They talk about Hindu-Muslim, Jinnah, Babur, Aurangzeb...

Earlier they would rake up the name of Jinnah, now they have gone far ahead. Now they take the names of Mughal rulers Babar and Aurangzeb, who ruled the nation 800 and 500 years ago. What have we to do with them? Why are we remembering them? Don’t they have issues of road, water and electricity to address?” “We (J&K) supply electricity to other parts of the country. However, it (UT) has no power for our farmers to ensure water supply to irrigate their fields. People are suffering for want of water. Our youth are moving from pillar to post for jobs. They are in distress.

The stage that was set-up for her in Delhi where she made a statement that contesting polls was not her interest at the moment. Although it seemed that she wanted to assure people of Jammu and Kashmir who are at the receiving end that she will stay away from polls, but the reality I derive from these statements is that she either wants to quit politics or she is quite scared” External link

Earlier they would rake up the name of Jinnah, now they have gone far ahead. Now they take the names of Mughal rulers Babar and Aurangzeb, who ruled the nation 800 and 500 years ago. What have we to do with them? Why are we remembering them? Don’t they have issues of road, water and electricity to address?” “We (J&K) supply electricity to other parts of the country. However, it (UT) has no power for our farmers to ensure water supply to irrigate their fields. People are suffering for want of water. Our youth are moving from pillar to post for jobs.
