By: Tariq Shah VOV
In a series of tweets former chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti has said that people should speak against the repressive policies of the government and should not maintain silence on crucial issues of human rights.
She said that what was started in Kashmir post August 5, 2019 is now being witnessed everywhere in the country and people should now speak up against such harsh measures.
In one of the tweets she said, “One can’t even compare the oppression unleashed in J&K since 2019 but the common denominators are obvious. What started in J&K was sadly met with an air of indifference & has now engulfed the entire country. When will we speak up?”
In another tweet on the same subject she said, “Applying Section 144 wherever human rights & dignity is trampled has emerged as GOIs preferred approach. This government shows no hesitation in using an iron fist with its own people but welcomes Chinese troops with open arms”.
