Srinagar, April 13, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Tasaduq Mufti, the so-called minister for tourism and brother of the puppet Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, has denounced his own party for non-fulfilling its commitments. Tasaduq Mufti in a media interview in Srinagar said, “We (PDP) have ended up being partners in a crime (with BJP) that an entire generation of Kashmiris might have to pay with their blood”.
He said, “I am not going to be quiet and act as if I am unmoved by the tragedy that is unfolding at ground level, just because I am part of the government. All lives matter. Lives of the people on both sides of ideological divide. I see nothing wrong in standing with the people to find a solution to the ongoing crisis”.
Tasaduq said, “I do not wish to talk about tourism at a time when a mood of bereavement has filled the Kashmir valley…Tourism in Kashmir has suffered a huge setback whenever there is uprising because it is an industry for which peace is imperative. No one can risk his life and visit a place where he doesn’t get a sense of joy.”
