Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has come down heavily on the Congress party for trying to politicize the murder of the only Hindu pandit village head in Kashmir valley. Kher himself is a Kashmiri pandit.
Terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag fired upon Congress Sarpanch Ajay Pandita at Lokbawan, who later succumbed to his injuries at a hospital on Monday. According to the police, the terrorists fired at the 40-year-old Kashmiri pandita, a sarpanch of Lokbowan Larkipora, at around 6 pm, leaving him critically wounded.
“I think it is shameful on the part of anyone who is trying to politicise this whole thing. It’s not only shameful, but it is also ridiculous. Anything from Kashmir to Kanyakumari is India. Bringing this angle of politicising by Congress is horrifyingly sad. An Indian has been martyred by the same people who 30 years ago pushed 500,00 Kashmiri pandits out of the valley. It is a sick mentality. I spoke to his daughter, your mind does not even think that he belonged to this party or that party. I can not understand how somebody can say something like that,” said Anupan Kher.
Meanwhile, the deceased village head’s family has also slammed the party. Pandita’s daughter, Niyanta on Friday, slammed the party and stated that politics should not be dragged into the murder of the ‘son of India.’ She added that there is no need to ‘politicise’ the issue and the family demands ‘justice and nothing more.’
She added that the family will go back to Kashmir and will not be afraid of speaking the truth.
