Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and leader of the National Conference, Farooq Abdullah, warned the government just before the Amarnath Yatra. He said that if something goes wrong in the Yatra, not only Jammu and Kashmir will have to bear the brunt, but the whole of India will have to bear it. Filmmaker Ashok Pandit has expressed his displeasure at this statement by Abdullah.
Ashok Pandit has shared a video of Farooq Abdullah on his Twitter account. In which he is questioned about the arrangements for Amarnath Yatra. On this, he is seen saying that if there is a single mistake, all of India will have to suffer the consequences. Captioning the video of him, Ashok Pandit wrote: “This guy is threatening.”
A discussion also broke out on social media regarding this statement by Farooq Abdullah. A user named Manish wrote: “They are openly threatening, they need to be controlled.” Umesh Nagar wrote: “Their days are gone. Now no one asks them.” Sanjay Rudram wrote: “There was peace in Kashmir during the days that Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti were under house arrest.”
Rahul Singh wrote: “It may also be that Amarnath lyrics have a plan elsewhere. Amarnath Yatra can be said just to distract attention. The government will always have to be ready.”
Shobha Ram Bharat wrote: “I don’t understand why those people are wandering outside. Whose grace is on them?” One user wrote, put those people in jail, the terrorist incident will stop. An identifier commented: “Pandit ji is not threatening, she is saying that she has made preparations… she is also one of the roots of all the turmoil.”
Actually, the journalist asked Farooq Abdullah that some special arrangements should be made regarding Amarnath Yatra. To which he said, “Look, if there is a single riot in Khuda na Khasta, the result will not only be borne by Jammu and Kashmir, but the whole of India will have to bear it. One has to be smart for that.”
When does Amarnath Yatra start? After the removal of Article 370 and 35A from Jammu and Kashmir, Amarnath Yatra will start after three full years. The Amarnath Darbar will open for devotees from June 30. Considering security and other services, it is also said that all the concrete arrangements will be made by the government. Devotees started registering for Amarnath Darshan from April 11.
