JAMMU: Strongly condemning the decimated Congress leader Digvijay Singh for the obnoxious remarks on abrogation of Article 370 besides preaching on secularism and Kashmiriyat, the senior BJP leader questioned, “Where was Digvijay Singh when Kashmiri Pandits were thrown out of their homes and hearths from the valley and the so called secularist Congress leaders maintained a criminal silence? Was this Kashmiriyat that Diggy is talking about?”He demanded a written apology from him to Kashmiri Hindus for insulting them.It is pertinent to mention here that Digvijay while responding to Shahzeb Jillani, a Pakistan-based journalist currently residing in Germany had said, “Democracy was not there in Kashmir when they revoked Article 370, ‘Insaniyat’ was not there as they had put everyone behind bars. Meanwhile, ‘Kashmiriyat’ is something that is the fundamental of secularism. Because in a Muslim-majority state there was a Hindu king and both worked together. In fact, the reservation in Kashmir was given to Kashmiri Pandits, therefore, the decision of revoking Article 370 and reducing the statehood of J&K, is a sad decision. And the Congress party will certainly have to relook at this issue,” Sethi said that the statement given by Digvijay Singh is very unfortunate and in fact it is totally anti-national and deserves criticism from all the nationalists of the World’s largest democracy.Sethi said that Rahul Gandhi should take immediate cognizance of the antinational statement of its leader and initiate stringent action against him.The BJP leader reiterated that it is the revocation of Article 370 which has given rights to women, refugees, Valmikis, etc in J&K.He demanded Digvijay Singh’s written apology to the Kashmiri Hindus for issuing false and totally wrong statements about them that has insulted the whole community which bore the brunt of fundamentalism in the valley due to which they had to leave their homes in valley. All this resulted out of the wrong policies adopted consistently by the Congress in the Valley.Sethi said, “I strongly condemn the terror attack on civilians and security personnel in Sopore and other parts of Kashmir and hold the statements made by people like Digvijay Singh also responsible for such attacks as these boost the morale of terrorists and their operators in the Valley.
