Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir unit of BJP
on Friday condemned the assault on senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan
for his controversial remarks about Kashmir, but said it will
oppose any suggestion that may weaken the relationship between
Jammu and Kashmir and the rest of the country.
"We condemned the violent assault on Bhushan for his
controversial remarks about Kashmir. Our party oppose any such
suggestion or proposal that tends to weaken the relationship
of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of India either physically
or psychologically," party`s spokesperson and National
Executive Member Jitendra Singh told reporters here.
Though, in a democracy, everybody is free to air his
views, Singh said, people like Bhushan should always bear in
mind that intellectual propriety does not allow any
responsible citizen to articulate contentious, divisive and
secessionist statements which are avoided even in the most
Citing the unanimously passed All Party Parliamentary
resolution of 1994, he said that as per the resolution, the
integration of Jammu and Kashmir with India is full and final,
leaving no room for any further debate on the issue.
Singh alleged that even those Kashmir-centric political
parties which talk of any reversal in the present political
status of the state are not honest about it and say so only
out of political expediency.
