Srinagar: In the wake of the recent terror attack in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has launched a scathing critique of the BJP, questioning their claims about the abrogation of Article 370 and its impact on militancy in the region.

Addressing the media, Abdullah remarked, “They (BJP) were claiming that entire militancy is linked with Article 370 and after its abrogation, peace would prevail here. We continuously said that Article 370 had nothing to do with militancy and even if it is removed there won’t be any effect on militancy. This has been proved now.”

The former Chief Minister accused the BJP of being ignorant and pointed out that the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir is worsening day by day. “Who is responsible? When we were in power, we used to be blamed for such attacks so today, it is BJP that is responsible for these attacks,” he stated.

Abdullah also commented on the efficacy of airstrikes conducted by the Indian government, referencing the Balakot strikes. “Airstrikes were conducted earlier as well but did the attack stop? They exaggerated about Balakot strikes, but militancy didn’t stop. If they can assure that by conducting airstrikes, they can free the whole J&K from militancy, then we are ready to listen.”

The Kathua attack, which resulted in multiple casualties, has once again brought the spotlight on the ongoing conflict in the region and the effectiveness of the central government’s strategies in combating terrorism. Abdullah’s remarks highlight the political tensions and differing viewpoints on how best to address the security challenges in Jammu and Kashmir.
