Muslims, said Omar Abdullah, are oppressed because of their religious beliefs.


India is currently not an accepted state of Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said today, adding that the decision “would be something else” if the public knew the religious rights of Muslims “would not be protected” in the country .

“When we decided to agree with India, we agreed on a country where every religion will be treated equally. We were not told that one religion would get preferential treatment and the other would be oppressed,” the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister said in a speech. to reporters in Srinagar.

“If we knew, maybe our decision was something else. We consciously took that decision after we were told that every religion would get the same rights,” he said.

Leaders of the National Conference also spoke about the ongoing controversy in states like Karnataka, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh through loudspeakers in mosques during azan or prayers, Hijab in classes and Halal gatherings. Muslims, he said, were oppressed because of their religious beliefs and way of life.

“Why can’t we use loudspeakers in mosques? If other religious places have the right to use them, why not mosques,” Mr Abdullah asked.

In the past few weeks, states like Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat have witnessed clashes during the Ram Navami march. Violence erupted when a procession, the sound of loud music, passed through Muslim -controlled areas and was allegedly attacked with stones.

In Karnataka, amid protests by students being banned from wearing headscarves in class, another controversy erupted when right-wing Hindu groups protested the sale of Halal meat.

“You told us not to sell halal meat. Why? Our religion tells us to eat halal meat. Why do you forbid? We do not force you to eat Halal. Some Muslims force you to eat halal? You eat the way. You like to eat and we do like that which we like, ”Mr Abdullah said.

Muslims, the former chief minister said, have never objected to loudspeakers at temples or other religious places.

“We never told you there can’t be a microphone in the temple. Don’t you use a microphone in the temple and Gurdwaras. But you are distracted by our microphone only. You become confused with our religion. You don’t like the way we dress, the way we pray. You don’t there are problems with other people. They spread hatred, “he said.

Mr Abdullah’s comments came a day after 100 former bureaucrats wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to call for what they called “hate politics” to be stopped by the BJP -controlled government.
