LONDON: Shedding light on the Indian government’s schemes, Qurban Hussain, the member of British House of Lords, said “Prime Minister Narendra Modi can create any adventure in Kashmir for the sake of votes.”
Sharing the details of his meeting with the British foreign minister for South Asia, Lord Qurban said that he informed the minister last week that the incumbent Indian government could go to any limits in order to garner votes in upcoming general elections there.
Speaking to ARY News, he further said, in the wake of Pulwama attack, the British minister has been apprised of India’s plot to deploy additional troops in the occupied valley. “India will create a reason to send more troops to Kashmir.”
The anti-Kashmir sentiments have been on rise in entire India, leading to several harassment incidents of Kashmiris by extremist groups.
The Pulwama attack
On 14 February 2019, a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu Srinagar National Highway was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at Lethpora in the Pulwama district of India-Ocuupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The attack resulted in the death of more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel and the attacker. The responsibility for the attack was claimed by the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed. A local youth named Adil Ahmed Dar was identified as the attacker.
Indian media and politicians have since been blaming Pakistan for the attack without any evidence.
