People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday (March 27) while addressing a public rally in Baramulla said that if her party is voted to power, they will lift the ban imposed on the Jamaat-e-Islami (J&K).
“Recently it was ordered to shut down the Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) schools, orphanages and offices. They didn’t dare to come out themselves at that time (to protest). They were in a difficulty and no one talked about it. Only PDP came forward. We didn’t allow their schools, their orphanages to close down. When time will come and we will have power, we will end this ban,” Mufti said.
The former chief minister also said that turning the state into a prison will not solve the Kashmir problem. “The Kashmir issue is an ideology; it can only be resolved through an ideology, and not by prison,” said Mufti.
