Akbar Lone, the National Conference candidate from Kupwara for the upcoming Lok Sabha election, has courted controversy by raising pro-Pakistan slogans and even said at a recent rally that he would abuse those who abuse the neighbouring country.
“The other side of this is a Muslim country, it should remain prosperous and successful. Our friendship with them should intensify. India and Pakistan should have a friendship with each other and I am an admirer of this friendship. If anyone will abuse them once, I will abuse him ten times from here,” he said while addressing a public rally on Saturday.
He has made provocative statements in the past. In February last year, the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly witnessed a ruckus with Lone raising pro-Pakistan slogans in response to BJP’s slogans against the neighboring country.
