People want Kashmir but not Kashmiris—situation is depressing, Chidambaram breaks silence


New Delhi – Senior Congress leader P Chidambharam broke his silence on Thursday and expressed that “some people want Kashmir to be part of India but don’t want Kashmiris to be part of Indians. He exuded that the irony of the situation is depressing.

He also condemned Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy’s hateful statements that called for the boycott of Kashmiri products.

“The irony of the situation is depressing. We want Kashmir to be part of India, but we do not want Kashmiris to be part of Indians,” he said in a tweet.

Chidambaram said the ‘Statue of Unity’, the 182 metre statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, located near Sardar Sarovar Dam in Gujarat, watches over the governor of Meghalaya and others who seem to think that Kashmiris have no place in India.

Sporadic incidents of threats to kashmiri traders and students across Dehrahun, Jammu, Kolkata and Muzaffarnagar have been reported.

The unfortunate incidents began to unfold after over 49 CRPF personnel were killed by a deadly suicide bomb by a Jaish’s terrorist.
