BJP today said that opposition to Abhinav Gupt Yatra in Kashmir was indicative of “narrow and biased” mindset of certain elements in the Valley.
“The opposition being voiced against the yatra is indicative of narrow and biased mindset of certain elements,” state BJP general secretary Harinder Gupta said in a statement here today.
Gupta said the yatra was not going to disturb the peaceful environment of the state as it was meant to reaffirm the faith and belief in the multi-faceted cultural, religious and philosophical history of Kashmir.
“It is an attempt to focus on and reiterate the composite culture of the valley.
The opposition voiced by Syed Ali Shah Geelani and others to the yatra betrays the lack of faith in Kashmiriyat as well as thousands of years old intellectual and cultural developments,” he said.
A New Delhi based organisation, Acharya Abhinav Gupt Samaroh Samiti, has announced the yatra to a cave in Beerwah in Budgam district, for the first time, in the second week of June.
