National General Secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Ram Madhav took a dig at the separatist Hurriyat Conference and said that they provoke youth for violence on the one hand and on the other want their own children to get government jobs. “Look at the hypocrisy of Hurriyat, on one hand incite youth for violence and on the other hand want their children to get government jobs,” he said.
All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) is an alliance of 26 political, social and religious organisations formed in 1993, as a united political front to raise the cause of Kashmiri independence. This alliance has historically been viewed positively by Pakistan as it contests the claim of the Indian government over the State of Jammu and Kashmir. It supports the Pakistani claim that Kashmir is the unfinished agenda of Partition and needs to be solved “as per the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”

Earlier too, Ram Madhav had spoken about the Hurriyat’s invitation asking tourists to visit the valley. He took a jibe at them and said that the leaders must have confused ‘tourists’ as ‘terrorists’. He added that the Hurriyat leaders must have made a spelling mistake as their main agenda has been to invite terrorists. Madhav said: “Unless terrorism stops unless violence comes to an end and peace returns, from where the tourists will come? he said. “This (inviting tourists) is the spelling mistake and the biggest hypocrisy of Hurriyat.” The BJP general secretary further criticised former Union Minister and opposition National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah for his support to the Hurriyat conference.
