Jammu, Apr 23: RSS on Wednesday came down hard on separatists raising pro-Pakistan slogans, saying they should be deported to Pakistan.
"Those who are chanting pro-Pakistan slogans, especially the separatists along with their families, the government of India shall not allow them to live on the soil of Indian nation," Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar said.
"This may result in the peace and prosperity of the Kashmiri nationalists. The government of India should deport all Kashmiri separatist leaders to Pakistan," he said.
Kumar, who is also patron of Muslim Rashtriya Manch, expressed his views at a seminar on the "Challenges before the country and the role of the India's Muslims", organised by the Jammu and Kashmir unit of Manch.
Kavinder Gupta, Speaker, J-K Constituent Assembly, was the chief guest at the programme.
Kumar further said that it is goodwill of people and government in India that people who raise pro-Pakistan slogans are allowed to live on its soil but now the limit of tolerance is over.
Kumar also advised J-K Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayed to focus on the development and respect the mandate given by the people and the hand of support to the coalition government forwarded by BJP. Government should work for overall development of the state in all sectors...tourism, education, health, peace and development of the state, he said.
Kumar expressed his grave concern over the communal riots that have occurred since Independence in the country. He said this has only resulted in the loss of life and property of the common man.
He appealed to the Muslim community not to get exploited in the hands of opportunistic groups like Hurriyat Conference factions and other politicians.
"These things add misery to the lives of the people and disturbance to the peace process, prosperity, development, education system of Jammu and Kashmir. This also leads to the increase in the gap between rich and poor," he said.
National Convener, MRM, Haji Mohd Afzal also addressed the gathering and said that there have been only Muslim chief ministers in Jammu and Kashmir and everyone has worked only for his personal benefits and gains.
"Contrary to this, MRM is working day and night for the welfare of the minorities of India especially of Jammu and Kashmir," he said.
