Jammu : Expressing concern over the happenings in different parts of the country in recent past to include the riots on or before Ram Navmi including the Hijab row, Brig Veteran Anil Gupta, Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party has said that these events are part of the toolkit conspiracy which aims at provoking communal riots in the country to defame the Modi government.
In a statement issued here on Saturday Brigadier Anil Gupta said “after failing repeatedly to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party through ballot, the disgruntled opposition has taken recourse to bullets, stone pelting, arson and swords. Their sole motive is to disturb peace in the country and then plead before international human right organisations by playing the victim card”.
The statement further reads “In doing so they hope to defame the global image of Prime Minister Modi whose agenda of development is all inclusive and recognised so by the global community less militancy supporting governments”.
“They may succeed in disturbing peace temporarily but will never succeed in their ulterior motive of dividing the nation on communal basis. The days of appeasement are gone and like a true secular democracy Modi government firmly believes in Sarv Dharam Sambhav,” reiterated Brig Gupta in the above referred statement.
Brig Gupta also warned the administration and people of Jammu that attempts are being made to vitiate the prevailing peaceful atmosphere in Jammu, known worldwide for its communal harmony, by these forces as part of the over-all agenda. Recounting the events in last two to three weeks ranging from militant activities, temple desecration,idol breaking, planting IED etc, Brig Gupta said that all these are aimed at triggering communal violence. While analysing various activities, Brig Gupta said, “A careful analysis will reveal the sinister design. Most of the activities have taken place in and around Muslim dominated areas with the purpose to provoke Hindus. Luckily, so far, all these attempts have failed. But they are not going to give up so easily.”
Taking note of various statements of the leaders of the Gupkar Alliance, Brig Gupta said that it is not a coincidence but part of the same plan that their statements are communally loaded. By calling the power cuts in the morning, reason for which is well-known, deliberate during the Sehri and Iftaar, an ex-CM has tried repeatedly to provoke the majority community. Another ex-CM is making Hijab as an issue. All these actions are part of the same toolkit, asserted Brig Gupta.
