Beef Ban: Shabir Shah Chides VHP’s Blockade Threat



Senior Hurriyat Conference (G) leader Shabir Ahmad Shah came down heavily on Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Saturday stating that Kashmiris would not succumb to intimidations and would resist every anti-Kashmir move “tooth and nail”.

Pertinently, VHP leader Leela Krishan Sharma had yesterday threatened to impose economic blockade on Kashmir region if Jammu and Kashmir Speaker allowed discussion on anti-beef ban bill in the Legislative Assembly.

“We will not make Halal Haram for ourselves at the diktats of these communal forces. If they (VHP) think they will make us succumb to their non-sense threats, they are living in fool’s paradise. This is sheer madness on their part,” Shah said in a statement here.

He said before “India occupied the territory of Jammu and Kashmir” we used to trade through Jhelum Valley road.

“If they talk of blocking the supply, it makes no difference to us,” he said.

While responding to a question of the controversial bill Shah said: “In 1862, the then Maharaja, in order to please a particular section of society, banned beef and since then some dynastic rulers didn’t even try to revoke the law just to be on chair and appease their masters in Delhi.”
