Taking a jibe at PDP led Ms Mehbooba Mufti Government, a women IAS officer from Kashmir posted in Punjab, Ruveda Salam, commented on the government’s actions to deal with the crisis in Kashmir.

Accusing Mehbooba Mufti of “hypocrisy”, Ruveda wrote on social networking website Facebook, “From wooing voters while wearing colour #green to painting #red the same valley streets, and then they question the credentials of the same religion whose symbols they used to mask their evil deeds… #hypocrisy couldn’t get worse than this!”

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Ms Mehbooba Mufti, has been off late making frequent statements on religion.

She posted the statement a day after the murder of 21-year-old ATM guard, Riyaz Ahmad, in Srinagar.

Jammu And Kashmir State is currently grappling with crisis after popular militant commander Burhan Wani was killed by forces in Kokernag on July 08.

  1. When would media in Kashmir stop giving these ‘collaborators’ so importance, they are part of the system that brutalises Kashmir, or does the media have something in it for itself ? One can only wonder, stranger things happen in Kashmir.
