Dissent Has Been ‘Criminalized’ In India, Says Mehbooba After Questioning

SRINAGAR: The former chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Thursday said that the dissent has been criminalized in the country, saying that there will be no change in the party’s strategy over fighting for the rights of people including the restoration of Article 370.

“One who speaks against you (Government of India) is being either booked under seditious charges or being summoned by the investigative agencies,” Mehbooba said after nearly five-hour long questioning by Enforcement Department (ED) here in Srinagar with regard to the money laundering case

“I was questioned about my father’s property in Bijbehara, which we have sold out and was asked how you sold it and other related things. Second about the funds during her tenure as Chief Minister,” she said, as per news agency KNO, adding that she has nothing to hide as she is pure.

Mehbooba further stated that there will be no change in the party’s stance over the fight for the rights of Jammu and Kashmir people especially regarding the restoration of Article 370.
