Farooq Abdullah’s brother, Sheikh Mustafa Kamal, questions Pulwama attack, gives clean chit to Pakistan

Congress and NC have forged an alliance in Jammu and Kashmir to take on BJP in the state in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections

Extending support to controversial remarks of the chief of Indian Overseas Congress Sam Pitroda about airstrikes on Pakistan, National Conference leader Sheikh Mustafa Kamal has given a clean chit to Pakistan and Jaish-e-Mohammed for its role the Pulwama attack, which had left 40 jawans martyred, and cast doubt on the Indian government, instead.


“Look the way Pulwama attack happened, everyone is questioning it. Even me,” Mustafa said to the News18. “They have refused to even divulge full details about the attack. First, they said 49 Jawans have died, then nearly 40. You cannot even arrive at the correct figures of your dead security personnel.” He added.

He further added that the incumbent government is preventing the truth from coming out.

“When in future the regime will change, the truth will come out upon investigation” NC leader said.

Sheikh Mustafa is the brother of former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Farooq Abdullah. He has served in state’s cabinet in the year of 1983,1987 and 1996.

A not-so-different statement was also given by Sam Pitroda, who is a considered close confidant of Congress President of Rahul Gandhi, questioning death toll in the Balakot airstrike carried out by the Indian Air Force in response to the Pulwama terror attack while saying that it was wrong to attack Pakistan for Pulwama attack.

He also had felt that it was not right to “punish” Pakistan because of a few terrorists. “Eight people (26/11 terrorists) come and do something, you don’t jump on entire nation (Pakistan). Naive to assume that just because some people came here and attacked, every citizen of that nation is to be blamed. I don’t believe in that way,” Sam Pitroda was quoted by reports.

Congress and NC have forged an alliance in Jammu and Kashmir to take on BJP in the state in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
