Congress’ Mani Shankar Aiyar likens Kashmir to Palestine, calls Modi a ‘Zionist trampling on freedom of Kashmiris’

The cabal of the Congress party and its cronies have resorted to inciting the people of Jammu and Kashmir by deliberately parroting Pakistan's narrative over the issue.

Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyer has now emerged from obscurity to put out a controversial statement on the historic event of abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the Jammu and Kashmir.

Venting out his anger, Congress’ election-time wonder Mani Shankar Aiyar equated Kashmir’s situation to Palestine while claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah extinguished the rights of the Kashmiris.

In an article written in Indian Express titled “Who are we to teach Kashmiris the virtues of democracy?”, Mani Shankar Aiyar has lamented over the Modi government’s decision to scrap special status to Kashmir. In doing so, Aiyar has brought up the reference of Palestine to bring equivalence to Kashmir issue.

Aiyar claims that Modi-Shah duo has learned their lessons from their mentor, Benjamin Netanyahu and the Zionists, including former Israel Prime Minister Menachem Begin. Aiyar also added that PM Modi and Amit Shah have learnt to trample on the freedom, dignity and self-respect of the Kashmiris similar to Israel, who he claims had tried to get away with seven decades of merciless oppression of the Palestinians.

Furthering his hateful propaganda, Mani Shankar Aiyer, whose hearts often bleeds for Pakistan and its terrorists, wrote that Modi-Shah has promised the Kashmiris “development” in exchange for forced integration at the point of the rifle and pellet shots into the eyes of their children.

This is not the first time that Aiyer has stood behind the terrorist state of Pakistan to foul-mouth his own country. In 2018, Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had courted a controversy after he had claimed that he was happy with Pakistan’s policy and sad with India’s approach on the India-Pakistan issue.

Aiyer is known for his Pakistan love. In his 2015 interview to a Pakistani news channel, Aiyar had famously asked for Pakistan’s help to ‘remove’ PM Modi and bring a Congress government to power.

Following India’s historic move to strip Article Article 370, which granted a separate status to Jammu and Kashmir state and a subsequent bill aimed to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories, a certain political establishment, media and intelligentsia in the country seemed to be unhappy. The cabal of the Congress party and its cronies resorted to inciting the people of Jammu and Kashmir by deliberately toeing the Pakistani line over the issue.

With this comment, Mani Shankar Aiyer has joined the long line of Congress leaders who have started sounding like Pakistan’s spokespersons.

Earlier, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhry, the Congress party’s leader in Lok Sabha had kicked up a storm in the Assembly today after he parroted the lines of Pakistan by questioning the government whether Article 370 and the state of Jammu and Kashmir was an internal matter.

The Congress party also feared to take a stand on the issue and pandered to the sentiments of Pakistan. Digvijaya Singh had also toed the line of Pakistan by bringing equivalence to the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir and the breaking up of Pakistan to form Bangladesh.

After parroting the lines of Pakistan by questioning the Indian government over Article 370 and the state of Jammu and Kashmir, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad made an atrocious comment about NSA Ajit Doval to Shopian saying he had paid money to few Kashmiris on his visit to Shopian.

Earlier today, former Union Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram played his communal card when he said that the BJP scrapped special status because J&K is a Muslim majority in Kashmir. He added that had it been a Hindu majority state, the BJP would not have touched it.
