Ex-J&K CM Mufti accuses India of having “divisive laws.” A reminder after BJP’s challenge

India-origin The exponential growth of British leader Rishi Sunak in the conservative party in the UK has sparked discussion in India over contentious laws like the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019. Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti claimed that although India is “still burdened by divisive & discriminatory legislation like NRC and CAA,” Sunak’s triumph in the party leadership contest to become the next British prime minister was a proud moment for India.
“Proud moment as UK elects first Prime Minister of Indian descent. While India as a whole should be happy, Mufti wrote, “While the UK has accepted a member of an ethnic minority as its prime minister, we are still constrained by divisive & discriminatory legislation like NRC & CAA.
When the leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) questioned whether she would tolerate a minority as chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, BJP leader and former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad retaliated. Prasad also reminded Mehbooba Mufti in a series of tweets about the “exceptional presidency” of APJ Abdul Kalam and Manmohan Singh, who served as prime minister of India for ten years.
The Mehbooba Mufti Ji! Will you allow a member of the state’s minority to serve as chief minister in Jammu & Kashmir? Please respond honestly, the top BJP official tweeted.
The Bharatiya Janata Party has also come under fire for having no Muslim representatives in either the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha.
Since Rishi Sunak was elected Prime Minister of the UK, some politicians have gotten very vocal in their opposition to majoritarianism. gently reminding them of Manmohan Singh’s ten-year tenure as prime minister and the remarkable presidency of APJ Abdul Kalam Droupadi Murmu, a renowned tribal leader, has been elected as our president, he tweeted.
A capable leader of Indian ancestry is becoming the Prime Minister of the UK, continued Prasad. We should all congratulate him on this outstanding achievement. It is regrettable that certain Indian politicians are, regrettably, attempting to score political points at this time.
