National Conference "Disowns" Leader's Pro-Pak Slogans In Jammu And Kashmir Assembly

An Indian lawmaker raised pro-Pakistan slogans in the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly on Saturday after his counterparts from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) allegedly chanted anti-Pakistan slogans in the wake of a suspected militant attack on an Indian army camp.

Meanwhile, Kavinder Gupta, the speaker of the assembly, suggested that increasing Rohingya and Bangladeshi populations in the region may have played a role in the attack.

Following this, Speaker expunged the words and the House resumed normal working.

He said, "Yes I raised "Pakistan Zindabad" slogans in the House and will not take back my words", adding, "such things keep happening".

Muhammad Akbar Lone talking to mediamen said that he was a Muslim first and his sentiments were hurt when the BJP MLAs were shouting anti-Pakistan slogans.

A fresh controversy was stirred by a National Conference (NC) leader after he shouted pro-Pakistan slogans in the Kashmiri Legislative Assembly on Saturday.
