Mehbooba terms NIA action against Aga as witch-hunt


SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday expressed disappointment over summoning of revered Shia cleric Aga Syed Hassan Al Mousvi by the NIA.
In a statement, the PDP chief stated that it is high time that Government of India sees the futility of its muscular policies and not to treat every body as a criminal in Kashmir. She added that Aga Syed Hassan is a respected and revered religious leader and that it is disappointing that NIA  is now busy issuing summons to the people of moral courage and mental caliber.
A Srinagar based news agency reported Mehbooba Mufti saying, “The entire process now looks nothing less than a witch hunt and such steps instead of helping to find solution to the problems confronting the state, will further complicate the situation.”
