BJP Uneasy With JeI Due To Its Islamic Ideology: Mehbooba

SRINAGAR

Hitting out at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for his comment about Jamaat-e-Islami, former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti said BJP is uncomfortable with JeI, which has done great work in uplifting poor people, owing to its Islamic ideology.

Mehbooba, who is the president of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), said Jaitley would rather extend patronage to rabid right wing organisations that lynch innocents on flimsy excuses and spearhead a divisive agenda to persecute minorities.”Jamaat, an organisation that has done great work in upliftment of poor makes you uncomfortable owing to its Islamic ideology. You’d rather extend patronage to rabid right wing orgs that lynch innocents on flimsy excuses & spearhead a divisive agenda to persecute minorities,”Mehbooba wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
