Credited with scripting a ‘Self Rule’ request of a Peoples Democratic Party, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, Lok Sabha member from Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla and a state’s former emissary arch minister, now finds himself left out of a domestic routine of a state. In an disdainful talk with Firstpost’s Sameer Yasir, Baig speaks about a domestic viability of a PDP-BJP alliance, rising dogmatism opposite a nation and PDP boss Mehbooba Mufti’s prospects of apropos Jammu and Kashmir chief minister.
Firstpost: You wrote a minute to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed arguing that a PDP-BJP bloc supervision examination has unsuccessful and there is a need for march correction. You have also voiced concerns over rising dogmatism in India after a BJP shaped supervision during a Centre. Has India turn an vulnerable place for Muslims?
Muzaffar Hussain Baig: Muslims have been vulnerable for utterly sometime. If a cricket compare in being watched in a university or college and if a Kashmiri happens to be applauding for an Indian player, that is fine. But if they hearten for a Pakistani, it is not tolerated. It is not supposed as appreciation by a witness of skills or cunning of a actor though an countenance of profanation of a thought of India. In that way, Muslim students have been subjected to clarity of distrust and unwantedness in mainland India.
If Kashmiri Muslims are feeling uncertain in a state they are in majority, how can they feel protected in a place where a male is killed for eating beef? It is not one particular murdering another, though a multitude removing mobilised into a act.
FP: Do we consider a BJP suffered in Bihar due to a politics of community polarization? In Jammu and Kashmir, we have an fondness with a BJP. Do we consider a PDP will politically humour in destiny as well?
MHB: If there is no march correction, if there is no revisiting a purpose and a basement of this alliance, afterwards we am fearful a PDP will be reduced to a non-entity in future.
FP: You were a initial personality in a PDP to publicly disciple an fondness with a BJP. Do we consider your open invitation to a BJP was right, given how things have transpired in Jammu and Kashmir?
MHB: we was invited to accommodate a Prime Minister in 2014. we found him a pointy and intelligent man. we wrote a minute to Mufti (Mohammad Sayeed) sahib (CM) that it is an chronological event if a PDP forms a supervision with a BJP. Here was a hardliner Hindu personality who has got a mandate; he won’t be theme to a same kind of critique that a Congress personality or Communist personality would be. If he extends a palm of team-work in good faith and tries to build, not only a bridge, though a common belligerent between several communities in JK, if he does that, he will not face inauspicious open reaction.
