Omar Abdullah accuses former Jammu and Kashmir CM Mehbooba Mufti of showing 'fake sympathy'

After former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti described slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Manan Wani a "victim of relentless violence", National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah Monday accused her of showing "fake sympathy", saying it worked in the past but would not work now. "How short Ms Mufti's memory is! She forgets that she was the architect & beneficiary (it kept her allies in good humour) for her entire period in office. She is in no position to criticise anyone for 'relentless violence'," he wrote on Twitter. 

Omar was responding to Mehbooba's tweets in which she called for withdrawal of cases against Kashmiri students studying in the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and described Wani as "a victim of relentless violence in Kashmir". "Pushing youth to the wall will be counter productive. Centre must intervene in withdrawing cases against students & AMU authorities must revoke their suspension. The respective State governments outside JK should be sensitive to the situation & prevent further alienation," Mehbooba had tweeted. 

"It will be a travesty to punish them for remembering their former colleague who was a victim of relentless violence in Kashmir," she said in another tweet. Omar said Mehbooba headed the Unified Command which "directed the security forces to execute 'Operation All-out' & she famously justified the killing of young protestors in 2016 saying 'they aren't coming out to buy milk or toffees',. "Ms Mufti's Govt (government) made every effort to trap & kill Manan Wani coming close a few times. Her fake sympathy & crocodile tears for dead Kashmiri militants worked for a few years, they won't work again," the NC leader added.
