The Congress on 19 August said people like Mirwaiz Umar Farooq are worsening situation in Kashmir Valley.
The Congress' reaction is on Mirwaiz's allegation that "each day young educated boys are being killed in Kashmir and there is a belief in some that once all of them are killed, the Kashmir problem will be over".
Congress leader P.C. Chacko said that people like Mirwaiz are worsening the situation in Kashmir.
"We have to see from where the provocation is coming? Mirwaiz should answer that also. People like Mirwaiz provoke people to attack the armed forces or take an anti-India position. These people are worsening the situation," Chacko said.
Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit said that anybody who will challenge the law or the constitution of the country will face equivalent consequences.
"Whenever a militant will stand up against the nation we will crush him. It is obvious that if a person challenges law and the Constitution of India then action needs to be taken against them. It is obvious if anybody will stand against the nation our security forces will combat and curb that force," said Dikshit.
