“The plight of all Kashmiris, regardless of their religion was miserable, which forced Sheikh Sahib to dissolve Muslim Conference and form a secular party National Conference instead,” he said.
“How have we become communal now, when history is witness to our secular character?” he added.
He said that National Conference does not believe in communal politics, it is BJP and RSS, which is playing communal politics and one day, they will be marooned in their divisive politics.
