Jammu and Kashmir politician Shah Faesal put out a tweet yesterday saying that every Kashmiri is in mourning after the abrogation of Article 370.
“There is no Eid. Kashmiris across the world are mourning the illegal annexation of their land. There shall be no Eid till everything that has been stolen and snatched since 1947 is returned back. No Eid till the last bit of insult is avenged and undone,” the tweet read.
The tweet evoked diverse responses on social media. While some accused Faesal of provoking violence, others questioned whether his call to avenge every insult also includes the treatment meted out to the minority Kashmiri Pandit community.
“Why go back only to 1947 for returning everything stolen? Lets go back 1,000 years and have the invaders return all their loot & lands captured from kafirs, and have them go back to the desert tribes,” said Rajiv Malhotra in a tweet.
In another response Rev. Zenji Nio asked Faesal to also compensate for the hundreds of millions of “Buddhists and Hindus killed in the annexation of our Dharmic lands by Islamists in history's worst holocaust - and return all titles & interest to the rightful heirs of Asoka and Kanishka.”
