Kathua Rape and Murder Case echoed in United Nations

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti

Besides, all the district units of the party all over the state shall similar candle-lit marches to protest against the rape incident of an 8-year-old nomadic girl in Jammu & Kashmir's Kathua and a young girl in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao which have shaken the country.

Ganga on Saturday claimed at a press conference in Jammu that the BJP had sent him and Lal Singh to the rally, Times Now reported.

Confirming the reports of their resignation, BJP's state chief spokesperson Sunil Sethi said, "It is a simple resignation letter, but they have done it to save party from the adverse publicity going on in the media about their publicly supporting the Hindu Ekta Manch who have been demanding shifting of investigations into the girl's rape and murder case from state's Crime Branch to CBI".

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav flew to Jammu on Saturday morning and held consultations with senior party leaders as well as MLAs and MLCs to discuss the situation in the state.

He denied that the People's Democratic Party, which is the BJP's alliance partner in the Jammu and Kashmir government, had threatened to withdraw support if the ministers did not resign. "Therefore, keeping in mind the perception and general situation, the two BJP leaders, after holding consultations with the prime minister and other senior leaders of the party, made a decision to submit their resignations". "Intolerance and hate are hitting at the country's core values and posing a great threat to the pluralism, the only option for achieving the goals India has set out", she said and added that India comprises a composite culture and no one has domination in it.


The chief minister said that she was in constant touch with BJP president Amit Shah and Madhav as well as Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

"We appreciate our alliance partner who helped us in this case". "I want to thank people of Jammu for standing united against the gory crime", she said.

Immediately after the meeting, Madhav told reporters that the resignations of the two ministers - Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga - would be handed over to the Chief Minister for further action.

The little girl went missing on January 10 and a week later, her body, bearing torture marks and signs of sexual abuse, was recovered on 17 January.

He cautioned that there should be no communal politics played over the ghastly crime and everyone should ensure speedy justice and exemplary punishment to the culprits.
