Former cricketer and BJP’s newly elected MP Gautam Gambhir and former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister and leader of Peoples Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti engaged in a Twitter spat again. This time, the war of words was over home minister Amit Shah.
Mufti, in a tweet, said the home minister was ridiculously naïve if he thought he could bring a solution to the Kashmir issue through a “quick fix” using “brute force”.
Since 1947, Kashmir’s been looked through the prism of security by successive governments. It’s a political problem that needs a political redressal by involving all stakeholders inc Pak.Expecting a quick fix through brute force by newly appointed HM is ridiculously naive— Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) June 3, 2019
Reacting to this, Gambhir, tagging Mufti, tweeted to term Amit Shah’s “process” (for a solution to Kashmir) as “brute” is “ridiculously naïve” and if “oppression ensures security for India”, it is acceptable.
While I am all for a talk-based solution to Kashmir problem but for @mehboobamufti to term Shri @AmitShah’s process as “brute” is “ridiculously naive”. History has been witness to our patience and endurance. But if oppression ensures security for my people, then so be it.— Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) June 3, 2019
Gambhir and Mufti had been in a Twitter spat earlier as well.
