Let me tell you, Asifa was raped because of her Muslim identity. The communal section of Jammu raped the Muslim nomad girl because they wanted to push out Muslims from Jammu. It was all planned. I feel pity on those politicians who issue statements on a daily basis, but are mum from last three months,” EJAC president said.The protesters alleged that the government’s intention to shield the culprits became clear when law abiding agencies, lawyers and coalition ministers took sides in this case.“Two BJP ministers took part in Hindu Ekta Manch protests in favor of culprits and Mehbooba government woke up after three months. This is utter shame and failure on behalf of Mehbooba government,” a protesting student said.
