Links Parrikar’s ‘Ikhwanis’ remark with Sopore attacks
Omar Abdullah sought to link the spate of terror attacks in Sopore area with Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s alleged remark about revival of ‘Ikhwanis’, an outfit of reformed militants in the State.
“The Defence Minister says that militants will be used for killing militants here. What does it mean? That they will give a rebirth to Ikhwaan (government-sponsored gunmen). Since his (Parrikar’s) statement came, see the situation in Sopore. Someone is being killed there regularly. This is because of this government,” Omar said addressing a rally here.
