    We don't know whether Kashmir is part of India: Azam Khan

    Samajwadi Party's (SP) firebrand leader Azam Khan stirred a controversy by raising question on whether Kashmir Valley is a part of India.

    Khan, who recently made an emotional comeback to the party, has put SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav into an embarrassing situation after his public statement in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun district on the Kashmir issue.

    Khan said there was only one Muslim Cabinet minister in the UPA government - Ghulam Nabi Azad. He insisted that Azad was from Kashmir Valley and "not India" as there was a dispute whether it was a part of India at all.

    "Only one Muslim minister is there in the (Union) Cabinet and that too not from India, but from Kashmir. That Kashmir, which is still controversial and we don't know whether that is part of India or not...," Khan said.

    Khan's statement was read as anti-national. The BJP immediately reacted by saying that people like Khan who had doubts over Kashmir Valley being a part of India had no business staying in the country.

    The SP leader's remark could be seen as playing to the galleries that the UPA government was not fair to the minority community. But the Kashmir remark could raise a lot of heat and put the leader in a spot of bother.

    Is Kashmir a part of India, asks SP leader Azam Khan

    LUCKONW: Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan, who rejoined the party recently, has stoked a controversy when he questioned whether Kashmir was part of India after he said there is only one Muslim minister in the Union Cabinet who is not from this country but who is from Kashmir.

    At a public meeting in Badaun, about 250 km from here, on Tuesday night, Khan said that Ghulam Nabi Azad is the lone Muslim cabinet minister in the UPA government but he is a "Kashmiri."

    "Only one Muslim minister (Azad) is there in the (Union) Cabinet and that too not of India, but from Kashmir. That Kashmir, which is still controversial and we don't know whether that is part of India or not...," Khan said in remarks that could embarrass the SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.

    Khan made a reference to Azad while hitting out at the Congress for not being serious about the interests of minorities citing that the UPA government had only one Muslim in the cabinet.

    The Congress condemned Khan's remarks as "most unfortunate" while BJP dubbed them as "irresponsible." There was also a demand that Khan be booked on charges of treason.

    "There is a practice of issuing irresponsible statements to remain in news and Azam Khan's statement in Badaun that Ghulam Nabi Azad is not from India but from Kashmir which is not clear whether it is in India or Pakistan is another such example," BJP spokesman Vijay Pathak said.

    Earlier it was Congress leader, Digvijay Singh who made a controversial statement harming national interest and now it is Azam Khan who is doing the same and a treason case should be filed against him, Pathak said.

    Congress spokesman Subodh Srivasatava while terming the statement as most unfortunate both for the SP and Khan said that the former would have to think whether it has done the right thing by taking him back in the party.

    "It is most unfortunate that leaders such as Khan are in the forefront of Muslim politics and the SP would have to think whether it has done the right thing in taking him back ", Srivasatav said adding that they should introspect whether such statments are in the interest of the nation or not.

    Moreover, Khan's statement is also wrong factually as there are several Muslim leaders in the UPA government other than Ghulam Nabi Azad, Srivastava added.

    Defending Khan, Samajwadi Party spokesman, Rajendra Chaudhary said the statement should be understood in the context it was issued.

    "Khan spoke with regard to the problem of Kashmir which is the outcome of Congress policies and it should not be read out of context", Chaudhary said adding that there should not be any doubt in anyone's mind over Khan's patriotism.

    Azam Khan is known for his critical political statements in the past and had even landed in a problem for his remarks on the Ambedkar Memorial in Lucknow and calling Bharat Mata as 'demon'.

    He is just trying to get back his lost hold on Muslims and people feel this is the way to do it. Create some controversy.

    It's not his fault. He never went to school. so never studied. Iam sure he does not know who was India's first prime minister or national anthem or national song.

    I have said this many times before, and I will say it again:

    Who is promoting the Indian cause in Kashmir valley? Pro-Pakistan leader? Check. Separatist leader? Check. Pro India leader? Absent.

    What about the mosques? What are the mullahs preaching? Fundamentalism. Paranoia. Bigotry. Backwardness.

    He should ask himself much simpler question - "Am I an Indian?" and then he should ask much larger questions that his infantile brain can grasp. Day by day, we are seeing more and more losers getting attention. These people should be ignored by the media.

    While such and similar howlers coming from several political leaders from staunch secular parties might be dismissed as election gimmicks intended to pander to the Muslim sentiments,this should worry all indian esp the Muslims,whether based on fact or not there appears to be a strongly held belief among parties with strong pro Muslim dispensation that such talk finds favor with the Muslim masses(the erudite among the Muslims might dismiss it)........I dont see any reason why battle hardened political veterans risk indulge in such 'loose' talks if they indeed consider them 'loose'

    Khan is an idiot no doubt but I blame successful indian govt for making Indians on the other side of the border who are also clamoring for indian support esp from the people in gilgit baltistan who are fighting the forced takeover of their land, feel let down. Indian govt has always reacted to pak agenda of talking only about the kashmir that is with india and never talked about what pak holds. Why has india never forcefully talked about that land?
    The way successive indian govt has handled the kashmir issue and I talk about it in its entirety, they would feel of step motherly treatment and give people like azam Khan a reason to talk negatively about it.

    Indian muslims and I talk about those outside Kashmir don't care shit about muslims in kashmir. It has no impact on electoral politics. Khans statement is of an ignorant idiot.

    We the people of INDIA make any comments publicly then we would be arrested for anti-government speech or speech of hatred. This is what GoI is all about. But they do not react to these statements............

    Here's the solution:

    1. Put Azam Khan in a dustbin.
    2. Take that dustbin to the 'Line of Control'.
    3. Empty the contents on the Line of Control.
    4. Shoot bullets at his feet until he starts to dance like a turkey.
    5. Problem solved. Replacement found for the 'Indo-Pak border rivalry' huff-puff.
    6. When he's done, shoot him in the head.
