Aurangzeb, the martyred soldier’s father from Jammu and Kashmir has joined the BJP. Mohammed Haneef decided to join the Jammu and Kashmir unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
He is likely to join the saffron party in presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his rally in Jammu’s Samba district on Sunday February 1.
44-year-old Aurangzeb, of Rashtriya Rifles, was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists last year in June. The incident took place when he was on his way back home for Eid with his family in Poonch.
His body was found in Gusoo village in Pulwama district.
Aurangzeb’s assassination triggered massive outrage across the country.
Mohammed Haneef, who’s himself an ex-armyman, said that he was impressed with PM Modi’s policies for the poor.
“PM Modi has worked for the welfare of the poor. I want to join the BJP so that we can throw the terrorists out of India. I will take the membership of the BJP on February 3 in the presence of PM Modi. Till the time Kashmir-based politicians are at the helm in the state, the terrorism can’t be eradicated. Only PM Modi can solve the problems in Jammu and Kashmir. We are Indians, there shouldn’t be any talks with Pakistan,” said Aurangzeb’s father.
PM Modi is visiting Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday to inaugurate several developmental projects in the state. He will also address a massive public rally in Samba district.
Meanwhile, the BJP has welcomed Mohammed Haneef’s decision. The party said that his joining BJP is a big slap on the face of terrorists in Kashmir.
“I want to salute martyr Aurangzeb and his father. He has taken a very bold decision. His decision to join the BJP will boost the morale of nationalist forces. I appreciate his decision,” said Kavinder Gupta, senior BJP leader and former J&K Deputy CM of J&K.
