A Bharatiya Janata Party leader on Thursday claimed that there was a “Pakistani hand” behind the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district, PTI reported.
“The act must have been committed by Pakistan’s agents to divide people by chanting Jai Shri Ram,” Madhya Pradesh BJP President Nandkumar Singh Chouhan said during a fast observed by party leaders on Thursday.
There were reports that the rapists had shouted “Jai Shri Ram” after the incident. Chouhan claimed that since there were very few Hindus in Kashmir, they could not shout slogans such as “Jai Shri Ram” after raping a girl. “Hindus are less than 1% in Kashmir,” Chouhan said.
“They cannot even open their mouths, then how can they shout these slogans?”
