Anna in dissonance with Prashanth’s view on Kashmir

Anna HazareNew Delhi: Anti corruption crusader, Anna Hazare  stated that Kashmir is an integral part of India and that his views were in dissonance with that of his team mate Prashant Bhushan.

“My personal view is that Kashmir is an integral part of India. Prashant Bhushan’s views on Kashmir are wrong. We do not endorse Prashan Bhushan’s statement on Kashmir. I will tell Prashant Bhushan that if he is giving an opinion on a subject, he can give it in his personal capacity. If he is giving the team’s view, he should speak to the team before,” said Anna Hazare at a press conference held at Pune.

“We will decide if Bhushan would be part of Team Anna,” Anna Hazare added. Three men who claimed to have belonged to Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena had attacked Prashant Bhushan at his chamber. They were later arrested after police verification.These three people reportedly stormed into Mr Bhushan’s chamber in the Supreme Court and began beating him while he was in the midst of a TV interview. Mr Bhushan, was slapped, thrown onto the floor and kicked. He was reportedly attacked for making statements regarding holding referendum in Kashmir.

Bhushan’s comments has also been criticised by Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray. Thackeray supported the Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena members who attacked Bhushan. In an editorial in the Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamna’, Thakerey wrote that Bhushan’s attackers were not rogues or thieves but were genuinely angered by Bhushan’s comment on Kashmir and if their actions are widely criticised, so must be Bhushan’s statement.
