Taliban supporters demand secularism where Muslims are minorities, while they want Islamic laws where Muslims are the majority ! – BJP
The BJP has criticised Abdullah’s remarks. Nirmal Singh, former Deputy CM of Jammu and Kashmir and BJP leader, said that while women and minorities were being persecuted by the Taliban, Abdullah is seen extending support to the Taliban. In countries where Muslims are a minority, Abdullah wants secularism, and where Muslims are in the majority, he wants Islamic laws.
