Mehbooba accused the government of India of spreading "fake propaganda" about Kashmiri mainstream and Muslims and holding them responsible for the exodus of Pandits from Kashmir. Mehbooba announced her "arrest" in a tweet, "Placed under house arrest today because I wanted to visit the family of the Kashmiri pandit attacked in Shopian. GOI wilfully spreads fake propaganda about Kashmiri mainstream & Muslims responsible for pandit exodus & doesn’t want this fake divisive narrative to be exposed."

Taking a veiled dig at the BJP, Mufti said, "Doesn’t take a genius to figure out who will benefit politically by deepening mistrust & sowing seeds of division & hatred." Pertinently, on April 4, unknown gunmen shot and injured a shopkeeper Sonu Kumar alias Balji in Chotipora village of Shopian. He was shifted to Army's Base Hospital where his condition is reported to be stable. Advertisement
