New Delhi, June 3 (IANS) BJP’s newly elected parliamentarian Gautam Gambhir on Monday took to Twitter to criticise former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for attacking Home Minister Amit Shah.

Mufti criticised Shah for expecting a “quick fix” to the Kashmir issue.

“While I am all for a talk-based solution to Kashmir problem but for Mehbooba Mufti to term Amit Shah’s process as ‘brute’ is ‘ridiculously naive’. History has been witness to our patience and endurance. But if oppression ensures security for my people, then so be it,” Gambhir tweeted.

Mufti on Monday called for a political solution of the Kashmir issue by involving all “stakeholders”.

“Since 1947, Kashmir’s been looked through the prism of security by successive governments. It’s a political problem that needs a political redress by involving all stakeholders including Pakistan. Expecting a quick fix through brute force by newly appointed HM (Home Minister Amit Shah) is ridiculously naive,” she said.
