Kerala Governor slams KT Jaleel over controversial statement on Kashmir

KT Jaleel

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan raised sharp criticism against LDF MLA and former minister KT Jaleel over his controversial statement on Kashmir. The Governor said that Jaleel’s statement surprised him and that it was unacceptable by all means.

‘I do not view the statements as coincidental or unexpected. It is not clear whether such a remark came after checking history or because of pure ignorance,’ the Governor said.

Meanwhile, Jaleel cancelled his events in New Delhi and returned to Kerala on Sunday morning after reports of probable protests against him.

Several people had come out against the Facebook post in which Jaleel used the terms "Azad Kashmir" and "India-occupied Kashmir."

Jaleel had later withdrawn his comments.
