Official suspended for Andrabi pic goof-up

Official suspended over Asiya Andrabi’s

Kashmiri separatist Asiya Andrabi has been featured in a Jammu and Kashmir government poster of 12 women achievers, juxtaposing the signature veiled photograph of the jailed separatist facing terror cases with pictures of Mother Teresa and the state's junior Health Minister Asiea Naqash.

The Child Development Project Officer (CDPO) of Anantnag's Breng block has been suspended after a banner on "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" campaign featured separatist leader Asiya Andrabi among the women achievers of the world.

The banner put the J&K government in huge embarrassment and Social Welfare Minister Sajad Lone had to clarify on Thursday that the radical Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief was not a role model for women in Jammu and Kashmir or elsewhere. Sajjad Lone distanced himself from the goof-up and tweeted that the publicity wing of the department works in decentralized format and CDPO's devise their own publicity campaign which does not require approval of higher authorities.

Andrabi, the pro-Pakistan chief of "Dukhtaran-e-Millat" (daughters of the nation) organisation is now in jail under Public Safety Act for her separatist activities.

"The CDPO has committed a grievous error of judgement by including Asiya Andrabi in the list of distinguished women achievers of the country", he said.

He regretted that while the daughter's of Jammu having won laurels at worldwide level including Shakti Sharma, Rachna Jamwal, Sana Dua, Anjusha Sharma, Tanya Gupta, Dr. Meenu Gupta were conveniently forgotten, a secessionist and Pak agent Asiya Andrabi was featured as role model for women thus projecting the real character of the BJP-PDP Govt. "She at best is an aberration, representing the aimless fringe afflicting societies across the world", he said.

The poster was displayed at an event organized in south Kashmir's Kokernag town to promote girls' education and was attended by lawmakers, ministers and top officials of the state.

India Today, on the other hand, reports that Shameema Akhter has been suspended with immediate effect in the matter.
