New Delhi :  

National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday seconded Sonia Gandhi’s statement that there are sectarian forces in the country which aims to divide the nation further.

“Whatever Sonia said is right. There is no doubt that country is progressing but at the same time there is threat that the country is being divided,” said Farooq.

“How many more Pakistan will be created when one is already stabbing on our chest. Now, how many more divisions will be enforced on us?” said NC leader.

Earlier in the day, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi said that there is politics of divide and freedom of expression, civil justice are taking a back seat. She added that we can't and they won't allow sectarian forces to succeed.

"Today, it looks that divisive and communal sentiments are rising across the country, and secularism and free speech are in danger. Law and order forces have also not been able to control the communal forces," said Sonia.
