Not only seven Yatris but one Lac Kashmiris have been killed: Er Rasheed


    SRINAGAR : Reiterating conducting a credible probe into attack on Amarnath Yatris AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has apprehended that security agencies may in coming days claim to have identified or eliminated the attackers by making someone a scapegoat.

    In a statement issued today Er Rasheed said that Kashmiris need not to be apologetic as they are neither involved in the incident nor can they stop such brutal tragedies.

    In a statement issued today he said, “Mehbooba Mufti, Omer Abdullah and others have been constantly claiming that their heads lie in shame over the incident but may they answer what is the fault of Kashmiris so that they need to have their heads in shame.

    He said that such apologetic and appeasing statements give an impression as if every Kashmiris is holding a gun in his hands and has no business but to kill Yatris. Let world understand that it is not only seven yatris who lost their lives in Kashmir but more than one Lac Kashmiris have been buried in graveyards and nobody cares for them.

    “It is duty and right of Prime Minister Narendera Modi to condemn the killings of Yatris through tweet but why didn’t he spoke even a single world when innocent Kashmiris are butchered on daily basis. Kashmiris have a right to ask Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti that while they are rightly finding no logic in killing Yatris, why have they been finding always an excuse when Kashmiris get butchered”, he said.

    He said that Mehbooba Mufti has done a good thing by spending whole night with the injured Yatris but may she answer why does she blame innocent Kashmiris when they get killed.

    Er Rasheed added that Kashmiris are not adverse to providing six lac rupees compensation to families of Yatris but why has not been even a penny paid to more than hundred innocents killed during last one year and why don’t their families deserve same sympathy.

    Er Rasheed added that government must come clean on what was the reason behind Yatris being forced to hoist tricolour at Phalgham, as it seems just an act of provocation. Accusing that forces have been given license to kill Kashmiris Er Rasheed added that the recent so called encounter at Beerwah in which three youth were killed is ample proof to conclude that security forces leave no chance to kill Kashmiris.

    He said, “if Government itself claims the three militants had just a pistol and a SLR rifle with them and there was no collateral damage, forces could have trapped all the three alive, rather celebrating their brutal murder. Let nobody forget that like Zubair Turray and Bashir Lashker, Sajad Ahmad Gilkar of Nauhatta had also joined militancy as a result of police atrocities.

    Er Rasheed asked for time bound credible probe of attack on Yatra and cautioned government not to make attack on Yatris another mystery like that of Chattisinghpora.
