SRINAGAR : Condemning use of force at protesters resulting in death of 24 year old Ruby Jan wife of Manzoor Ahmad and injuring many at Batmurren Shopian, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that main stream politicians need to discharge their duties without acting like collaborators before it is further late.
In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “While pro-resistance leadership gets often caged and main stream parties just make cosmetic condemnations and hue and cry, it seems yet again that security forces are at liberty to do what they want. The main stream parties though have always sided themselves with those who deprive Kashmiris of their fundamental political rights, but now they must feel some pain of their people and get united to take a firm and stern stand to stop terrible human rights violations in Kashmir”.
Er. Rasheed said unless main stream parties don’t believe in what they say, nobody is going to take them serious and their hue and cry over killings and other violations will suit New Delhi not Kashmiris, as their appeasing and apologetic words are enough to mislead the world community. It makes no sense, rather looks laughable, when NC on occasions condemns the killings as people rightly conclude that NC is doing the same what Mehbooba Mufti used to do when people used to get butchered at the hands of Omer Abdullah during his regime. If both the main regional parties sincerely believe Kashmiris have a right to live with honour and dignity and a resolution to Kashmir dispute is possible within ambits of Indian constitution, whose hidden hands stop them from joining hands with each other, rather becoming extension wings of congress and BJP from time to time.
It is high time when Omer Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti need to realize their worth and must close their retail shops to get united and smaller such forces who believe a resolution within Indian constitution is possible may follow them. Unless the two parties don’t realize the urgency of their joining hands Kashmiris will continue to get bathed with blood”.
