People have no option but to follow protest calendar: Rashid

SRINAGAR: Awami Itihad Party (AIP) president and MLA Langate Er Rashid on Monday said people have no option but to follow the protest calendars issued by the resistance leadership while asserting that granting Kashmiris the right to self-determination is the only way forward to establish peace.
As per a statement issued here, Rashid while addressing a public gathering at Qalamabad, Handwara, said New Delhi’s “arrogant” behaviour and its utterances have added to the anger among the people of Kashmir.
“It is ironical that despite loss of precious lives and continuous curfew in the entire valley, New Delhi is dictating terms to Kashmiris and in a way asking them to surrender by giving no signals to start a dialogue with resistance leadership,” he said.
He said Indian defence minister Manohar Parikar’s statement reveals his “sick mentality” “Let there be no doubt that Indian treats Kashmiris as its enemies; thus the defence minister crossed all levels of morality and decency,” he said, adding, “Such threats cannot demoralise Kashmiri masses.
