Srinagar: Langate legislator and Awami Ittihad Party chief Sheikh Abdur Rashid has condemned the latest killing of Musaib Mujeeb and Naseer Ahmad and accused Indian Prime minister Narender Modi of promising laptops (to Kashmir youth) but by conduct silencing the youth with shells and bullets.
In a statement Rashid said the “state terrorism is at its worst” and security agencies have been given a free hand to kill Kashmiris, especially by targeting youth and teenagers. “There is no justification to the killing of 17-year Musaib Majeed and the fact is that CRPF posted in Agriculture College, Wadoora Sopore had been sending stern warnings in the areas surrounding the camp and were just in search of an excuse to do the untoward incident,” he said.
He said there were umpteen instances when security agencies have crossed all the limits and provoked mobs for stone pelting, so that their quest for sucking blood of Kashmiri youth could be fulfilled. Musaib’s murder should be eye opener for those who were giving overdue publicity to Modi’s sermon of giving laptop to Kashmiri students but Modi’s tall claims have been exposed as the vicious operation to target youth gained momentum immediately after his sermon, as if he was using code language by saying laptop but meaning bullets.
Can anyone justify the killing by saying that Musaib had been doing stone pelting for money, as his academic record is so meritorious that he would have been one among the shining stars of Kashmir but Modi’s laptop shaped bullet silenced him once for all”. Er Rashid warned authorities of dire consequences if personnel of CRPF camp at Wadoora don’t mend their ways. He asked Sopore police to lodge FIR against the culprits or be prepared to face the public resentment. Er Rashid also condemned use of force to disperse Itihaad e Millat Conference in Supernaghama and ransacking the houses in the area. Er Rashid said that such actions have exposed the govt claims of allowing peaceful protests.
