SRINAGAR: Awami Itihad Party (AIP) president and MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Wednesday said the “propaganda” against pro-resistance leadership needs to be resisted in all forms as Hurriyat represents the sacrifices, sentiments and aspirations of Kashmiris.
He, however, said Hurriyat leadership “must not say any such thing that could bail out (prime minister) Narendra Modi and dilute the Kashmir cause”.
Rasheed, as per statement, was addressing a public gathering at Kralpora, Kupwara. He said Kashmiris have offered huge sacrifices for “nothing less than right to self determination” and that
Commenting over Modi’s remarks on Kashmir in his Independence Day speech, the MLA Langate said the prime minister had “nothing to offer but wants to add to the confusion”.
Rasheed accused mainstream parties of trying to find political dividends at the cost of diluting the real sentiments and aspirations of Kashmiris. He said sacrifices given by people of border district Kupwara are matchless and “it is for them to protect these sacrifices and not allow anybody to bailout New Delhi without giving Kashmiris all that what they deserve”.
