Kashmir is a disputed territory, will fight for its resolution: Er Rashid

Srinagar: Independent legislator from Langate constituency Engineer Sheikh Abdur Rashid said today that Kashmir was a disputed territory and he will continue to fight for its resolution.

Rashid, who has faced a series of attacks from the BJP and rightwing activists in and outside the Valley, said that the pro-freedom leaders will fight for the resolution of Kashmir dispute in their way, and he will continue the struggle in his own way.

Replying to a question about his position on accepting Indian constitution, Rashid said that he accepts the constitution same way as India’s first Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru accepted British constitution.

He said that the resolution of Kashmir issue is imperative for India if it wants to become a super power.

When asked about his decision to withdraw case against the activists of fanatic outfit Hindu Sena who threw ink at him in New Delhi recently, the lawmaker said that he does not believe that Indian system would deliver justice.
