Srinagar: Langate legislator and Awami Ittihad Party chief Engineer Rasheed on Thursday criticized the government for showing hostile approach towards the minorities and downtrodden sections of the society.
Rasheed, while demanding the justice for Jasjeet Singh, who was shot dead in police shootout last year on June 4, when he was participating in a march to commemorate the desecration of Darbar Sahab in Amritsar said that their family is waiting for justice.
Rasheed reiterated that Indian state is being controlled by few Hindu fanatics and zealots, who are crushing minorities and depriving them constantly from their political and genuine human rights.
Interacting with the family members of the slain youth Rasheed expressed his anguish over government for shielding the culprits involved in the heinous crime and demanded the justice.
He said there was little hope of getting justice in the present circumstances “but still we have no option left other than to fight to bring the killers fore.”
“Shameless state has been doing nothing to stop the humanity from bleeding,” he said.
