Jammu: MLA Langate, Er. Rasheed Saturday blasted Indian state for forcing main stream parties especially NC and PDP to act like “extension wings” and collaborators of “Indian colonial occupation” and added that struggle of Kashmiri nation is not for revoking AFSPA, PSA banning pallet guns, restoration of Autonomy but purely a movement for right to self determination.
In his hard hitting in the legislative assembly Rasheed said that people of the state were expecting a Razia Sultana in Mehbooba Mufti but “Nagpur drew her other way”.
While appreciating Mehbooba for showing deep love for her 82 year old father, Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Rasheed asked her that what she has to parents of those kids whom were forced to shoulder coffins of their beloved kids.
Rasheed said, “While people are talking about so called special status, no state flag flies over State High Court, Kashmir House and other prestigious places despite the fact the High Court Judges take oath under State constitution. If New Delhi couldn’t respect sentiments of iron lady of Munipur Arim Sharmeela, why should we beg for revocation of AFSPA. In fact we will never demand revoking AFSPA and PSA as world must know India has failed to win hearts and minds of people of J&K and is ruling the state through these dirty laws and at the barrel of gun. We would not seek Judicial probes and enquiry commissions as they have yielded nothing and we know well those who seek right to self determination have to face this all. A place where police, Army and other security agencies do celebrate deaths of humans expecting to get promotions and privileges, should not expect justice and seek fundamental rights”.
