AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed Friday strongly condemned atrocities and use of force against students in Sopore and masses in Shopian, Kulgam, Khudwani and other places.
In a statement issued today, Er. Rasheed said that New Delhi is leaving no stone unturned by indulging in false propaganda and character assassination of Kashmiris and their genuine leadership.
“Confirming death sentence to four accused in Nirbhaya rape and murder case has yet again raised questions that how Kashmiris are treated differently at the hands of Indian state. The same media and Indian intellectuals who are praising Supreme Court for the verdict, are all mum why couldn’t soldiers in uniform get same punishment for their similar shameless crime in Kunan Poshpora”, Er. Rasheed said.
He said that Indian state and its institutions were all in agreement to shield the Indian Army just assuming their act something unavoidable for the ‘national interest’.
“Those calling Kashmiri militants as terrorists should know that people don’t endanger their lives to save terrorists and break the army and police cordons, as happened in Khudwani and Shopian”, he said.
Rasheed said that those who accuse militants of looting banks is a senseless allegation.
“It is India that has been accusing Pakistan of funding stone palters. If the allegation is assumed to be true and Pakistan is providing funding to lacs of Kashmiri stone palters, why cannot Pakistan fund few hundred militants. Pseudo intellectuals abusing Kashmiris in air conditioner TV studios should answer why militants would defame themselves by indulging in activities like looting banks. If masses risk their lives for militants, they would offer huge money to militants if they desire so”, he said.
