Condemning National Investigating Agency (NIA) raids on pro-resistance leaders and prominent businessmen, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed today said that all such moves are aimed at making Kashmiris to shut their mouth and surrender their rights.
In a statement issued to the press, Er Rasheed said that New Delhi needs to learn that whatsoever is happening in Kashmir is not creation of any individual, organization or some agency but every Kashmiri realizes the significance of resolving Kashmir dispute.
He said that Kashmiriris would never compromise their sentiments and aspirations.
“New Delhi seems to have used all options against the mass resistance in Kashmir but after failing to break the will of Kashmiris, it has started a character assassination campaign against pro-resistance leadership but should not forget that Hurriyat leaders are not being respected and supported for their personal profiles but only because they are representing the sentiments and sacrifices of people.” Er Rasheed said.
He added that if NIA is really interested in bringing out the facts in J&K, then it must investigate hundreds of custodial killings, blinding Kashmiri children, forced labour to which residents of border and remote areas were subjected, huge assets created by a section of mainstream politicians, policemen and bureaucrats and fake encounters.
