Condemning the NIA raids on pro-resistance leaders and few prominent businessmen, AIP supremo and MLA Langate, Er Rasheed, on Saturday, said that all such moves are aimed at making Kashmiris surrender their rights.
However, Centre needs to learn that Kashmiris want to resolve the Kashmir dispute and would never compromise their sentiments and aspirations.
While interacting with people in Handwara, Rasheed said, “Centre seems to have used all options against the mass resistance in Kashmir but have failed to break the will of Kashmiris. It should not forget that Hurriyat leaders are not being respected and supported for their personal profiles but because they represent the sentiments and sacrifices of people.”
Er Rasheed added that if NIA is interested in bringing out the facts in the state, then it must investigate hundreds of custodial killings, blinding Kashmiri children, forced labour to which residents of border and remote areas were subjected to, huge assets created by a section of mainstream politicians, policemen and bureaucrats and fake encounters.
