Police today barred AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed from visiting Chairman APHC (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s residence. Rasheed was supposed to attend a scheduled meeting with Hurriyat Chairman.
According to a statement issued by AIP, a police party stopped Er Rasheed from entering the residence of Mirwaiz as soon as Er Rashid reached Nageen Hazratbal.
The statement said that the concerned police official used foul language and also snatched cell phones from Er. Rasheed and his associates.
Meanwhile, Er. Rasheed while congratulating people of India on eve of their independence day has asked why Kashmiris should be forced to hoist tri colour on eve of 15th August every year.
“J&K never got freedom on 15th August 1947 but in fact just 72 days after India won freedom. New Delhi by its military might snatched freedom of Kashmiris and has failed to full fill its promises of giving Kashmiris Right to Self Determination,” Er. Rasheed said.
Er. Rasheed added that 15th August has also lost its relevance due to the fact that New Delhi is using its institutions to humiliate and snatch the rights from people of Jammu & Kashmir.
“Calling J&K its integral part but dragging the provisions granting J&K Special Status to Supreme Court has shaken the faith of those few people who believed in being part of India,” he added.
He said that Kashmiris have enough reasons to celebrate 15th August as a Black Day. He said that Mehbooba Mufti or anyone else has no right whatsoever to hoist tri colour at any place in the state.
He added that AIP will observe India’s Independence Day as a Black Day and will hoist a black flag at Bakhshi Stadium to tell the common masses of India that J&K is a disputed territory.
