Offering funeral prayers in absentia no crime: Eng Rasheed

Srinagar: The Awami Ittehad Party (AIP) chief Eng Rasheed Friday slammed Aligarh Muslim University’s decision for suspending three Kashmiris students for organizing funeral prayers in absentia for slain Manan Wani, saying it is not a crime under any law.
“The decision has been made only under pressure from local BJP leaders,” the statement said.
While reacting to Mehbooba Mufti’s statement on Manan Wani’s killing, Rasheed appealed mainstream parties to show some consistency in their “designs” and not rub salt into the wounds of masses.
Rasheed said “Like everyone Mehbooba Mufti is free to express her views on all issues including death of Manan Wani but her changing stances from time to time have eroded her credibility and like NC leadership PDP too has proved again and again that except power the party has no other agenda”.
