Says Mainstream parties have let down masses
Kupwara : Condemning killing of civilians including a 16 year girl in Hawoora area of Radhwani at the hands of Army, AIP President Er. Rasheed has said that the killings have exposed the intentions of security forces and that of Governor Administration.
In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed appealed New Delhi to introspect and revisit its aggressive policies and realize that all the policies of controlling Kashmiris with barrel of gun have miserably failed during past thirty years. He said “Unless New Delhi doesn’t fulfill its responsibilities towards Kashmir dispute, situation will continue to be as it is and we will go on losing precious human lives.
He asked Army authorities not to justify the killings and said that black sheep in army don’t allow any opportunity to Kashmiris as they get praises from radical elements and a large section of biased ultranationalist media”. He added that Kashmiris have been left with no option but to continue their efforts seeking right to self determination.
Er. Rasheed added that while army and other security agencies have been given free hand the main stream political parties have mostly preferred to confine their role to finding space in changing political scenarios from time to time. He said “The apologetic attitude of main stream politicians has encouraged all those elements to whom human lives don’t matter.
Let the main stream parties show some shame and take a stand over use of disproportionate force being used against those unarmed civilians, who have voted MLA’s to at least speak about their fundamental rights especially right to live with honor and dignity. Er. Rasheed appealed army chief to punish those who blood bathed Hawoora and said that it is high time for top army high brasses to introspect and find answers why do their top claims of showing restrain fall flat after every assurance.
