RTI Movement Presses for Bringing Afzal’s Body Back
SRINAGAR: The J&K Right to Information (RTI) Movement has demanded that the body of Mohammad Afzal Guroo should be brought back to Kashmir.
In a statement the spokesman of RTI movement quoting Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat said that ‘it was tragic to hear that sad news about the execution of Mohammad Afzal Guroo in Tihar jail . He said that it was clear now that New Delhi hardly cares for the sentiments of Kashmiris and the so called Indias national Interests are much more important than Kashmir for them.
Dr Muzaffar added that the Hindu vote bank was drifting away from Congress due to emergence of Narinder Modi. So in order to consolidate that vote bank Afzal Guru was finally sent to gallows just before the upcoming general elections, he added.
Meanwhile general secretary of RTI Movement M Ramzan Khan welcomed Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat who has rejoined J&K RTI Movement after resigning from the mainstream politics on Feb 9th in protest against hanging of Mohammad Afzal Guru.
Khan said that Dr Muzaffar could better serve people of state through his activism and social work and the activists of RTI Movement had been missing his leadership and style of working since he had joined politics 5 months back.
