SRINAGAR:MLA Langate Er Rashid Tuesday asked New Delhi to introspect its Kashmir policy and acknowledge the dispute of J&K.
Speaking at a condolence meet at Audoora Mawar while offering his condolence to the family of Tariq Ahmad Mir who had drowned yesterday at Sombal, Er Rashid said that it needs to be analysed and introspected that while army, police and other security organizations were celebrating the death of hardcore militant Tariq, common masses in general and people of Mawar area in particular in thousands were mourning the death of the militant and their faces were reflecting the love and faith for the slain militant.
Everybody has full right to differ with the ideology and style of operating of militants but the huge gap between the viewpoint of those celebrating death of a hardcore militant and those seeing him as a martyr needs to be understood. It is obvious that whosoever speaks for resolution of Kashmir issue touches heart and mind of majority of Kashmiris and GoI cannot simply run away from the facts by celebrating the deaths of militants. Whosoever speaks for the resolution of the Kashmir issue needs to understand fully that it is the militants who reminded Kashmiris of the broken promises of Indian leadership and not those who were one way or the other part of the same system which they are abusing now, Rashid said in a statement.
