Stand on beef by three Chief Ministers vindicated my Stand : Rashid
Srinagar: Independent MLA Engineer Rashid Friday welcomed the stand taken by Karnataka, Kerala and West Bengal Chief Ministers over beef issue and termed it as a slap on the face of Mufti led PDP govt.
Addressing a gathering at Dangiwacha Rafiabad today, Er Rasheed said that though we need no permission from anyone what to eat and what not, but the stand taken by three chief ministers justifying beef parties and sale of beef have endorsed that we have done nothing wrong or illegal while holding beef party in MLA Hostel in Srinagar. Er Rashid said Despite heading the hindu dominated states, the stand taken by these chief ministers is encouraging and Mufti needs to learn a lesson from his counter parts and understand that Sangh Parivar is firing the bullets from his shoulders. Mufti Sb is playing time and again in the hands of these anti muslims forces that is why he compels police officers and Jawans to cross all limits of brutality while dealing with peaceful protests in Kashmir. He added may Mufti explain if RSS goons led by Speaker and other MLAs are at liberty to display guns and swords in Jammu during unlawful processions, just to harass Muslims in Jammu , why cant Kashmiris participate in last rites of a militant.
Er Rashid said Mufti Sb has to be responsible for every atrocity on Kashmiri youth and needs to understand that he cannot justify the atrocities by police and paramilitary forces in Kulgam, Shopian, Pulwama and Islamabad. Mufti and Delhi are ruling through barrel of the gun but not hearts and minds of Kashmiris . It would have been appropriate for him and his masters in New Delhi to coolly introspect that while all his cabinet colleagues are begging door to door and pressuring govt. employees to ensure participation in Modis proposed public meet in Srinagar, what forces thousands to pay homage to Abu Qasim whom State calls a terrorist and why do masses of three districts claim vigorously for the body of slain militant, despite the fact that he was a non Kashmiri.
