Stop lying to world community: Er Rasheed to GOI


SRINAGAR: AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed today asked New Delhi to stop lying world community by misinterpreting whatsoever is happening in the streets of Kashmir.

In a statement issued here, Rasheed said that New Delhi starts talking about Kashmir only when situations take ugly turn but once things returned to so called normalcy, New Delhi shamelessly starts celebrating its failures.

He said, “While from US State Department to UN Secretary General everybody is showing its concern and seeks peaceful resolution to the Kashmir dispute, New Delhi is busy in finding excuses to justify its terror on streets of Kashmir.”

Adding, it is unfortunate that not only PM Narendra Modi but all political parties including Congress, are running away from the problem and are not only trying to present J&K issue as a law and order problem but are busy in scoring political points over each other.

“However they know better, whether it is armed struggle of 1989, Amarnath land row of 2008, situation after the rape and murder of Asia and Neelofar in 2009, unrest of 2010 or now the killing of Burhan Wani and other incidents from time to time, all these incidents do just act like triggers to give an outburst to the anti-India and pro-Aazadi sentiments among masses,” he said.

Er Rasheed said that rather blaming Pakistan, GOI should understand that world community doesn’t need India’s or Pakistan’s permission to speak for the sufferings of Kashmiri people and sooner or later world community will have to force and facilitate a peaceful settlement. Er Rasheed added that Indian leaders have lost moral ground to appeal for calm in Kashmir, as they have not been only running away from UN Resolutions but have used Shimla and Tashkent Agreements always to buy time and bury the real issue.

Er Rasheed said, “Before discussing Kashmir in close door, power corridors, GOI should tender unconditional and sincere apology from Kashmiris for eroding the very basics of conditional Instrument of Accession, creating a record in making false promises to resolve dispute, adding salt to the injuries of Kashmiris by appointing interlocutors in 2010, establishing Kashmir committees and opening various retail shops to weaken the justified resistance movement of Kashmiris.”

Er Rasheed lashed out at Indian media and accused them of misleading the country and destroying the facts vis-a-vis Kashmir.

He added that the media trials of whatsoever is happening in Kashmir may intensify the race between many TV Channels of being more loyal to so called national interest but it is definitely creating more hatred towards Indian state, its institutions and the media among Kashmiri masses. (PTK)
