Srinagar:Asking J&K Police to behave differently from army and CRPF, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has expressed his deep anger and anguish over the use of force against protestors in Langate and Kralgund areas yesterday.
In a statement issued today Er Rasheed said, “Police force need not to forget that they have to live and die with the same society, they are in confrontation on streets of Kashmir and must understand that it is not a law and order problem. Every policeman must be feeling from core of his heart that Kashmiris are not fighting their individual rights.
It is high time when every jawan and officer of J&K police should revisit his behaviour while dealing with his own people and must not lose his cool under worst circumstances and should not forget that in every area their own family members and beloved children are leading or participating the protests, as such no Kashmiri can afford isolating their own fellow citizens wearing uniform.”
Er Rasheed further added he will ensure that the damage caused to shops and other establishments in Langate and Kralgund areas will be compensated and said we will not beg before the atrocious and insensitive government to compensate the losses.
Meanwhile Er Rasheed has accused Mehbooba Mufti of adding salt to the injuries by claiming in New Dehli that situation was improving in J&K. Er Rasheed said, “It is unfortunate that rather than protesting before New Dehli for its colonial attitude, CM is sending signals as if she is like a rubber stamp.
Unless so called mainstream parties especially Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah do not rise to the occasion, New Dehli will continue misleading people within and outside India. Let Mehbooba explain how has situation improved if most of the Kashmir is under strict curfew and lacs of people are taking to streets against India’s occupation and added that her claims speak of a colonial slavery mindset.” Er Rasheed added that mainstream is not only cheating and letting down its own people but is losing relevance due to lack of will and sincerity.
