Srinagar: AIP President and MLA Langate Engineer Rasheed while condemning the latest spree of killings in Budgam, Batmaloo and Dooru said that Narindra Modi’s speech from the Red Fort has proved a green signal for security forces to kill Kashmiris in cold blood.
In a statement today, he said every sensible citizen was expecting the prime minister to talk sense vis-a-vis Kashmir but his arrogance and hatred for Pakistan forced him to abuse and accuse Pakistan instead of uttering a single to heal wounds of Kashmiris and Mehbooba Mufti followed Modi’s sermons in her Bakhshi stadium speech and added fuel to the fire. Rasheed said, “ May Mr Modi answer where had his love for Balochis been all these years and does he mean that had Pakistan not talked with assertiveness on Kashmir then India would have found nothing wrong in Balochistan. Let Mr Modi not forget that on the eve of Independence Day, crores of Dalits too pledged to fight the upper caste Hindus and no sensible person can rule-out that Dalits may sooner or later seek a separate land for them.”
Commenting on the hooliganism of communal forces in Bangalore he said :“The treatment given to Amnesty International officials in Bangalore should serve as eye opener for the world community, which needs to realise that while GoI doesn’t spare the respected international human rights body on one hand, but tries to present itself as follower of Ahinsa by lodging FIR over the death of three dogs in Hyderabad, and on the other hand justifies and celebrates the killings of Kashmiris in the name of nationalism.”
