Jammu,: Police cordoned today MLA Langate Er. Rasheeds Jammu residence and he was not allowed to come out of his residence, to prevent him from visiting Pir Panchal valley, where he was supposed to carry out a three day extensive tour of different areas.
However after intervention of state DGP Er. Rasheed was allowed to travel around 11:00 AM towards Pir Panchal region, but was detained by a heavy contingent of police assisted by dozens of right wing Hindu activists at Domana. Police detained Er. Rasheed along with hiscolleagues in police station Domana and facilitated Right Wing goons to carry out a protest against Er. Rasheed outside police station.
The protesters with full patronage of police raised highly objectionable slogans against Kashmiris, Pakistan and Er. Rasheed and even few entered into police station using rude and abusive language. The concerned SP forced Er. Rasheed to get deported back to Jammu.
Meanwhile Party spokesman Inam-u-Nabi strongly condemned the incident and alleged that it is hard to make a difference between Policemen in Uniform and RSS goons.
He said Police left no stone unturned to pressurise Er. Rasheed, Instead of dealing with the goons and facilitating Er. Rasheeds peaceful political activities, the concerned SP and his colleagues preferred to act like private Army of Sang Parivar.
Spokesman alleged that police is denting its neutral image and the minorities even the legislators are facing humiliation on daily basis.
However joint, managed, humiliating and objectionable acts of police force and Sang Parivar will not stop us from telling the truth and it is proper time to judge that who is communalizing situation in Jammu region.
