Srinagar : Incumbent MLA Langate, Er Rasheed while reacting to the killing of three unarmed civilians in Chadoora, has asked New Delhi to make it public that it is at war with every Kashmiri, irrespective of their caste, creed and gender.
In a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon, Rasheed said, All what is happening in Kashmir proves only one thing that while legally and logically J&K has never been part of India, but now it has started losing control of occupying Kashmir at the barrel of gun so it has decided to go ruthless against Kashmiris.
Rasheed said that it seems New Delhi has given up the hope of regaining control in Kashmir and as such has turned mad, without caring for the results.
The firebrand lawmaker reiterated that time and again it has been proved that it is militants who are representing the sentiment, offering huge sacrifices, not caring for their lives and enjoying a huge mass support.
Calling them terrorists has made no impact on masses on ground, he said.
Rasheed also condemned the assault on the relatives of Zahid Rasheed Ganai, who were dragged along with the dead body by police near Jahangir Chowk.
Rasheed ridiculed Mehbooba Mufti for asking militants to return to mainstream and said before asking militants anything Mehbooba should know her worth. Rasheed said, When she is herself like mouth piece of security agencies and a rubber stamp of Sang Parivar how can she give sermons to those holding arms in their hands. If New Delhi doesnt give even a damn to Kashmir issue Mehbooba should blame New Delhi for its unrealistic and arrogant attitude. She needs to know that real mainstream are those who seek right to self-determination and anyone asking something shorter than plebiscite should be treated as a traitor and separatist force for deviating from real main stream.
Rasheed also accused Mehbooba Mufti and Omer Abdullah of acting like crises Managers for New Delhi.
While world community besides being misled by the Govt of India over what is happening in Kashmir, has its own compulsions not to annoy New Delhi beyond a certain point, under such situation all Kashmiri leaders who have often preferred to be seen helping New Delhi in all its shameful acts, need to reach maximum possible consensus in telling New Delhi that making Kashmiris blood cheaper than the water is unacceptable.
