Don’t use Lt Umer’s killing to divert attention from Kashmir: MLA


Handwara: Asking New Delhi to stop using lieutenant Umer Fayaz’s killing to defame and humiliate Kashmiris for defending its absolutely weak argument on Kashmir dispute, AIP supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that so called national media and communal minded pseudo intellectuals have entered into worst dirty character assassination race against Kashmiris.

Interacting with people in Handwara, Er. Rasheed said that it is worst than a joke that those killing Muslims in the name of protecting cows are accusing Kashmiris of radicalisation and Wahabisation just to avoid plebiscite. It is painful that retire Army Generals and TV anchors interpret the indigenous resistance movement by their own selfish, biased and anti-Muslim standards”.

Er. Rasheed said that those TV anchors and so called political analysts who try to create a division within Kashmiri society must have faced heat of the slap, when Tahir Mir son of a Kashmiri policeman from Bandipora, who had lost his life in 2002 during an anti-militancy operation, was forced to appear handcuffed in the examination on the subject ‘peace building and conflict mitigation’.

Er. Rasheed said “If the claims of those wanting to divide Kashmiris over dead bodies would have been true, then Tahir should not have been facing continuous detentions under PSA for emerging as a strong icon of resistance struggle, despite being highly educated and his father being killed in an anti-militancy operation. The TV anchors should know the answer to their stupid questions from Tahir Mir that why does he support the mass resistance. It is a reality of broad day light that Tahir and hundreds of others whose near and dear ones have lost their beloved ones during anti-militancy operations, do directly blame New Delhi for facilitating and creating an environment and a situation where Kashmiris were forced to be pitched against each other. These shameless and senseless propagandists need to know that it is not they who get punished for the arrogance, atrocities and conspiracies of New Delhi against Kashmiris but Kashmiris like lieutenant Umer Fayaz, Const. Habibullah and many others have to pay for it.”
