SrinagarCondemning Army Chief Gen. Bepin Rawats remarks that India is fighting a dirty war in Kashmir, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rashid has said that it is not Indian Army but the common Kashmiris who are facing the dirtiest aggression from Indian state only for the reason that they are seeking right to self-determination.
In a statement Er. Rashid reminded Gen. Bepin Rawat that Kashmiris never welcomed Indian Army to enter the state, as it was Maharaja whose conspiracy brought Indian Army in J&K just to supress the voice of masses. It would be in Indias own interest if Bepin Rawat and others would ask New Delhi not to waste its energy in J&K but agree to durable political settlement to the long pending dispute.
Er. Rashid said It is astonishing to see Bepin Rawat publically making a wish if Kashmiri youth could take up guns, rather taking stones in their hands. By saying so Gen. Rawat has unmasked the fact that Indian Army enjoys killing Kashmiris and is just in search of excuses to kill them. The statement not only speaks about the insecurity among Indian security agencies but also justifies anger on roads. How can Kashmiris be blamed to instigate a dirty war when more than one lac. Kashmiris have been killed, every locality has seen huge destruction and security forces get perks, privileges and promotions for killing them. Er. Rashid added that Bepin Rawat should not forget that J&K dispute is a political problem and he and his army are not fighting any trained armed army but the unarmed masses, whose conviction is much bigger than those threatening Kashmiris in New Delhi.
