Rasheed along with his workers held a sit-in on Residency Road.
The workers were carrying placards seeking an end to genocide in Kashmir. Rasheed raised slogans against India and Army and asked Jammu Kashmir Police to come to their senses.
Thirteen militants, four civilians and three security men were killed in three encounters at Anantnag and Shopian on Sunday.
While talking to reporters, Engineer Rasheed said that killings of civilians and militants are not going to solve any problem. He said India is resorting to genocide in Kashmir. Unless and until India doesnt address the basic issue, people in Kashmir will not fall silent and they will continue to take on India, he said.
He said that those people should feel ashamed of themselves who rejoice the killings of militants. First they are our Kashmiri youth and then militants. It is India that forced them to take to guns, he added.
