SRINAGAR Engineer Abdul Rashid led an Awami Itehad Party march to Martyrs graveyard Naqashbandh Sahab Srinagar to pay tributes to martyrs of 13 July 1931, a spokesman said.
On the occasion, Er Rasheed as per a statement addressed a gathering at the graveyard and urged New Delhi and Islamabad not to make Kashmir a battle field and should fulfill the promises made with Kashmiris at United Nations and other places from time to time.
Amid slogans, Er Rasheed asked New Delhi not to forget that Jawahar Lal Nehru was Indias Prime Minister and commitments made by him need to be fulfilled and respected.
He lashed out at Governor for not visiting the graveyard and said No doubt the martyrs dont need tributes from those who are carrying the legacy of those who butchered them on 13 July 1931, but the state being under Governors rule, Malik was duty bound to visit the martyrs graveyard. It is horrible that as usual BJP disgraced the martyrs and no one from the party turned up to the place.
Er Rasheed said by such acts, BJP is proving that it has no respect for the state constitution and they should be booked under law for this horrible arrogance. New Delhi has lowered the stature of its own parliament by passing a resolution, claiming entire J&K to be Indias integral part but never giving a roadmap to fulfill its claim.
