Awami Itihaad Party (AIP) workers led by MLA Langate Er Rashid Thursday staged one hour peaceful sit-in in front of state DGP’s office at Srinagar to protest against the “atrocities” on Jammu Muslims.

“Today in the afternoon, dozens of AIP volunteers holding play-cards in support of Jammu Muslims and against communal forces sat at sit-in at the main gate of police headquarters Pirbagh and started chanting strong slogans seeking end to injustices, arrests and PSAs in Jammu region,” a statement issued by AIP said this afternoon.

Talking to media persons on the occasion Rashid said, “the divisional administration in Jammu is being completely controlled by fringe and radical Hindu forces and from local SHOs to top rank police officers, the directions given by local Sung Parivar leaders have become like government orders for them to be implemented.”

“Mehbooba Mufti needs to wake up, though she is already too late. State DGP should ensure an end to state terrorism in Jammu region and must order unconditional release of all those arrested in Chenab valley during last few weeks. There can be nothing worse than lodging FIRs against prominent citizens and religious clerks,” he added.

Er Rashid led a protest outside the J&K Police headquarter at Pirbagh Hyderpora on Sep 29, 2016.

The statement said that Rashid “made it clear” that seeking resolution to Kashmir dispute through plebiscite doesn’t make people of Jammu province communal or anti-Indian.

He also sought unconditional release of all detainees slapped with PSA in Jammu region without any excuses.

“Protestors also demanded restoration of sanctity of Jamia Masjid Srinagar which continues to be under siege since last 11 consecutive Fridays. The protestors also sought immediate release of human rights activist Khurram Parvaiz,” the statement said.

Rashid reminded J&K Police not to forget that “whatsoever is happening in state has nothing to do with law and order, as it is a political issue”.

He urged police cops not to forget the fact that despite wearing uniform they are Kashmiris and “can’t remain isolated from their society and people”, the statement said.
