Appealing New Delhi to restrain from harassing and humiliating Kashmiris just to avoid a ‘dignified resolution’ of Jammu and Kashmir dispute, independent lawmaker from Langate Engineer Rasheed has said that it is legal and moral responsibility and duty of state government to find out the truth behind braid chopping incidents.
While interacting with people of different sections in Handwara and adjoining areas on Sunday, Er Rasheed said, “New Delhi needs to understand that Kashmir dispute is not creation of any individual or amalgam but the bitter outcome of partition of 1947. Crushing voice of all those political leaders, individuals or organizations by various means, who speak about realities and aspirations of masses, will take New Delhi nowhere as the burden of history can never ever be written off by using suppression and oppression at various levels. Disrespecting genuine voices and by indulging in mud sliding New Delhi is going to achieve nothing except complicating the problem further.”
As per a party statement Er Rasheed has also said, “Nabbing those involved in braid chopping is itself a question of credibility for police administration as state police has been on and often wasting very little time in claiming unmasking bigger conspiracies and gangs.” He also said, “People have a right to know from the police that why couldn’t it show and utilize same professionalism in resolving the braid chopping cases.”
Er Rasheed has appealed masses to show maturity and restrain while dealing with braid chopping incidents. “Rumour mongers and other miscreants within society need to be identified by the society,” he said.
