Hundreds on Wednesday joined a protest march led by AIP President Er Rasheed in Handwara against the Pulwama killings.
The party spokesman said that protesters carrying play cards, black flags and banners passed through various markets of Handwara and were raising forceful slogans against Pulwama “massacre”.
Addressing the gathering in Handwara Er Rasheed said that nobody should underestimate the sacrifices of Kashmiris especially people of Kupwara who have sacrificed everything for the resolution of Kashmir dispute and are facing worst at the hands of security agencies every day.
“No one has a right to sell the sacrifices of Heroes of Kupwara and any such move will be resisted tooth and nail. How it is possible that people of Kupwara will not feel the pain of their brothers in Pulwama as Kupwara has been the gateway of sufferings,” the spokesman quoted Rasheed as saying.
He said the SOP is nothing but just an eyewash to give an impression that security forces are following a procedure. As if blinding and jailing Kashmiris was not enough, men in uniform have crossed all moralities to kill Kashmiris.
J&K Police is, unfortunately, reinforcing New Delhi’s “terror “and the saner voices in JKP have been forced to shut their mouth, he said.
On the occasion, protesters took a pledge to follow all those sensible voices who will represent sentiments, aspirations and sacrifices of Kashmiris.
