Addressing a function at Pathribal, Brariagan to pay “homage” to the Pathribal and Brakpora “martyrs”, Independent legislator Er Rasheed Friday asked “Kashmiri leadership” claiming to be belonging to various streams to introspect and tell people as to why everybody failed in achieving anything till date despite getting everything they demanded from Kashmiris.

Er Rasheed said that on a day when former president of Serb Republic Radowan Karadazic was convicted by UN judges at international tribunal in Hague for 40 years for carrying genocide of Serb Muslims, ill-fated families of Pathribal “martyrs” are celebrating 16th anniversary of their beloved ones and justice as usual is a distinct dream.

“Kashmiri leaders need to tell why they couldn’t even succeed in getting justice for a single Kashmiri. The tragedies of Kashmiris are not less than that of Bosnians and there are many Karadazics roaming free who have killed Kashmiris in cold blooded murders in Pathribal and elsewhere.”

Rashid said that leaders cannot simply escape by blaming India and its institutions, as we should never expect India to be sincere and honest to us as army and other institutions have carried out massacres deeming them acts of nationalism and national interest. “Leaders have to resolve issues, get justice and show a path, rather crying foul.”

“Kashmiri leaders have done nothing except accusing and blaming each other and have made things very easy for the state. Hollow promises made by everyone have made a joke of Kashmiris. Unfortunately the army of Kashmiri leaders has not only made itself doubtful before its people by creating rumours and confusions about each other but have also implemented the agenda of enemies of Kashmiris by not having a consensus over very few simple but important basic issues.”

Rashid said, “Let the people force leaders for introspection and not give them an escape route. A serious effort is needed to reach some common understanding between various thoughts so that the killers of Kashmiris are cornered and world community at least takes notice of grave human rights violations in J&K.”

The function was attended by the families of victims and people hailing from different walks of life.
