Appealing Jammu & Kashmir police not to use “brutal force” against people and understand that “situation is not a law and order problem but a political one,” MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has condemned use of force against students on Saturday at Degree College Handwara.
In a statement issued, Rasheed said “JKP cannot always run away by arguing that they have no option but to use force, as they are government servants.”
“They must understand that court of conscience is much bigger than any other court and by pitching them against their own people New Delhi is virtually ensuring a domestic war between Kashmiris,” he said.
Asking police to “defy those orders which bring them shame everyday” he said it otherwise they are “scared from visiting their homes despite being sons of the soil.”
He said: “Let the cops introspect that before accusing militants, stone palters and common masses of being hostile towards local police, why should they expect respect unless they don’t earn it”.
Urging police to revisit their policy he said that they should “understand that the students taking to streets need nothing but for a durable and sustainable peace want just right to self determination for the people of state.”
