Expressing displeasure over adjournment of hearing on Article 35-A, AIP President Er  Rasheed has said that Kashmiris from Lakhanpur to Karnah were expecting the petition to be dismissed and rightly so.

In a statement, Er Rasheed said that it stands yet again proven that Delhi is using Article 35-A just to divert attention from the real issue of J&K as it is defending the indefensible as far as the real larger dispute is concerned.

Er  Rasheed said “Engaging Kashmiris with 35-A in Supreme Court is like killing them with slow poisoning. However Kashmiris have no option but to defend 35-A till their last breath, even though New Delhi wants to keep them indulged in a debate till they forget the real issue, but that may never happen as no one can compromise the huge sacrifices offered for resolution of Kashmir dispute in its historical perspective.”

Er Rasheed added that the court deferment has increased the need that mainstream parties especially NC and PDP should meet the Prime Minister and other relevant authorities to convey that 35-A Tamasha should end and the real focus should be the final settlement of Jammu & Kashmir dispute in light of UN resolutions.

He said “It is disgraceful that state and central government have managed and insured deferment of 35-A in Supreme Court only to conduct Panchayat and Municipal Polls.  Citing Panchayat and Municipal polls as a reason for deferment has exposed the true designs of centre and state government as they have not sought rejection of the petition but just the deferment and thus are moving ahead for implementing a larger agenda based on bulldozing rights of Kashmiris.

“No one is denying the significance of local and urban body polls but centre wants mainstream parties to cheat their people by first persuading them to participate into elections and then getting entire Kashmiri nation stabbed by restarting 35-A debate,” Er Rasheed.

Er Rasheed said that Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti must lead an all-party delegation and meet Modi and tell him that no one should be allowed to blackmail Kashmiris over 35-A and unless it doesn’t happen at least regional mainstream parties should take a tough stand and reconsider their participation in upcoming local bodies polls.
