Police and CRPF on Friday detained MLA Langate Er Rasheed at Banihal and deported him back to Kashmir while he was on a three-day tour to Jammu province to express solidarity with Jammu Muslims and to grab support for advocate Talib currently in Police custody, a spokesperson said.
“Er Rasheed was to address several public meetings in Jammu province and was supposed to address a gathering at Banihal after Friday prayers today, however, a heavy contingent of police and CRPF detained Er Rasheed at the other side of Jawahar Tunnel and didn’t allow him to proceed further,” the spokesman Advocate Majid Banday said.
He said while condemning the police action has said that the Muslims in Jammu have been left to the mercy of communal goons and biased police force.
The spokesman further said, “It is unfortunate that the genuine voice of people is being suppressed and whosoever intends to raise his voice against the atrocities is forced to either shut the mouth or his movement is restricted. AIP leadership will never scum to these dirty tactics but will continue to speak for deprived masses cutting across regional, religious and ethnic affiliations.
“The state administration must understand that by disrespecting voice of elected people Delhi is disgracing itself and Er Rasheed is exposing the myth of Indian democracy facing all odds,” he said.
The Spokesman assured people of Jammu that entire Kashmiri nation are at the back of Jammu Muslims who are facing state-sponsored terror only to increase the vote bank of BJP.
