AIP chief and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed Sunday made an appeal to the people of Jammu to support the movement for Self-determination and said that resolution of Kashmir issues is in interests of every section of society.
He was addressing a day long convention organized by AIP and United Democratic Party (UDP) jointly at Gandhi Nagar Jammu and was attended by hundreds of people hailing from all the communities from Jammu.
The spokesman of the party said that the prominent Sikh leader and social activist Sardar Amar Jeet Singh Babloo joined AIP along with dozens of his supporters on the occasion.
The spokesman further said that all the speakers were unanimous in seeking a resolution to the long pending political dispute of J&K and were unanimous that seeking resolution to Kashmir dispute, fighting against Sang Parivar, protecting minorities and seeking justice for deprived people doesn’t amount to communalism and antinationalism. The convention lasted for the whole day and more than two dozen speakers expressed their views.
Speakers strongly advocated for strengthening AIP, so that it can become an alternate platform to represent the sentiments and aspirations of people of all the three regions, besides giving them good governance.
Er. Rasheed in his speech lashed out at Indian leadership for giving the political struggle of people of J&K a communal angle. “Whatsoever the state will get after final resolution to Kashmir dispute or has been enjoying as on date within ambits of Indian constitution, is not helping or going to help only the Muslims or the people of Kashmir only but all the stake holders will be the dividends of resolution to dispute,” Rashid said and added that “whether atrocities on Dalits, Sikhs or Muslims are concerned nobody on earth can stop us from raising our voices and we will have to fight the radical forces, who have kept everybody hostage.”
He had further said that “if the state apparatus continuous to fail us we will take to streets and ensure that rights of every section of society are protected and the voice for right to self determination is not given a communal colour”.
