How can guns and swords be displayed in Jammu? Rasheed asks CM

SRINAGAR: Urging Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to rise to the occasion and protect Kashmiris from further humiliation, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Engineer Rasheed has sought end to brutality against Kashmiris at the hands of various security agencies.

While interacting with Mehbooba Mufti at Kupwara along with a deputation comprising various walks of life Rasheed sought Mehbooba Muftis, concrete and time bound intervention in tracing out the missing youth Manzoor Ahmad Khan from Devar lolab who allegedly disappeared in Army custody.

“It is duty of the government to ensure safety of its citizens but there can be nothing shameful than the fact that rights of Kashmiris are being bulldozed, their cries taken for granted and their self respect destroyed on daily basis, one way or the other,” Rashed was quoted saying by a local news gatherer. “There is no justification in killing Kashmiris and disappearing them in custody just taking the shelter of draconian, inhuman laws like APSFA”.

Rasheed appealed Mehbooba Mufti to intervene and get two youth from Handwara namely Zahoor Ahmad Pir and Nazir Ahmad Pir back to their homes without further delay, who have been taken by NIA a year after Bahadur Ali, an alleged Pakistani militant, was arrested in their native village.

He also sought stern action against those who carried out armed rallies yesterday in Jammu on eve of Hari Singh’s birth anniversary. “Your good self needs to explain if Kashmiris are dragged even to Delhi just to shut their mouth for speaking truth, how goons in Jammu be allowed to take armed rallies and wave swords and guns,” Rasheed is reported to have said the Chief Minister. “ How can it be a tribute to Maharaja when they hackled even Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh and humiliated him. If APSFA doesn’t allow Kashmiris to write even a comment of their choice on the social media, how do these anti-peace elements display arms in broad day light just to threaten a particular community”.
