Awami Ittehad Party chairperson and lawmaker of Langate Er Rasheed Friday said that unless the Kashmir issue is resolved, incidents like Handwara are bound to happen. Rasheed was addressing a condolence meeting at the residence of Mohammad Iqbal, who fell to bullets of forces on Tuesday in Handwara.
Rasheed said, “Let Indian state not mislead the world community and its own people by trying to detach the incident from the real anger and sentiments of people. Let everybody know that from protests over day to day administrative problems to domestic issues, most of these unhealthy incidents end-up at anti-India slogans.”
He said that the reason for this is that government of India has done nothing during last 68 years to resolve the burning humanitarian problem, except buying time and using “force” against Kashmiris.
“The remarkable response and resistance shown by whole of district Kupwara over Handwara incident has proved all those analysts wrong who were claiming that people of Kupwara prefer development over sentiment and let everyone understand that the remarkable resistance and huge anger shown by people of Kupwara should be read as writing on the wall that people of this district have not forgotten the huge sacrifices they have offered during last 26 years.”
