Muslims in Jammu are absolutely insecure, claims Rasheed


Condemning the killing of Liyaqat Ali, an eleventh class student in Bilawar Kathua as a result of stabbing him by goons, independent leader and MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Wednesday warned the government of dire consequences for its failure to protect the minority community in Jammu. While interacting with various groups in Handwara Er Rasheed said that government has proved to be a failure on all fronts and the unwanted provoking statement of Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta and a negative campaign by a section of Indian Media to give direct support to Kathua accused culprits who have emboldened fringe and communal elements to things of their choice.

The spokesman quoted Er Rasheed saying “the free hand given to goons has rendered Jammu Muslims in a feeling of an absolute sense of insecurity. Government leaves no stone unturned to prove majority in Jammu and Kashmir intolerant and radical but the fact of the matter is that their blood has become cheap from Kathua to Baramulla and Pulwama to Billawal and elsewhere.”

Rasheed while appealing for maintaining communal harmony in the entire state, Rasheed  questioned the Indian Media and state government that why did they turn a blind eye towards the confession made by tourists hailing from other states that they received all sorts of cooperation from locals in Kashmir when they came under stone Pelting at some places In South Kashmir. While referring to attack on a school bus in Shopian, Rasheed appealed students to make education their priority and restrain from targeting their own colleagues.

He said that party will carry out a protest march towards Civil Secretariat on May 7th, on eve of Opening of Darbar in Srinagar, against sense of insecurity among Jammu Muslims, use of disproportionate force against Kashmiris, continuation of SRO-202, failure of government to fulfil genuine demands of clerical staff, delay in release of salaries of SSA teachers and flooded entry of beggars and slum dwellers in Kashmir valley.
