Incumbent Langate lawmaker, Er Rasheed has criticised the government for burying the deceased militants, killed in Langate encounter, at a remote place in Langate and termed it as an act of frustration.
In a statement issued here, Rasheed said, “Every Kashmiri wants the circus of death and destruction to end and we firmly believe that no mother whosoever she may be should receive the coffins of her beloved one. While mothers of militants do deserve the condolences, the killing of Army Jawans gives equal pain to their mothers,” he said.
Rasheed said, “Once someone gets killed, it hardly makes a difference where he is buried, but the way police, army and civil administration has started a new practice of burying unknown militants in Jungles and remote areas, even without performing proper rituals, it is condemnable and must stop.”
He said that by burying unknown militants outside habitations, one can easily judge that New Delhi apprehends huge protests after every killing, irrespective of the fact whether militant killed is a local or having unknown identity.
“The act of burying unknown militants at vulnerable places is a move to avoid the protests and the public anger but rather by doing so New Delhi must understand that there is no alternative but to resolve J&K dispute by giving Kashmiris Right to Self-Determination.”
