Breaking strict restrictions dozens joined a march led by AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed at Kupwara on Saturday seeking justice for the civilians who were brutally killed by the army on January 27, 1994.
The spokesman said that Protestors were chanting strong slogans seeking justice for the families of deceased, removal of AFSPA and end to state terrorism.
The Spokesman added that the march was scheduled to end at Martyr’s graveyard where a public meeting was to be held. However, a heavy contingent of Police and CRPF stopped the protestors near Branwari and arrested Rasheed along with many colleagues and detained them at police station Kupwara.
“Talking to media persons before his arrest Rasheed said that army by citing AFSPA and objecting to the investigation of Kupwara massacre, is actually confessing the guilt and the world community must realize that how Kashmiris are being denied justice by taking the shelter of draconian, undemocratic and uncivilized laws like AFSPA.”
Rasheed asked Prime Minister Modi to either apologize for the genocide of Kashmiris that took place since 1989 or must allow international organizations to investigate the truth.Coming down heavily on CM Mehbooba Mufti Er. Rasheed said that she has proved to be the worst hypocrite and has compromised everything.
