Accusing National parties of misleading Indian masses over Kashmir dispute, AIP President Er Rasheed on Friday said that whenever India and Pakistan hold talks, the Kashmir issue should be the first preference during the discussions.
The spokesman quoting Rasheed said that on one hand genuine voices of Kashmiris are being muzzled and governor even calls every one a separatist who talks about rights of Kashmiri people but on the other hand New Delhi asks Pakistan and world community its willingness to talk on Kashmir issue with Pakistan. He said “if Pakistan ends alleged militant activities in J&K, and if J&K is India’s integral part, then why and what India has to talk. The confusing stand of New Delhi is just to befool Indians and by muzzling the voice of Kashmiris.”
Rasheed said that National leaders and the Governor need to realize that talking about Kashmir dispute and its resolution doesn’t mean separatism. He said if Delhi is itself ready to talk on Kashmir then why to mislead innocent Indians.
Rasheed also condemned sealing Jami Masjid Srinagar for second consecutive Friday and said that the act is straight away an act of interference in religious affairs. He said “With Yatra yet five months away the government has started mega preparations for the success of the Yatra but unfortunately, the majority community is being deprived of its fundamental right to pray.
