UNGA speech: Sushma Swaraj should have collected courage to tell truth about Kashmir, Rasheed says


Expressing his disappointment over foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj’s speech at UN General Assembly, MA Langate Er Rasheed on Sunday accused Delhi of running away from the Himalayan facts over seventy-year long dispute pending before UN.

The spokesman said that while Sushma Swaraj has every right to highlight India’s achievements in various sectors but before crying about being victim of “terrorism” she should have at least informed UN how many innocent Kashmiris were killed by the army, CRPF, J&K Police and other security agencies since her last year’s speech till her this year’s speech.

He said she should have been honest to confess in accepting that men in uniform are enjoying extra-constitutional powers and extra-judicial “murders” have become the real face of security agencies in Kashmir. She should have collected the courage and told UN how many Kashmiris have been blinded with pallets, jailed, humiliated, martyred and disappeared during last year by the security agencies in Kashmir. She should have also talked about India’s constant and continuous efforts of dishonesty, conspiracies, and cheatings.

He said that Delhi has indulged with Kashmiris even within the ambits of the Indian constitution. She should have also told UN that how India has been disrespecting even the original but temporary instrument of accession between J&K and India.

Rasheed reminded Sushma Swaraj that J&K is not only a piece of land but people on both sides of LOC have been promised Right to Self Determination by the same UN. Rasheed said that before seeking permanent membership of the world’s largest Panchayat, Sushma Swaraj should have collected courage and talked few words about New Delhi’s constant denial to implement UN resolutions on J&K. If New Delhi doesn’t believe in UN Charter and gives excuses to implement UN resolutions on Kashmir, it has no right to seek permanent membership of UN.
