Rising Kashmir NewsAnantnag:
Asking India and Pakistan “to stop using sacrifices and sufferings of Kashmiris for their political objectives”, AIP chief and MLA Langate Er Rasheed Wednesday urged the two countries to concentrate on dividends of peace and avoid animosity.
While interacting with people from different walks of life in Anantnag today Er Rasheed said: “The blame game and leveling charges against each other at United Nations will take them nowhere and for the welfare of the people of sub-continent they need to resolve Kashmir dispute through principals of justice and in light of historic perspective.”
Rasheed said: “New Delhi should not forget the words of its own PM Narendra Modi on 15th Aug, saying to embarrass Kashmiris, but his words need to be matched with actions on the ground.”
“While after his speech many innocents lost their lives, Nasrullah Khan of Devar Lolab is yet fighting for his life and his another colleague Manzoor Ahmad Khan is missing in the custody of security forces. The actions at the ground are enough to believe that New Delhi believes in denying justice when it comes to Kashmiris and often wastes no time in using every rumor and opportunity to humiliate and disgrace them,” Rasheed said, adding: “With eight lakh soldiers deployed in Kashmir and armed with all draconian laws, New Delhi can never claim to be a saint and must admit its huge guilt and ensure some justice to people of Jammu & Kashmir.”
It will be in New Delhi’s own interests to come out of its confusions and agree to resolving Kashmir dispute by respecting sacrifices, sentiments and aspirations of Kashmiri people besides fulfilling commitments made at national and international forums,. Rasheed said.
He welcomed UN Human Rights Commissioner Zaid Raad al Hussain’s appeal to allow the entry of fact finding teams to both sides of Kashmir to take stock of human rights in the region.
He said that if both countries treat J&K not just a piece of land they must allow international organizations to visit the area.
