Killings in Kashmir outcome of New Delhi’s arrogance, betrayal: Er Rasheed
Langate: Awami Itehaad Party (AIP) president and MLA Langate, Engineer Abdul Rasheed Sheikh on Saturday visited the family of slain Furqan Rashid Lone at Langate who was killed at Guloora encounter and offered his condolences with the family.
Er Rasheed as per the statement issued here on the occasion reiterated that “whosoever loses his life in the Kashmir conflict is because of the arrogance and the betrayal of New Delhi from its promises made with people of J&K from time to time.”
“No one has more desire for peace getting established in J&K than the Kashmiris themselves but unless New Delhi does not show will to resolve Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN resolutions, it is difficult for Kashmiris to reconcile,” he said adding that those giving sermons of peace have shown huge disrespect even towards the dead.
“Army soldiers dragging the dead body of slain militant in Jagarkotli Jammu exposed the tall claims of morality and ethics Indian army has been claiming to be adopting. Once even a worst enemy loses his life, all the animosity has to go, but whatsoever treatment was given to the body of the militant cannot be justified by any law, ethics, morality or even jungle raaj may not allow it,” he said.
He also said that Bipin Rawat must respond to the incident and needs to make his soldiers clear that disrespecting your enemy after death makes no difference to the deceased person but those indulged in the immoral and inhuman act loose social sanctity.
AIP president reiterated that New Delhi has to be accountable for every drop of blood and every killing and it is shameful that rather giving up ego and inviting stake holders for a meaningful dialogue, the Indian security agencies are being given liberty to kill innocents and celebrate the deaths.
“No Kashmiri wants to keep game of death and destruction alive but New Delhi through its security agencies leaves no stone unturned to provoke young teen agers and youth to take to arms. Those deriving entertainment from encounters and getting huge perks and awards for the killings need to introspect a lot,” he said appealing world community to ask New Delhi to come forward for a durable settlement of the dispute of J&K.
