K-dispute, Mubarak’s ouster dissimilar: Er Rasheed
AVALANCHES IN GUREZ
Srinagar, Feb 13: MLA Langate, Er Rasheed on Sunday said “there were no similarities” between the Kashmir issue and the ouster of Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak.
“Kashmir is a 63-year-old political problem while as agitation in Egypt was against the misrule of a ruler. Hence drawing parallels between the two is ridiculous,” he said.
Rasheed said, “Because of Kashmir issue innumerable lives have been lost and many maimed; this is a human issue while as in Egypt the issues are related to governance and economy. What makes Kashmir’s separatists and mainstream politicians to compare the two?” Rasheed asked.
He said since the parties from both separatist and mainstream spectrum ‘failed’ to bring relief to traumatized Kashmiris, now they “were befooling the people with such ridiculous assertions.” “Some parties are resorting to such politicking because they are eyeing power, while as others are doing this to divert attention from real issues,” he observed.
“Instead of befooling Kashmiris with emotional statements, National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party should try to find a common ground and sit together to at least minimize the sufferings of Kashmiris,” he said.
