Inform people about your achievements: Er Rasheed to Hurriyats
Laisar (Rafiabad) Feb 15: MLA Langate Engineer Sheikh Abdul Rashid on Wednesday said that Kashmiris have offered huge sacrifices for a permanent solution to the Kashmir issue.
Rashid who visited this north Kashmir village and expressed solidarity with the family of Ashiq Hussain, killed allegedly by soldiers last week, said, “Both factions of the Hurriyat Conference, which claims to represent aspirations of Kashmiris, should inform people about their achievements. People have every right to know whether the sacrifices rendered by them have yielded any results or not.”
He said Kashmiris have not rendered invaluable sacrifices for Autonomy, Self Rule or Sadak, Pani Bijli but have been demanding a permanent solution to the problem without which peace cannot prevail in the region.
He said that a long lasting and practicable solution of the Kashmir Problem is not possible until a serious dialogue is initiated and stake holders like United Jihad Council (UJC) are included in it.
The MLA Langate said the killing of Ashiq Hussain depicts the “insecurity” Kashmiris face. “Government of India should explain what happened to its promise of zero tolerance for human rights in Kashmir. The central government and the state government owe an explanation to people. If an innocent person like Ashiq can be killed inside his home so one can imagine the fate of the people living in far flung areas?” he added.
He appealed people to create their own Bait-ul-Maal in every village so that an immediate relief is extended to any family in the hour of grief.
Meanwhile, Er Rasheed paid Rs 50,000/ cash relief to the bereaved family on behalf of his Joint Effort Trust.
