Er Rashid castigates Ministers for R-Day sermons
Srinagar, Jan 27: MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Sunday reacted strongly to the offers made by various ministers on R-Day to separatists asking them to hold dialogue with New Delhi to resolve Kashmir dispute.
In a statement Er Rasheed said that these ministers have said nothing new and “in fact whosoever has remained in power in the ill fated state, has always delivered these traditional speeches on January 26 and August 15 every year for more than half a century”.
Er Rasheed said that if Omar led government is not in a position to revoke Public Safety Act, Armed Forces Special Powers Act or even lift the ban on SMS services, it should not add insult to the injuries of Kashmiris by building castles in the air. “Whole world knows that government of India lacks sincerity and does not want to compromise even an inch from its unrealistic, unjustified, illogical and arrogant stand and has made up its mind to run state of Jammu and Kashmir through agencies at barrel of gun irrespective of fact who is in power in New Delhi”, he said.
“Under such circumstances it seems nothing but joke and mockery that state ministers are talking something much more beyond their competence. It would have been much appropriate if NC leaders would have sought sincere support from main opposition party PDP and other pro-Kashmiri forces to help in forcing Govt of India to change its illogical stand on the political problem of JK”, he added.
“These ministers working like puppets should know that from President of India to every politician, on R-Day talked about Damni rape and murder case but none of our ministers who presided over R-Day celebrations in the state did not utter even a single word towards rape victims of Kunan Poshpora, Shopian, Tabinda Gani and dozens of other cases.”
He said if state Government cannot release political prisoners like Masrat Alam, Dr Qasim Faktoo and Mushtaq ul Islam how its ministers have a right to offer dialogue to separatists on behalf of New Delhi. “It would have been better if NC leadership would have confessed before people of state that it has miserably failed to restore autonomy which it has been claiming to be its agenda since decades and using it as a tool of exploitation to rule the heads not hearts of people of the state”.
When NC leaders including Omar Abdullah are talking death and destruction brought by the gun in Kashmir and claim that their leader late Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah was offered gun by China” they forget that at that time Sheikh Sahib’s wisdom, commitment and sincerity could have resolved the issue without waging an armed struggle but unfortunately the late leader failed in doing so, he added.
