MLA Langate and AIP Supremo Er Rasheed today condemned the raids by police in various areas of Kashmir.
"I reiterate my appeal to J&K police not to encourage an atmosphere that would put masses and the local cops against each other,' Rasheed said addressing public gatherings at Drusoo and Gund Karim Khan in Rafiabad today.
"While world is getting dividends of information technology everywhere, in Kashmir even social media has become a tool to suppress the voice of youth as anyone trying to reflect the genuine aspirations of people is being harassed and called at concerned police stations. Security forces are carrying out unwanted catch and search operations. Such moves are aimed at harassing and demoralizing masses just to give New Delhi a perception that without the writ of security forces Kashmiris cannot be controlled," Rasheed said in a statement.
"I appeal the saner voices within police force to give a thought to the sentiments and aspirations of people so that the process of increasing trust deficit between the local police and the masses gets minimized," he added.
