Reiterating his appeal for a ceasefire between militants and the government forces, MLA Langate Abdul Rasheed Sunday said the "bloodbath" by government forces in Shopian has again proved that New Delhi was far away from its goal in J&K.
"Except Indian media to improve their TRPs and the security forces to get perks, privileges and promotions, no one including Indian State is getting benefited from the genocide of Kashmiris. Every killing strengthens anti-India sentiments and those counting dead bodies are living in fool's paradise. It is high time for New Delhi to understand that every bullet and pellet being fired in Kashmir will ultimately destroy and shrink further India's grip in J&K," the AIP leader said in a statement.
"Without resolving Kashmir issue New Delhi will find it more difficult in coming days at national and international platforms to defend its barbarism and brutalities."
"After killing every top rank commander, security forces claimed it big success but the time proved that from Burhan Wani to Sabzar Bhat and from Sameer Tiger to Saddam Padder every killing proved counterproductive and even more sensible and educated youth joined militancy," he said.
"New Delhi will have to stop its propaganda of calling Kashmiri youth as terrorists and must offer an unconditional ceasefire with the militant outfits to save humanity from bleeding further and to give peaceful resolution to Kashmir dispute a chance. It is time to give up the ego and accept the ground realities," Rasheed said.
