Do not add salt to injuries of Kashmiris: Rasheed to politicians, army
Srinagar, Feb 22: The words about Kashmir and Kashmiris being spoken by top political leadership do not match to what is happening on the ground, AIP president Er Rasheed on Friday appealed political and military leadership not to add salt to the injuries of Kashmiris. In a statement issued on Friday, the spokesman quoting Rasheed said that it looks nice when Home Minister Rajnath Singh makes a claim that Kashmir and Kashmiris were, are and will remain ours but on the other hand giving security forces free hand to do what they want to do with unarmed Kashmiris. “While the army is at rampage in south Kashmir, to travel on roads from Kupwara to Qazigund is becoming almost impossible as the vehicular movement is being interrupted every moment in the name of ensuring protection to army vehicles. In south Kashmir, not only youth but elders including men and women are being humiliation and nobody cares. The relatives of militants are facing huge threats to their lives and despite knowing that whosoever joins militant ranks does not take any permission from the parents,” the spokesman quoted Rasheed as saying. Quoting Rasheed the spokesman said that army commanders should answer that what was the fault of Ishaq Ah Lone, a resident of Rawalpora Shopian who has been tortured so severely that no human hearted person can even bear to see him. His only fault is that his brother has reportedly joined militancy. The law enforcing agencies are doing nothing but are hand in glow with those who commit atrocities on unarmed civilians. When security agencies and New Delhi want Kashmiris to condemn attacks on security forces, they need to answer that why do not authorities take notice of shameful atrocities on Kashmiris, he said.
