Hakeem cautions against communalising Rasana Kathua rape-murder case

Jammu, March 04: Chairman PDF and MLA Khansahib Hakeem Mohammad Yaseen has cautioned about the disastrous ramifications of communalising the situation arising out of rape and killing of 8 year old nomadic girl child in Rasana village of Hiranagar Kathua adding that politicising a human tragedy is a very sham full act.
In a statement issued, Hakeem Yaseen has said that some people both in Kashmir and Jammu areas are trying to get political milage out of this tragedy notwithstanding the fact that communalising the situation shall have disastrous consequences for the overall interests of the state as well as whole country.
He has urged for observing utmost wisdom and maturity to deal with the emerging situation so that it may not flare up into communal frenzy and hatred between the communities. “Let Law take its course,” Hakeem said while asking politicians to keep off their hands from this issue. He said interference of politicians and vested interests in the ugly and unfortunate incident would only hamper its fair trial.
Hakeem Yaseen has asked the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to go through sensitivity of the issue with utmost seriousness as efforts are being made to use it for creating hatred and wedge between the communities. He has cautioned that if the matter was not handled with precaution, the situation may drift away from the hands of administration.
