Mehbooba must stop theatrics: Rasheed


Srinagar, July 29: Lashing out at former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Independent lawmaker and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has asked her not to “make a joke of herself” and said that she needs to know whatsoever is happening in Kashmir is “not a theatre but a reality”.

“Whatsoever Mehbooba Mufti has been speaking after being shown backdoor is yielding nothing except eroding and exposing the credibility and self-respect of mainstream politicians.”


“By saying that alliance with BJP was like having a cup of poison, she has confessed that not only PDP has stabbed Kashmiris but late Mufti Sahab died only because he had consumed that poison. Before starting her new serial she must apologize to Kashmiris,” Rasheed said in a statement.

He added: “She should not expect that Kashmiris are having such a short memory but those still following her directionless and false agenda should introspect that their support to Mehbooba is immoral, incorrect and means betraying their own future. Miss Mehboob Mufti by her daily based theatric acts has destroyed  the faith of  Kashmiris  in mainstream politicians and they have every reason to believe that mainstream parties are agents of New Delhi, who had been given the task to stab Kashmiris resistance movement against perks and privileges.”

Rasheed lashed out at NC leader Omar Abdullah for criticizing Mehbooba Mufti and reminded him that his free sermons has no takers for the reason that entire Sheikh dynasty has a history of betrayals and Mehbooba Mufti is simply following NC’s footprints.

He said, “Both these parties are recognized only for stabbing Kashmiris, indulging in scandals and promoting  dynasty role, which can be authenticated by the fact that NC Patron Farooq Abdullah is himself out on the bail and has no morality to speak for issues which he is never serious about.”

Rasheed also ridiculed Jitendra Singh, Minister in PMO for his remarks that word “issue” should not be affiliated with Kashmir.

He said, “Kashmir issue doesn’t need anybody’s approval or confession to be called as an issue or dispute as it is not only everywhere from United Nations to Shimla and from Tashkand to Agra but is haunting India’s first PM Jawahar Lal Nehru’s soul”.

Speaking on the occasion Dr. Sajad Subhan Rather, based on his experience as vice president AMUSA narrated in detail how Indian Muslims are facing discriminated everywhere. Others who spoke on the occasion included Prince Parvez, Advocate Majid Banday, Advocate Noor-ul-Shahbaz and Molvi Shabir.
