Says cursing Nehru will not help New Delhi
Handwara 15 Oct, 2017: Reacting to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s Claim that no power can stop resolution of Kashmir dispute, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has said that kashmiries would be most happy if Raj Nath Sing Ji and his government are able to transform their claims into reality. While interacting with people at various places in Handwara today Er Rasheed said “it is people of Jammu and Kashmir who have suffered worst in absence of resolution to the dispute and if NDA government truly realises necessity of finding a resolution, kashmiris will be first to welcome such efforts. However Rajnath Singh ji needs to understand that the resolution has to be found after taking all the three parties into confidence and taking into consideration the historic perspective of the issue and sentiments and aspirations of people of the state. Kashmiris would offer their sincere support to all such efforts which truly would be aimed at finding the resolution”. Er Rasheed however reiterated that threats and peace efforts can not go together and what so ever is happening in the state has to be seen in the proper context. Er Rasheed added that Home Minister’s revelation that had India’s first Prime Minister Mr Nehru given Sardar Patel a free hand, Kashmir problem would not have been there, is ample proof to conclude that kashmiris are not to be blamed for the creation of dispute and whatsoever has been happening since 1947 is because of New Delhi’s failure to fulfil Mr Nehru’s promises. Er Rasheed reminded Mr Raj Nath Singh that cursing Mr Nehru will not help, but fulfilling his promises is a moral and legal responsibility of anyone who may be in power in India.
