Seeks release of Salahuddin’s son
Srinagar, 25 Oct: Reiterating that talks and threats cannot go together Awami Ittehad Party (AIP) supreamo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has expressed his displeasure over arresting of son, Shahid Yousf, of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen’s supreme commonder Syed Salahuddin by NIA.
In a statement issued today Er Rasheed said ”New Delhi needs to come out of confusions and people have a right to know as to what is the real Kashmir policy of current NDA govt. Appointing an interlocutor on one hand to talk to Kashmiri’s but arresting Salahuddin’s son on the other hand makes no sense. Either New Deli should show seriousness in dialogue process and release all political prisoners and stop harassing the families of militants or must not mislead masses in the name of dialogue. Salahuddin’s son is not a criminal so humiliating him or any innocent Kashmiri is unacceptable”.
Er Rasheed reiterated that militants are the stake holders and have offered huge sacrifices for resolution of Kashmir issue. He said ”sooner or later New Delhi will have to include militant leadership in talks,. it is because of militants that people have no option but to make talk offers and ignoring them will yield nothing”. Er. Rasheed added that New Delhi wants to demoralize Kashmiri’s so that they surrender and talk the choice of New Delhi only. He however said “let New Delhi understand such stupid and dirty measures have neither had in past and nor will have any takers in future”
