Says Chief Minister must act not condemn
Handwara 22 Dec. Hundreds joined today the protest march led by Er. Rasheed in Handwara after Friday Prayers to protest against civilian killings at the hands of security forces in Shopian, Kupwara, Handwara and other places.
Protesters were raising pro-plebiscite and anti-forces slogans and demanding immediate end to state terrorism.
SHO Handwara tried to stop the procession but protesters defying the restrictions moved ahead.
Near Main Chowk Handwra a large contingent of police led by Shabir Ahmad Khan SDPO Handwara stopped the procession and arrested Er. Rasheed and lodged him in Police Station Hndwara.
Talking to media persons before being arrested Er. Rasheed appealed J&K police not to forget that they have to live and die with the society and should not act as collaborators for the army. He said “World community should take notice that who gets indulged in terrorism.
There can be nothing shameless than the fact that those who were supposed to protect the life and property of innocents are after the blood of not only young men but not sparing the women folk”.
Er. Rasheed accused Mehbooba Mufti of being a mute spectator and said that her condemnations over these killings have lost the relevance, for the reason that she being the Chief Minister of the state has to do things rather making hue and cry.
He said “Mhbooba Mufti’s condemnations de reveal that she has lost the control and nothing is in her hands”.
