Rasheed at Kupwara today seeking justice for the martyrs of 27th Jan 1994, butchered at the hands of Army without any provocation. Protestors were chanting strong slogans seeking justice for the families of martyrs, removal of AFSPA and end to state terrorism. The March was scheduled to end at Martyrs graveyard where a public meeting was to be held. However a heavy contingent of Police and CRPF stopped the protestors near Branwari and arrested Er. Rasheed along with many colleagues and detained them at police station Kupwara. Talking to media persons before his arrest Er. Rasheed said that army by citing AFSPA and objecting to the investigation of Kupwara massacre, is actually confessing the guilt and the world community must realize that how Kashmiris are being denied justice by taking the shelter of draconian, undemocratic and uncivilized laws like AFSPA. Er. Rasheed asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to either apologize for the genocide of Kashmiris that took place since 1989 or must allow international organizations to investigate the truth. Coming down heavily on CM Mehbooba Mufti Er. Rasheed said that she has proved to be worst hypocrite and has compromised everything.
