Bar Council of India’s clean chit to Kuthua Bar shameful……….Er. Rasheed
Handwara 27 April: Terming, Bar Council of India’s clean chit to Kuthua Bar for its shameful act of preventing crime branch from producing the Challan before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Kuthua in Asifa’s rape and murder case, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that the Bar council of India has shaken the faith of not only Kashmiris but every conscience bearing citizen. While addressing public meetings at Lawoosa, Khudi and other places in Handwara today Er. Rasheed said that Bar council has exposed itself by claiming that its investigation has not found Bar Council guilty and also by supporting CBI probe. Er. Rasheed said that one has every reason to believe that after huge worldwide hue and cry, Bar council of India was send Kuthua under a well-crafted plan to defuse the situation and ultimately defend the culprits who have shamed their profession. He said “It is unfortunate that the team of Bar Council of India which visited Kuthua turned blind eye towards the shameful incidents which took place on the day when challan was produced and everything was in public domain. Bar council even ignored the report of Principal District Judge who had confirmed that Crime Branch was prevented from producing Challan before CJM by Kuthua Bar. It is evident that the Bar Council of India had an agenda to restore the credibility and dignity of the goons of Kuthua Bar. It looks laughable when Bar Council of India accuses media of misrepresenting the reports about victim’s lawyer, Deepika Singh, being prevented and threatened by the lawyers body. May one ask the distinguished members of Bar Council of India how did Indian media became so biased overnight which would otherwise often get huge praises from the lawyers and even hon’ble judges for downplaying the state terrorism and atrocities on Kashmiris. Didn’t Supreme Court got influenced by the false propaganda of the national media in Major Adatiya’s case and stayed FIR against him accused of sending innocent Kashmiris in Shopian to grave. Bar council of India needs to be reminded of its biased approach towards Kashmiris, as it is like conquering Himalaya to get a good lawyer for a Kashmiri in any part of India ”. Er. Rasheed added that the Bar Council of India’s giving clean chit to Kuthua lawyers and supporting a CBI probe has proved all those forces right who don’t expect Indian courts to do justice with Muslims especially Kashmiris. He said “While national parties, legal experts and international organizations have been showing their worry about the functioning of Indian Judiciary, Bar Council of India by preferring to side with the goons has proved that how deep rooted communal forces have infiltrated even in the temple of justice. It seems that Bar Council of India has no problem in tri-color being used to defend the rapists and murderers and doing any damn thing with Jammu Muslims is a matter of pride and national interest for them”. Er. Rasheed appealed world community to play its role in protecting the life, dignity and honour of minority community in Jammu and delivering justice to 8 year old victim. Reacting to Supreme Court’s staying trial of the case Er. Rasheed appealed Supreme Court to constitute a fast trail court which should hear the case in Kashmir as not only the lawyer of the victim but the family of victim also feel threats in entire Jammu province.
