Er Rasheed asks Army authorities to come clean over torture on Shopian man
Says Supreme Court should seek action taken report and details of
FIR’s lodged against those attacking kashmiri’s.


Srinagar, 22 Feb: Claiming that words about Kashmir and
kashmiri’s being spoken by top Indian leadership do not match to what
is happening on the ground, AIP Supremo Er Rasheed has appealed
political and military leadership of India not to add salt to the
injuries of kashmiri’s. In a statement issued today Er Rasheed said,
“it looks nice when Home Minister Rajnath Singh makes a claim that
Kashmir and kashmiri’s were, are and will remain ours but on the other
hand giving security forces free hand to do what they want to do with
unarmed kashmiri’s and down playing attacks and hatredness against
kashmiri’s throughout India negates Home Ministers claim. While army
is at rampage in south Kashmir, to travel on roads from Kupwara to
Qazigund is becoming almost impossible as the vehicular movement is
being interrupted every moment in the name of ensuring protection to
army vehicles. In South Kashmir not only youth but elders including
men and women are being subjected to torture and humiliation and
nobody cares. The relatives of militants are facing huge threats to
their lives and despite knowing that whosoever joins militant ranks
does not take any permission from the parents, atrocities on their
families are at peak. Army commanders should answer that what was the
fault of Ishaq Ah Lone a resident of Rawalpora Shopian who has been
tortured so severely that no human hearted person can even bear to see
him. His only fault is that his brother has reportedly joined
millants. The law enforcing agencies are doing nothing but are hand in
glow with those who commit atrocities on unarmed civilians. When
security agencies and New Delhi want kashmiri’s to condemn attacks on
security forces, they need to answer that why do not authorities take
notice of shameful atrocities on kashmiri’s.” Er Rasheed while
reacting to Supreme Court direction asking states to take care of
kashmiri’s in their respective states, said that there is nothing
worth enjoying what Supreme Court has asked for, as the law enforcing
agencies in the states are being controlled by those who are directly
involved in attacks against kashmiri’s. He said, “It would have been
to some extent satisfactory had Supreme Court sought action taken
details and measures against the goons attacking kashmiri’s. Supreme
Court should have asked details about FIR’s lodged against those who
attacked kashmiri’s everywhere, deported them back and vandalized
their properties. While hundreds of kashmiri’s have been beaten to
pulp, not even a single person has been arrested so far in any part of
the country and what can be more unfortunate than the fact that people
holding highest offices do ask Indian’s to boycott kashmiri’s and thus
negate themselves Home Minister’s claim that kashmiri’s are our own
people.”
