Srinagar: AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed while felicitating Tajamul Islam, ten year old world champion in boxing, has said that Kashmiris have proved against all odds their talent and worth.
While speaking at an impressive function attended by journalists, educationists and prominent citizens at Solace International school Pulwama today Er. Rasheed said in statement issued to PTK “Despite the fact that the political conflict has snatched most of the joys from people of Kashmir, they have still proved that they can complete any nation or any society with their skill and talent.
The little Tajamul has added to the list of those who have made Kashmiris proud across the globe. Kashmiris have a reason to feel honored and proud When people like Basharat Pir have made it to the world’s most prestigious organization ‘The New York Times’. The facts and figures will reveal that Kashmiri doctors, business men Engineers and scientists have contributed not less than what other nations have done in various fields across globe”.
However Rashid said that since the turmoil that is on since 1990 has snatched people like Nadeem of Handwara, who were seen as budding Sachin Tendulkar, Newton from Tral, Er. Rayees from Kakapora Pulwama and hundreds like them who were sure to create history in their respective fields. He said while Sonia Gandhi, Narander Modi, Mehbooba Mufti, Indian Army and many others have rightly congratulated Tajamul but need to apologize for blinding, maiming, tourchering, killing and Jailing hundreds of Tajamuls. May these Hippocrates answer who and what compelled people like Zakir Rashid and Sabzar Ahmad to choose gun rather being admitted in world’s prestigious institutions”.
