Srinagar: AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rashid today said he led a five member party delegation and met Home Minister of India Rajnath Singh and made it clear that the only solution to resolve Kashmir Dispute and bring peace is to hold plebiscite on both sides of LoC.
According to a AIP statement to PTK, the deputation had a 40 minute long meeting with the Home Minister this morning and during the discussion Er Rashid made it clear that seeking right to self determination doesn’t violate constitution of India and nor it amounts to separatism.
Er Rashid said that Govt. of India needs to understand that passing the buck and avoiding the resolution is the only reason why Jammu & Kashmir is bleeding since 1947.
Er Rashid asked Rajnath Sigh that those who talk to New Delhi with an apologetic and appeasement stand are neither helping India nor Kashmiris but just want to rule the state by keeping Indian state in complete dark.
He rejected the allegations that Jammu region was facing discrimination and said that from civil secretariat to police department and from judiciary to ordinary govt services, the number of Muslims has been shrinked to intolerable level and added that people of state do never want any solution on communal lines nor has majority community ever been communal.
Advocating the argument, Er Rashid said that despite being 70% Muslim dominated State, Muslims get killed in J&K and it is perhaps the only place in the world where people from the majority community have been suffering from 70 years.
Er Rashid asked Rajnath Singh that all those formulas seeking restoration of autonomy or something else has no takers in J&K and those who claim that Jammu province doesn’t subscribe to what is happening in Kashmir are just misleading themselves as if just a particular community in two and half districts doesn’t speak about plebiscite, it doesn’t mean that people of whole region agree to their view point.
He said he made it clear to the Home Minister that what so ever is happening in J&K, is not Pakistan sponsored, misdeed of certain miscreants, paid elements, law and order problem, unemployment or handy work of some annoyed people but a mass uprising and everyone is seeking freedom on streets. (PTK)
