Srinagar: AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed while commenting on Narender Modi’s comments on Kashmir, has said that Kashmiris were not waiting for all these days to listen from Mr Modi that India enjoys Aazadi and Kashmiris can also enjoy it.
He said Modi and every Indian needs to be remembered that if Modi’s interpretation of Aazadi is accepted, then Indian’s were enjoying more Aazadi under British’s rule than after getting freedom in 1947.
He said that Modi’s speech has rendered Kashmiris hopeless and it has no takers. Er Rasheed said that Mehbooba Mufti and others hailing Vajpayee should tell the people of J&K what was Vajpayee’s solution to Kashmir dispute and what did he mean by saying Jamhuriyat, Kashmiriyat and Insaniyat.
In a statement issued today Er Rasheed said that many mouth pieces of New Dehli have been misleading since long by reciting Vajpayee’s slogan but never say if Vajpayee had assured publicly or behind curtains implementation of UN Resolutions or some other respectable formula that could match sacrifices of Kashmiri people. Er Rasheed also appealed Indian Parliamentarians to clear their confusions about the purpose of their visit to Kashmir.
Er Rasheed said, “Anybody who speaks for oppressed people of Kashmir deserves respect but whatsoever Indian parliamentarians and political parties have been speaking in and outside Parliament is enough to understand that Indians want simply restoration of law and order and don’t want even discuss the dispute in its historic perspective.
The political parties should first decide in New Dehli what they have to offer to Kashmiris if they come here for talks and if they just want to bail out India by simply requesting Kashmiris to help in returning normalcy without discussing concrete proposals for talks to resolve the dispute in light of its historic perspective, then nobody is ready to receive them.”
Er Rasheed also asked PM Narender Modi and ultra nationalist Indian media and politicians that if Narender Modi visits to pay homage to Chander Shekhar Azad on eve of his 70th birthday, how come can they label Burhan and other Kashmiri militants as terrorists and what is the difference between Chander Shekhar Azad and Burhan.
Er Rasheed said that PM’s visit to Azad’s birth place is itself a contradiction of his claims that somebody’s terrorist cannot be freedom fighter for others and added that India must confess either Chander Shekhar Azad too was a terrorist or all Kashmiri militants including Burhan are martyrs.(GNS)
