Srinagar: Appealing to the people of India to seek answers from their leaders, news channels and hate-mongers on how long mothers in India and Jammu & Kashmir will continue to receive coffins of their loved ones, AIP president and MLA Langate Engineer Rashid has reiterated that every incident is a wake-up call to resolve the dispute of J&K as per UN resolutions.
Reacting to the militant attack on an army administrative unit in Uri, Er Rashid said, “While from the prime minister to the home minister, Indian leaders are rightly busy in discussing the Uri attack in New Delhi, the defence minister and the army chief have wasted no time to land in Srinagar after the incident. However, even a layman has a right to know that before abusing Pakistan vis-a-vis the attack, why doesn’t New Delhi answer if Pakistani rangers facilitated entry of militants to Kashmir, what was Indian Army monitoring at the LoC? There is always a multi-tier security cordon in and around army camps and if militants have managed to break security barricades yet again, security agencies have a lot to answer. While Indian media and politicians have every right to mourn the death of 17 army men in Uri, they need not to forget that these army men lost their lives while fighting to their rivals who were equally armed. But when unarmed common Kashmiris fell to the pellets and bullets of the armed forces, the pain and blood goes unnoticed from news studios to PM’s office. Narender Modi, Rajnath Singh, Manohar Parakar or Gen Suhag have enough time to abuse Pakistan and Kashmiris while condoling death of 17 well trained and well equipped soldiers, but their hearts turn into stones when 11 years old Nasir Shafi Qazi of Harwan Srinagar or 21 years old Basit Mukhtar of Pulwama lose their lives to the brutality of terrorists in Uniform”.
He added, “Let Govt of India understand that it’s crying victim after every incident has no takers in the civilised world. GoI has not only played foul with Pakistan in the name of dialogue but has eroded the credibility of all those including mainstream and Hurriyat leaders and militant commanders who dared to talk to New Delhi for permanent peace. This dubious attitude of New Delhi has resulted in death and destruction form Uri to streets of Srinagar. New Delhi should understand that successive prime ministers from JL Nehru to Narendra Modi are responsible for death of every Indian solider, a common Kashmiri, and the ones who are forced to take arms in their hands. Unless the Govt of India will not realise the fact that Kashmiris can’t be deprived of Right to Self Determination, mothers will continue to receive coffins from Kanyakumari to Uri.”
