Jammu: January 28: AIP Supremo and MLA Langate, Er. Rasheed today
while participating on grants pertaining to Home department blasted
Indian state for forcing main stream parties especially NC and PDP to
act like extension wings and collaborators of Indian colonial
occupation and added that struggle of Kashmiri nation is not for
revoking AFSPA, PSA banning pallet guns, restoration of Autonomy but
purely a movement for right to self determination. In his hard hitting
speech Er. Rasheed said that people of the state were expecting a
Razia Sultana in Mehbooba Mufti but Nagpur drew her other way. While
appreciating Mehbooba for showing deep love for her 82 year old father
Late Mufti Sahab, Er. Rasheed asked her that what she has to parents
of those 18 year kids whom she forced to shoulder coffins of their
beloved kids. Er. Rasheed said “While people are talking about so
called special status, no state flag flies over State High Court,
Kashmir House and other prestigious places despite the fact the High
Court Judges take oath under State constitution. If New Delhi couldn’t
respect sentiments of iron lady of Munipur Arim Sharmeela, why should
we beg for revocation of AFSPA. Infact we will never demand revoking
AFSPA and PSA as world must know India has failed to win hearts and
minds of people of J&K and is ruling the state through these dirty
laws and at the barrel of gun. We would not seek Judicial probes and
enquiry commissions as they have yielded nothing and we know well
those who seek right to self determination have to face this all. A
place where police, Army and other security agencies do celebrate
deaths of humans expecting to get promotions and privileges, should
not expect justice and seek fundamental rights”. Er. Rasheed strongly
advocated handing over of mosques which are locked for one reason or
the other in Jammu providence to Jammu Muslims. Raising his strong
voice for minorities in Jammu Er. Rasheed asked Mehbooba to explain
what happened to killers of Jasjeet Singh killed on anniversary of
Bindranwala, why are killers of 18 Sikhs yet un punished, where are
killers of Chatti Singhpora massacre, what happened to Pathribal
probe, why doesn’t family of Ishtiyak Chowdhary Mohammad Yaqoob and
other Muslims get justice who were killed by Sang Parivar goons, why
are Muslims of Jammu being harassed for even seeking Sadak, Paani and
Bijli and why are RSS goons free to carry armed parades. Er. Rasheed
came down heavily on Mehbooba Mufti for termination service of 12
employees and said that if speaking about sentiment is enough to
terminate jobs of people, then Spokesman of collation Govt. Nayeem
Akhter should be Jailed. Asking Mehbooba Mufti to explain whether your
spokesman is Iffat Khan, Satar Wagay, Basharat Suroor who had been in
the past writing and talking about the sentiment or is he really the
same Nayeem Akhter who has been humiliating teacher community
everyday. He also raised quires about investigation of murder of two
brothers of Thana Mandi and also expressed great displeasure over FIR
being not lodged against those who killed a 20 year Muslim youth in
Ponch some time back. Er. Rasheed asked that what was the fault of
Shabir shah of Jammu who is languishing in Jail since last six months.
He asked house that why doesn’t assembly collect courage to implement
the resettlement bill passed in 1982 in letter and spirit. Er. Rasheed
reminded Mehbooba that while she believes everyone a conspirator
except herself, may she answer what was the conspiracy that tri colour
fell down on eve of 15th August at Bhakshi Stadium. Er. Rasheed sought
re-construction of Masjid in the premises of civil secretariat Jammu.
He reminded Mehbooba of her promises about making report of Handwara
massacre that had left five people killed last year public. Er.
Rasheed reminded Mehbooba of Aasia and Neelofar and said that their
souls are in search of same Mehbooba who used to make much hue and cry
about that tragedy. Asking Mehbooba Mufti to learn lessons from Tamil
Nadu Assembly Er. Rasheed asked members of the house to introspect and
find that if Tamil Nadu Assembly can turn down supreme court orders to
continue cruel Jeli Katu tradition, why has J&K Assembly become a
liability on people of state. Er. Rasheed asked Mehbooba Mufti to
implement the decision of naming Srinagar Airport as Sheikh-ul-Alam
Airport or we will change the sign board ourselves. Narrating stories
of state terrorism, Er. Rasheed cited two examples of hardcore
militants namely Bashir Ahmad Wani @ Bashir Lashkar and Abas sheikh @
Hameed and narrated the huge inhuman atrocities on the families of
these two militants which added to their conviction of fighting Indian
occupation through armed struggle. While pointing towards state DGP
and other top rank officers, who were in the officers gallery, Er.
Rasheed asked them that Kashmiris will launch a mass movement to
ensure that you get noble prize, if in future you will hit us with
pallets but not to blind us but to hit our legs.
