Srinagar: Awami Itehad Party (AIP) President Er. Rasheed has said that will New Delhi answer if it will show same anger and anguish towards the people of Maharashtra, it showed towards Kashmiris after the Pulwama attack?
“While the attack is condemnable, New Delhi needs to introspect and answer certain serious and tough questions. Can New Delhi answer if it will show same anger and anguish towards the people of Maharashtra, it showed towards Kashmiris after the Pulwama attack? Will Maharashtrains be attacked the same way, Kashmiris were attacked in rest of the India and will the high ways be closed in the same manner Jammu Srinagar High Way is closed twice a week?” Er. Rasheed asked New Delhi to answer that why the religion of the attackers is not being linked with the attackers who attacked and killed fifteen commandos in Maharashtra.
“Whenever any incident takes place in Kashmir New Delhi makes huge hue and cry not only in the country but across the world but why it keeps mum if more heinous attacks taken place in Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, West Bengal or other places. Is life of those killed in Maharashtra attack less important than the life of Jawans killed in Pulwama attack. Kashmiris have a right to answer that why AFSPA is not being put in place in Naxal hit states and why are not draconian laws like PSA being imposed in these states”. Er. Rasheed while expressing sympathy with the families of killed police Jawans in Maharashtra reiterated that every human life is precious and there is no justification to violence neither by state nor by non-state actors.
