Accusing police and civil administration of becoming like “Over Ground Worker’s of Sang Parivar and other anti-Kashmir forces”, Awami Itthad Party (AIP) chief and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has condemned barring Friday prayers in the Jamia Masjid Srinagar for the second consecutive week.
In a statement issued to Brighter Kashmir, Er. Rasheed said “It is strange that government is doing everything to facilitate Amarnath Yatra and ensure their safe journey but state subjects are being deprived of their religious rights.”
Er Rasheed said, “While government itself claims that Yatra is under threat of militants but still makes it uninterrupted for weeks to gather, it is shameful that it can’t ensure Friday prayers which take hardly an hour or so to complete, despite there being no threat against devotees”.
He added that “Govt. has been more than cruel not only to common Kashmiris but to elderly Geelani and spiritual and religious leader Mir Waiz Omer Farooq by curbing their fundamental and religious freedom.”
Er Rasheed said “those preaching every time safeguarding and respecting dignity and honour of the women fail to answer why state is so scared of Asiya Indrabi that she has been jailed in a miserable cell at Jammu Jail”.
He rejected constituting of Special investigating Team (SIT) by J&K Police, “for the reason that the security agencies are themselves under the clout of doubt over the incident.”
Er Rasheed said “It would have been proper to investigate the incident through some credible international agency, but New Delhi will never allow that as it has nothing to defend. However if it could use NIA to humiliate resistance leaders for political ambitions, for the sake of investigation it should have handed over the investigation to NIA. Kashmiris reject any investigation to be carried out by SIT as they truly have lost faith in the credibility, sincerity and professionalism of security forces”.
