Speaker’s comments on Rohingya refugees unfortunate: Er Rasheed

 

Srinagar, Feb 11: Urging India and Pakistan to show dynamism and give up the violence at borders and within J&K, AIP has reiterated that every violent incident yields nothing except loss of lives.
While interacting with various deputations in Srinagar Sunday Party Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed asked Narendra Modi to rise to the occasion rather getting trapped in blame game.
Er. Rasheed said that while political leadership has failed to understand the necessity of a political resolution, just playing with the sentiment of people and giving attack on army camp in Sunjwan Jammu a communal color speaks volumes about the lust of power among politicians.
Er. Rasheed condemned speaker Kavinder Gupta’s statement in which he tried to attack Rohangies and Bangladeshi refugees by suspecting their hand in the attack.
He said “One has a right to ask Gupta that if none of the security agencies had raised any finger towards rohingya refugees or someone else how could Gupta know anything. It seems that he and other likeminded people had already made up their mind against refugees and used the incident to fulfill their intentions, which is unacceptable”.
Er. Rasheed also lashed out at NC leadership for continuing with its politics of double standards and exploitation. He said “While one member from the party raised pro-Pakistan slogan in assembly, it took Farooq Abdullah and others just few seconds to distance themselves from what its member spoke in assembly. Farooq Abdullah directly attacked Pakistan for sending militants and even threatened a war. It has been the tradition that first someone from NC or PDP says something that touches hearts of people and then others distance off themselves from the statement thus trying to keep all relevant quarters happy, which is worst kind of exploitation.”
Er. Rasheed added that one has every reason to blame New Delhi for keeping the game of death and destruction on for the reason that everything lies with New Delhi and it always blames Kashmiris, Pakistan and everyone else except itself. “Loss of lives is always unfortunate and no words, homage or compensation heals the wounds of the family. Not only the soldiers but the militants and the common masses have been forced to a situation where they have become fuel of an unending war and if Modi shows statesmanship he is full of potential to change the discourse from desperation to hope in the entire sub-continent. If Modi tries to play his role for resolution of Palestenian issue, he must first concentrate to stop bloodshed in J&K and resolve the dispute forever,” Er. Rasheed added.
