Srinagar, Oct 2: Taking a jibe at politicians celebrating the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Awami Itihad Party (AIP) president and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed said “Gandhi’s philosophy has been taken over by Hitler’s mindset.”
In a statement Er. Rasheed said “While entire world desperately needs to follow Gandhian philosophy of non-violence, Gandhi’s own soil is being blood bathed and violence has become the epicenter of Indian politics. May Narendra Modi answer before paying tributes to Gandhi, why his forces have been given license to kill Kashmiris only for seeking a peaceful resolution to Kashmir dispute. Not only Gandhi’s Gujrat has changed but the majoritarian view point is being threshed upon all the minorities and this mindset has turned entire India into a place where everyone is fighting for protecting his honor, dignity and fundamental rights. Dalits being compared with dogs and Muslims being threatened and asked to migrate to Pakistan definitely might be paining Gandhi’s soul every minute. Not only Narendra Modi but the Nehru family too want power at all costs forgetting that Mahatma Gandhi did not got any post for himself despite being the icon of India’s freedom struggle against Britishers. May today’s Suit Boot Netas in India just ask where they have buried Gandhi Ji’s Gujrati Dhoti and replaced the same with foreign made suits”.
Er Rasheed reminded those ultranationalists who have been demonizing Muslims and calling them radicals for talking about caliphate, not to forget that Gandhi Ji was himself a strong advocate of caliphate movement and never found it based on hatred or overpowering the other religions.
He said “Gandhi Ji’s love for human beings and respect to human lives truly made him all time icon but in his own country those who praise him and call him their role model have been butchering the people of Kashmir, a place where Gandhi Ji claimed to have found a ray of light for the communal harmony displayed by its citizens. When cows turn more precious than human lives and being Muslim becomes a crime the meaning of celebrating Gandhi Jayanti become a cruel joke. It is high time for the people of India to introspect and analyze to find how could India return to great values of tolerance, inclusiveness and brotherhood.
