Hurriyat is custodian of rights of Kashmir, Modi shouldn’t hide behind words: Rasheed

Srinagar: Appealing to the people to stay vigilant, Langate lawmaker Engineer Rasheed on Sunday asked not to give any heed to defamation campaign against Hurriyat by New Delhi.

“Hurriyat is the custodian of rights and sacrifices of Kashmiris,” he said while addressing a gathering at Awoora Kupwara on Sunday.

Reacting to Prime Minister Narender Modi’s revelations that dialogue is the only way forward to resolve various issues all across the globe, MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that the statement doesn’t carry any substance unless words are transformed into action.

Rasheed said “action speaks always louder than words and Modi ji has very often given sermons over issues after it is too late. His response to cow vigilantes and other radical elements in India has been too late and too small.”

Rasheed added that he has never spoken a direct word on having a meaningful dialogue to resolve long pending dispute of J&K. “Modi Ji’s claim that India believes in Tarka shestra (Debate) has become irrelevant in current scenario for the reason that New Delhi has crushed all the saner voices not only in Kashmir but all across India. The way he has used various agencies against his political opponents everywhere, has become black chapter of India’s history.”

“Let Modi Ji not mislead anyone by talking about Tarka Shestra, as the tradition of debate and discussion Modi Ji has talked about has been replaced by Chanakya theory of dealing with big issues,” said Rasheed and added that “ New Delhi has used dialogue to prolong the issues and get those tired who expect justice through the institution of dialogue, thus eroding the credibility of institution of dialogue itself”.

Er. Rasheed in his address asked PM not to hide behind words and come forward to resolve the political dispute of J&K by giving Kashmiris right to self-determination and must also resolve other burning issues including Babri Masjid dispute if he means business.
