Srinagar: Awami Ittehad Chief Engineer Rashid in a statement on Friday said that the twitter spat between Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti is a ‘moral victory’ for the militants.
After PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti visited the families of slain militants in South Kashmir, NC Vice President Omar had said that the ‘Architect of Operation All-Out’ is trying to rehabilitate a badly damaged reputation.
Mehbooba, in a tweet, after her visit had said:
No mother wants her son to pick up a gun and lose his life in the prime of his youth. Therefore harassing the family is not going to help the situation . Had my initiative of cease fire sustained many more precious lives would have been saved .

Rashid, in his statement added that the truth and the circumstances are pushing two former Chief Ministers to show sympathy with those whom they killed “mercilessly.”
“Be it Mehbooba Mufti visiting slain militant’s family or Omer Abdullah accusing her of being architect of ‘Operation All Out’, every word and action is ample proof to conclude that militants are enjoying huge popular support and the propaganda to label them as terrorists has no takers in Kashmir,” said Rashid.
He said both Mehbooba and Omar were trying to regain their “lost ground” by praising militants and talking about atrocities on their families.
“No doubt it is for the masses to decide whether to believe the cunning and hypocritical words of Omar and Mehbooba but the fact is that their exchange of arguments and the debate so generated has itself proved that both the former Chief Ministers don’t have their any narrative, ideology or a vision but are just trying to regain their lost ground by praising militants and talking about atrocities on their families, without feeling any shame for the reason both of them have been ruthless in carrying genocide of Kashmiris,” he said.
Moreover, Peoples Conference chief Sajad Lone had said that both the dynasties are ‘winking on twitter hoodwinking en masse’.
