Srinagar, Feb 14: Independent leader and MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Wednesday said that New Delhi must own the moral responsibility of all these people killed during Sujwan fidayeen attack in Jammu.
Addressing the gathering in the native villages of Habib Ullah Qureshi and Mohammad Ashraf at Haihama and Maidanpora Lolab, district Kupwara Rasheed rejected the propaganda being carried out by a section of National Media while trying to give the Notion that participation in the funerals of army men reflects a change in the mindset of Kashmiris.
”Kashmiris never supported violence and it was always thrust upon the people of Kashmir and they were very often pushed to a position where some took to violence as a means to make their voice on Kashmiri issue heard. Whosoever gets killed Kashmiris as human beings and Muslims feel the pain. It is again the Indian National Media which has been shameful in projecting the killings of local Kashmiri army men in a way that would create confusions within Kashmiri society and give the incident a communal colour,” the spokesman quoted Er Rasheed saying.
Rasheed said that even if the army men would have been Non-Kashmiris the inner feelings of the majority of Kashmiris would have been almost the same. It is the real spirit of Kashmiriyat and the religious obligations to offer and participate in the last rites of the army men, unlike the security agencies who have been so brutal that they bury the dead bodies of slain militants at unknown places even without offering their last rites properly. As such interpreting participation of locals in the funerals of army men is the worst kind of stupidity.
