Er Rashid dares Hurriyat to count its achievements

Srinagar: Independent MLA from Langate constituency, Engineer Rashid Wednesday said that Kashmiris have not offered sacrifices for any interim arrangement but for a permanent solution to the Kashmir issue.
After visiting Laiser village to express solidarity with the family of Ashiq Hussain who was killed by the Army last week, Rashid asked both factions of the Hurriyat to inform people about their achievements so far. “People have every right to know what their sacrifices have yielded so far and what the Hurriyat which claims to be the representative of the sentiments of the people have achieved vis-à-vis resolution of the Kashmir issue,” he said.
According to KNS, Rashid said that Kashmiris have not sacrificed for Autonomy, Self Rule or Bijli, Sadak, Pani but for permanent resolution of Kashmir issue.
He said that a long lasting and practicable solution of the Kashmir problem was not possible until a serious dialogue is initiated and stake holders like United Jihad Council is included in it.
The MLA Langate said that the killing of Ashiq Hussain speaks volumes about the security an ordinary Kashmiri possess. “Government of India should explain what happened to its promise of zero tolerance for human rights in Kashmir. The central government and the state government owes an explanation to people that if an innocent person like Ashiq can be killed inside his home what can be the fate of rest of the people living in other far flung areas?” he asked.
The MLA Langate appealed people to create their own Bait-ul-Maal in every village so that an immediate relief is extended to any family in the hour of grief.
Meanwhile, Rsheed paid Rs 50,000 cash relief to the bereaved family on behalf of his Joint Effort Trust. He emphasized the need of local relief committies and appealed the people for establishment of such bodies in every area so that the needy could get help in case natural or unnatural calamities.
