Er Rasheed dragged from his bedroom to police station: AIP
Srinagar, February 03 :
AIP has strongly condemned police assault on Er Rasheed and said that such horrible and shameful attacks will not break the will of AIP cadres, as the party is committed to fight politically for the right to self-determination, the birth right of people of Jammu & Kashmir.
In a statement party spokesperson, Sheeban Ashai said, “Er Rasheed was put under house arrest throughout the day at his Jawahar Nagar residence and on Saturday evening a heavy contingent of masked men in uniform entered his house forcibly and bundled family members including women and children in the kitchen.”
The spokesperson said, “The shameless act is a desperate attempt to break the will and hurt self-respect of Er Rasheed but such cheap tactics will fail as usual, as AIP is not an underground organization but represents sentiments, sacrifices and aspirations of Kashmiri people.”
He added that while Prime Minister Narendra Modi was busy in misleading the world community from SKICC Srinagar, entire Kashmir looked deserted and Kashmiris by a total shutdown have conveyed loud and clear that the only way to bring peace in the entire subcontinent is to give people of J&K on both sides of LOCs right to self-determination as promised at United Nation by India and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Er Rasheed was shifted to Sub-Jail Kothibagh Srinagar this morning and continues to be lodged there, said AIP spokesman in a statement.
