Security agencies fabricating stories to justify acts of state terrorism: Er. Rasheed
Visits Tujar Sharief, seeks release of innocent youth
Sopore, August 19: Appealing security agencies not to cross ‘red line’, AIP President, Er. Rasheed visited Tujar Sharief and adjoining areas in spore claiming that security agencies had vandalized properties and arrested around twenty youth during nocturnal raids here.
A press release issued here said that Rasheed while addressing people said that New Delhi had lost the ‘moral fight’ and was using men in uniform to destroy the self respect and the will of people. “What PM Narindra Modi said on the occasion of Independence Day was losing relevance as men in uniform are leaving no stone unturned to humiliate and harm unarmed citizens. The people of Kashmir- from north to south- are being targeted for supporting the resistance movement and forces despite knowing that Kashmiris want a resolution without violence are provoking them,” the press release quoted Rasheed as saying.
Refuting what he termed as ‘claims of tolerance’ by state police chief from time to time he alleged that security agencies had become habitual of ‘fabricating stories to justify their high handedness’ and asked local cops not to forget that they were “sons of the soil and shall have to pay for their illegal and terrorizing act sooner or later”.
Appealing masses not to lose hope, Rasheed asked Governor to investigate the involvement of security forces in vandalized property in Tujar area alleging that people, irrespective of their gender and age, here were beaten, humiliated and threatened. He also urged Sopore police to release all innocent youth arrested during the raids in Tujar and adjoining areas.
