Cease fire is victory of Kashmiri..Er. Rasheed


Asks New Delhi to walk more extra miles

Langate 16 May: Welcoming centre’s declaration of a unilateral cease fire with the militant outfits, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that the move is a much needed beginning to resolve the long pending dispute which has claimed nearly one lac. Lives. Addressing an impressive function at Mandigam Langate today Er. Rasheed said that the decision taken by New Delhi vindicates stand of Kashmiris and it is proven now that the militants are not terrorists and good sense has begun to prevail in New Delhi. Er. Rasheed said “The centre’s decision has proved that militants enjoy public support and eliminating them makes them more stronger. The unilateral ceasefire is victory of Kashmiris but t the same time it should not be seen as defeat of the other side. New Delhi being the major party to the dispute must move now beyond the ceasefire and offer unconditional talks to United Jihad Counsel and Huriyat leadership and then start tripartite talks between all the three stake holders. It is moral obligation of New Delhi to respect its commitment of declaring unilateral ceasefire. However unless New Delhi doesn’t walk few more extra miles not much may change on the ground as Kashmiris have not sacrificed for the ceasefire or autonomy or any resolution outside UN resolutions but for right to self determination, which is their birth right. Er. Rasheed asked militant leadership to try and gain the genuine dividends of ceasefire by showing maturity and responding with positivity to New Delhi’s move. He added that any reaction in hesitation will give New Delhi an excuse to run away from the real issue. Er. Rasheed appealed all political parties not to waste time but try to move beyond ceasefire by asking New Delhi to start the dialogue with Pakistan and militant leadership for the final settlement after dispute.
