Asking state DGP not to forget that police and other security agencies claim to be law abiding agencies, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has sharply reacted to DGP’s warning to militants, asking them not to forget that they too have families.
In a statement issued today, Er. Rasheed said “undoubtedly the families of militants and police cops should not be tortured or harassed by either of the sides but the state DGP needs to be reminded that it is the section of police officers who have been so brutal towards relatives and families of militants since long.
Infact one of the core reasons of youth joining militancy has been the humiliating behaviour, torture and atrocities carried out by security forces especially J&K police on the relatives of militants. Who doesn’t know that how brutal a section of police has been towards even common men for expressing their views on political issues.
What state DGP has threatened, by asking militants not to forget that they too have families, has exposed the claims of JK Police of being a disciplined and law abiding force. Should DGP and other top cops answer that if militants break the law of the land does it permit or justify that police will follow them. Although what DGP has threatened is already being executed on ground but his direct threat has yet again confirmed that there is complete Jungle Raj in the state and Kashmiris have no rights, whosoever”.
Er. Rasheed appealed the families of police officers not to forget that they are part of the society and resolution to Kashmir dispute is in the interests of everyone including the local police cops, as such the families of police officers are morally duty bound to advice their near and dear ones serving in police not to cross red lights or forget that they are first sons of the soil, before being something else
