Er. Rasheed detained and deported from Banihal: Spokesman

SRINAGAR AUGUST 10 2018

 Police and CRPF today detained AIP President Er. Rasheed at Banihal and deported him back to Kashmir while he was on a three day tour to Jammu province to express solidarity with Jammu Muslims and to grab support for advocate Talib currently in Police custody

In a statement issue today party spokesman Advocate Majid Banday said that Er. Rasheed was to address several public meetings in Jammu province and was supposed to address a gathering at Banihal after Friday prayers today, however a heavy contingent of police and CRPF detained Er. Raheed at the other side of  Jawahar Tunnel and didn’t allow him to proceed further.

Spokesman while condemning the police action has said that the Muslims in Jammu have been left to the mercy of communal goons and biased police force. Spokesman further said “It is unfortunate that the genuine voice of people is being suppressed and whosoever intends to raise his voice against the atrocities is forced to either shut the mouth or his movement is restricted.

AIP leadership will never scum to these dirty tactics but will continue to speak for deprived masses cutting across regional, religious and ethnic affiliations.

The state administration must understand that by disrespecting voice of elected people New Delhi is disgracing itself and Er. Rasheed is exposing the myth of Indian democracy facing all odds. Spokesman assured people of Jammu that entire Kashmiri nation are at the back of Jammu Muslims who are facing state sponsored terror only to increase the vote bank of BJP. (PTK)
