SRINAGAR: Students, scholars, teachers and people from different walks of life joined solidarity march with Kashmiris held in Jawaharlal Nehru University campus in Indian capital New Delhi on Friday evening.
The event was organized by All India Students Association (AISA) and supported by various student organisations.
Independent legislator from Jammu and Kashmir’s Langate constituency, Er Abdul Rasheed, claimed to have addressed the gathering. He appreciated the concern shown by the participants and appealed the masses to come forward and ‘save the humanity’ in Kashmir.
Rasheed, according to a statement issued to media, said “Let people of India understand that we are not enemies of India and want a political resolution to the dispute in light of UN resolution.”
“The people of India are being mislead by their successive government and it leaves no stone unturned to hide ugly atrocities on Kashmiris,” the legislator said. “Whatsoever is being said inside and outside parliament is nothing but an desperate attempt to buy time and delay the resolution to Kashmir dispute.”
Rasheed appealed think tanks, scholars and young Indian masses to ask New Delhi not to kill Kashmiris in the name of national interest and added that whatsoever is happening in Kashmir is an “indigenous mass uprising against India’s history of broken promises.”
Besides others Shehla Rashid Shora, Umar Khalid and Prof. Shuddhabrata Sengupta reportedly addressed the gathering.
