Srinagar 01 Aug: Asking National Media, Security agencies and political establishment not to celebrate killing of Abu Dujana, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that the reaction from masses in entire Kashmir after the killing deserves and needs serious introspection. In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “The way people took out to streets at various places after Abu Dujana’s killing should be a matter of shame for those who try to portray the killing as their success, ignoring that their terrorists are Hero’s of masses. Abu Dujana being a foreign national, the response to his killing should be cause of more concern as Kashmiris mourning death of a foreign militant is ample to understand which side people stand. Let Govt. answer that despite declaring a reward of 15.00 Lacs over head of a foreign national and carrying huge propaganda against him on national media, Govt. was forced to shut internet and thus proving that it is Dujana not the security forces, who enjoys popular public support. Killing militants has never been the solution and those celebrating deaths are the biggest dividends of the uprising since 1990. Let the security agencies not mislead Indian masses by claiming every killing a grand success and putting just one side of the story in the public domain, thus ignoring that every drop of blood strengthens anti-India sentiment and gives new oxygen to resistance movement in Jammu & Kashmir”.
