‘Maqbool Bhat, Afzal Guru not terrorists but brave sons of soil’: Er Rasheed

 Srinagar, Feb 9, : Despite strict restrictions, the Awami Itihaad Party (AIP) delegation led by party president Er Rasheed today visited the residence of Mohammad Afzal Guru at Seer Jageer in Sopore area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla to offer the homage to him and his family.

The spokesman quoting Rashee said that the hanging of Guru and Bhat were “judicial murders” and New Delhi has nothing to justify what it did with Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru not only when they were alive but was more brutal to them after their hanging.

“It is a dark page of the history that Tamil Nadu Assembly passed a resolution seeking clemency for killers of Rajiv Gandhi but J&K Assembly sabotaged the resolution moved by Rasheed seeking clemency for Afzal Guru. It needs to be remembered that the day when the resolution was taken up in the assembly for discussion and vote, mainstream parties staged a drama by engaging in verbal abuses with each other and what Mohammad Akber Lone and Late Iftikhar Ansari did on the day of voting was just to ensure that resolution gets lapsed, the spokesman quoted Rasheed as saying.

Rasheed said that while Congress celebrated Afzal Guru’s hanging just to strengthen their vote Bank in India, AIP made them to confess the guilt that Afzal Guru did not get justice when their MLAs were made to issue a statement seeking apology over the hanging. Kashmiris as a nation should answer the valuable questions raised by Afzal Guru’s family from time to time including the failure of sincere voices to engage a competent lawyer to fight Afzal Guru’s case in Supreme Court.

“By denying even the mortal remains of Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhat New Delhi has confessed that they were not terrorists  but enjoyed popular support and even a large section of civil society, writers, intellectuals and certain genuine politicians called hanging of Afzal Guru judicial murder and condemned New Delhi for not returning their mortal remains,” Rasheed was quoted by spokesman as saying.
