Government must reconsider banning Jamat-I-Islami: Er. Rasheed

Srinagar 01 March : Condemning ban on Jamat-I-Islami, AIP President Er. Rasheed has accused New Delhi of chocking political space and continuing with its policies of suppression on Kashmiris.

Er. Rasheed also questioned the amendment made in reservation act through an ordinance issued on the recommendations of state Governor. In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “It is unfortunate that rather talking to genuine stake holders over resolution to Kashmir issue, New Delhi is keen bent on muzzling the genuine voices. While Jamat-I-Islami has made huge contributions in education and social sectors and has also played its part in genuine social reforms, the party has considerable following in every nook and corner of the state among all sections of society. The Jamat-I-Islami constitution doesn’t believe in running underground movements and it was the reason why Jamat-I-Islami had deep differences with Geelani Sahab which ended at their parting ways from each other. Jamat has also openly denounced violence and believes in peaceful resolution to Kashmir dispute as such banning the organization carries no sense and logic”.

Er. Rasheed appealed central government to reconsider the decision and revoke the ban before it creates further disappointment among masses. He accused Governor of crossing his domain and getting indulged in constitutional assaults on the special status of the state.

Er. Rasheed said “It is not the issue weather amendments in reservation Act are harmful or beneficial to the people of state but the question is that if governor has any moral or legal authority to do so in absence of an elected government. New Delhi must restrain from misusing the position of the governor and should not compel him to make inroads in the special status of the state constitution”.
