Dy CM’s remarks and Jastrotia induction indicates how much justice can be expected in Kathua case: JRL
Srinagar,: Joint Resistance Leadership of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik strongly condemning the outrageous and inhuman statement by Dy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta of BJP that the deliberate and gruesome rape and murder of 8-year-old child Asifa from Kathua was a “small matter which was given importance,” said tt reflects the sick communal mindset and value structure of the “proud RSS man.”
JRL said that inducting another organizer of the Pro rapist rallies Ravinder Jasrotia into the government clearly shows that BJP does not believe in deviating from its politics of polarization and appeasement of certain communities for votes, even on a basic human issue like this, which is not surprising. It just reinforces the fact of how helpless the local collaborators, the PDP are and how shameless they can be to stay on for the sake of chair. It also indicates how much justice can be expected for Asifa from a system run by such people.
Earlier, the induction of Kathua MLA Rajiv Jastrotia by BJP on Monday as a minister in the Jammu and Kashmir cabinet has triggered a fresh controversy with sane voices raising question over his participation in a rally to favor the accused in Kathua minor’s rape and murder case for which BJP earlier forced two stalwarts to quit.
Jastrotia, who took oath along with eight others, was part of the controversial Kathua rally in support of the accused in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl. Jastrotia was also questioned in connection with the case.
Furore has been generated due to his induction. Prominent Journalist Barkha Dutt tweeted –“ Rajiv Jasrotia #Kathua MLA who also attended the rally to back men charged with rape& murder of an 8-year-old girl has today been made minister in #JammuAndKashmir. So why drop the two state ministers at all? Here’s what the child’s lawyer TalibHussain told me about MLA’s role”
Inam un Nabi, Political analyst, while talking to The Kashmir News Bureau stated – “ The induction of MLA who came in support of rapists in State cabinet shows the level to which politics has been degraded in Kashmir and especially how those who encourage goon and criminal elements are rewarded. This development is bound to alienate youth further and have negative consequences on the overall situation. PDP BBJP coalition government is taking rot to new levels.”Meanwhile, asking Mehbooba Mufti to clear her stand on how Rajiv Jasrotia was inducted in her cabinet, MLA Langate Sheikh Abdul Rasheed has said that his induction has exposed the collation Government’s claims of taking a moral ground over Kuthua rape and murder case.
