​Protect Jammu Muslims or face consequences in Kashmir: Er Rasheed

April 23 Srinagar : Warning of “direct consequences” if government fails to act against cow vigilantes, AIP supremo and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has sought stern action against the “goons who attacked a nomad family in Reasi.”

As per a party statement, Rasheed said: “The so called Gau Rakshaks are absolutely inhuman and are bringing a very bad name to Hindu religion itself. There can be no other worst form of terrorism than what these goons have been doing.”
“It is strange that those claiming to have patent rights of defending Hinduism love cows but kill humans in the name of protecting cows and didn’t spare even nine year old girl in Talvara,” the statement added.
“People in this part of sub-continent don’t need permission from anyone to have cow slaughtering or eat what they wish. These criminal minded goons must understand that they cannot always run away by getting shelter from administration controlled by Sang-Parivar,” Rasheed saidadding that, “it is painful that J&K police has given these goons total free hand and SSP Reasi is not only busy in downplaying the incident but for the reason, he being a Muslim, is trying to prove himself more loyal than the king.”
