Srinagar, June 20, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, Independent member of so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdur Rasheed while ruling out compromise on Kashmiris’ right to self-determination has reiterated that Jammu and Kashmiris is not part of India.
Speaking on the floor of the so-called assembly Engineer Rasheed asked the so-called members to understand the historic reality and tell New Delhi that there was no substitute to Plebiscite in Kashmir. He said that assembly had no authority to overrule UN Resolutions.
He said, “Even if you send me to jail, debar me from contesting elections or hang me, it will not force me to change my stand on Kashmir. We have sacrificed about one lakh lives and can’t compromise on right to self-determination.”
“I am not against India’s sovereignty and am talking simply about Jammu and Kashmir which has become a bone of contention between India and Pakistan and assembly has no authority to overrule UN Resolutions, he added.
