  • Says Kashmiris need sermons from none

SRINAGAR: Despite heavy rains and chilling weather dozens joined AIP’s 24 hour long hunger strike in press colony Srinagar today to protest against atrocities on students by police and other agencies. The protesters were carrying banners and play cards appealing world community to take notice of huge atrocities on youth in Kashmir at the hands of security forces. Talking to media persons on the occasionAIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed said that state Police has lost a right to be called as J&K police as its double standards have crossed all limits.

He said “It is painful that while civilized people in every part of world are showing their concern and are taking to streets, the local police is using all brutalities against the peaceful students. The fact of the matter is that police has not been allowing students to come out of their college or university premises thus provoking them and gets indulged in arguments and counter arguments with the students. Police, army and other forces are always in search of an opportunity to humiliate and drag students without caring for their gender and age”. Er. Rasheed while reacting to Nayeen Akhter’s appeal to masses to stop protesting now, as the matter is being looked into by the court, reminded Nayeem Akhter of his government’s miserable failures in dealing with the issue.

He said “Before throwing sermons to Kashmiris Nayeem Akhter should answer why was not Asifa’s body even allowed to be buried in her native village and why was no action taken against those who stopped the drinking water supply of the entire Muslim population in Lasana”. Not only Nayee Akhter but everyone else needs to know that Kashmiris have lost faith in the system and seeing the fate of Kunan Poshpora and Shopian rape cases the apprehensions shown by the students and masses are genuine. He asked Narinder Modi not to give sermons in foreign countries about caring dignity and respect of women and challenged him to get Kunan Poshpora, Shopian and likewise cases investigated through some internationally recognized agency, if he believes in his words.

SRINAGAR: Young property dealers from Valley are planning to establish ‘Kashmir Society’ in Indian capital New Delhi that will be exclusively reserved for the people of Kashmir.  A budding entrepreneur Rizwan Khan who is a property dealer as well as promoter has named his new enterprise as ‘edraaal’ and when asked how he decided to come up with such a name which doesn’t give a good impression, Khan says he wants to restore the credibility of this business in Kashmir Valley.   

 

“We have shown boldness by choosing the name ‘edraaal’ to restore the significance of this business. We have gone ‘e’ (electronic) because we want transparency in our business. We operate through our website www.edraaal.com where anybody can upload their properties. Our involvement is least in the business and we do believe in transparency,” says Rizwan Khan. 

 Khan who has done MBA and hails from Chattabal area of Srinagar city says that they want all property dealers to get connected with them. “We don’t want to isolate other property dealers and want to work together. We have chosen ‘e’ format to make our business global. Any seller who uploads property on our portal can find buyers all across globe. There are thousands of people from Kashmir who live outside and it is a good platform for them,” he says.  

He says properties in Kashmir are bought or sold through conventional method that is ‘word of mouth’. This conventional method doesn’t bear good results as the reach is limited and besides, there is no transparency. Our method is a transparent one where buyers and sellers can directly interact with each other and besides it has a global reach.   

While talking about his future plans, Rizwan Khan says that they are exclusively affiliated with Delhi and Haryan based Arsh Group and Arya Real Tech. “We are mulling to create a Kashmir Society in New Delhi with the help of Arsh Group. That Colony will be exclusively reserved for the people of Kashmir where they will get all the required facilities including a mosque. If this plan materializes, the colony for the people of Kashmir will be established by 2020,” Says Rizwan Khan.
