Asking New Delhi to learn lessons from the celebrations held  across Kashmir after Pakistan’s victory over India in Champions Trophy, AIP  chief and  MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that the anti-India  is deep sentiment has got deep rooted cutting across political, sectarian or any other lines.

In a statement issued to CNS, Rasheed said “It is strange that Indian TV Channels are still trying to distort the facts and putting their own narratives and fabricated versions of the whole story.

“The way Kashmiris celebrated Pakistan’s victory over India in Champions Trophy, not only in cities and towns, but in the remotest hamlets from Kupwara to Kishtawar, it is proven beyond doubt that New Delhi is ruling through the barrel of the gun and has failed miserably to win hearts and minds of even those who had some corner for New Delhi in Kashmir. It is strange that even large numbers of cops belonging to local police were praying and praising for Pakistan which is an ample proof that New Delhi’s grip on Kashmir is now only through the courtesy of military might. The celebrations have proved like a referendum against India’s all arrogances”.

Engineer Rasheed added that though sports have to be always delinked from politics and Kashmiris are not enemies of India but it is New Delhi and its harsh media which has always shamelessly and without a logic

used cricket to score political points over Pakistan and even so called political experts were abusing Pakistan after its victory over England.

Er. Rasheed appealed Indian intelligencia to read writing on the wall and force its rulers to have a settlement to Kashmir dispute through self determination in the interests of people of the sub-continent.
