J&K Legislator Faces Ink-Attack in Delhi


New Delhi: Days after a nationwide uproar over Shiv Sena’s assault on Sudheendra Kulkarni, Jammu and Kashmir MLA Engineer Rashid faced a similar ink attack in the national capital on Monday.

The independent MLA in J&K has been attacked for defying the ban on beef by hosting a party in Srinagar earlier in October. Rashid, who has been at the forefront of the agitation against beef ban, had earlier also faced an attack for his stand on the issue.

On October 9, he was roughed up by members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the J&K Assembly.Reacting to the incident, former J&K chief minister Farooq Abdullah termed it as a tragic incident, saying it showed the growing intolerance in the society.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi should look into who is behind the attack on the MLA,” said Abdullah.
