Fake news peddler Shehla Rashid evades questions on whether she has proof of her allegations against Indian Army

The freelance protestor-turned-politician Shehla Rashid was once again seen engaging in her past pursuit.

The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) today organised an all-party demonstration at the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi demanding the immediate release of Kashmiri politicians who are precautionarily detained in the aftermath of the abrogation of Article 370.

Many opposition leaders have participated in the protests underway at the Jantar Mantar. Karti Chidambaram, whose father P Chidambaram was yesterday arrested by the CBI from his Jorbagh residence, was also present at the venue. Ghulam Nabi Azad from Congress and Manoj Jha from RJD joined the demonstration. CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI general secretary D Raja, SP leader Ramgopal Yadav, Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav, and TMC’s Dinesh Trivedi were among politicians who attended the protest.

The freelance protestor-turned-politician Shehla Rashid was once again seen engaging in her past pursuit. Rashid, who was recently charged for slandering the Armed Forces through her unfounded and baseless allegations, too joined the opposition in demanding the release of Kashmiri politicians.

When accosted by a Times Now reporter, Rashid appeared to develop cold feet as she refused to take questions asked of her on her malicious tweets about the Indian Armed Forces.

However, Shehla told ANI that she will provide proof if the Indian Army agreed to open an investigation into her allegations.

This answer could be considered a classic evasive tact since if her allegations were indeed true, she would have made them with proof in the first place. The Indian Army cannot open an investigation on her say so without being offered any proof whatsoever. This, after the Indian Army, had categorically denied all the allegations made by Shehla Rashid.

Shehla Rashid has been caught lying several times in the past. She had painted Jignesh Mevani as a victim even as there was clear video evidence that was him who was abusing the police. She had also tweeted an old video passing it off as a recent one to target BJP.

On August 6, the Indian government made an epoch-making decision of rescinding Article 370, that acted as an impediment in the true integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the Indian Union. In other to prevent the state from sliding into unnecessary chaos and disorder, Kashmiri politicians such as Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and others were held in precautionary, preventive and temporary detention. The government has assured that as normalcy gradually returns back in the Valley, politicians will be released.
