Shehla Rashid reveals tale of domestic abuse by father

The father of former JNU student Shehla Rashid has accused him of treason. After this, Shehla also made serious allegations against the father. She said that father Abdul Rashid Shora himself is corrupt and used to beat his mother.

In a tweet, Shehla said his father Abdul Rashid Shoura was barred from going to the house in the domestic violence case by the Munsiff Court of Srinagar from October.

The people of the house had filed a complaint of domestic violence against Abdul Rashid. Now Abdul Rashid has written a letter to Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbag Singh, accusing his daughter Shehla Rashid of taking three crore rupees from a Kashmiri businessman.

Abdul Rashid has accused businessman Zahur Ahmad Shah Vatali of taking three crore rupees in return for joining the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement Party. The UPSC Civil Services Examination topper, Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement Party, was started by IAS officer Shah Faisal.

Shah Faisal’s resignation from the IAS is still pending with the government. Vatali and former MLA engineer Rashid were arrested by the NIA in the terrorist funding case 2017 and 2019.

Shehla Rashid has given false accusations to her father’s allegations. She said “We have lodged an FIR against him for domestic violence. They want to derail the entire judicial process. The court has banned his arrival”.

“They themselves are saying that they have met Vatali. If they have met Vatali, they should reply. If they have made any deal in my name, they should tell. If they feel that I am involved in anti-national activity, then why did they delay it so much? If they are stopped from entering the house then they are doing all this” She said.

In another tweet Shehla and said, ‘We are all sad after someone in the family has died. I am also sad that my father Abdul Rashid Shora is making false allegations against my sister, mother and me”. 

Although the matter is family related, I still have to answer serious allegations. He has been torturing my mother for a long time, so mother did not let him enter the house. It is his reaction. My mother tolerated everything. 

She remained silent for the family’s respect. Now we have started speaking out against physical and mental torture. I had also filed an FIR in September. I request everyone not to take them seriously.
