Abdul Rashid Shora, the father of Shehla Rashid, has accused her of having taken a huge amount of money for joining politics in Kashmir valley, a charge the former JNUSU leader and activist vehemently denied.

Shehla’s father has also demanded a probe into the NGOs being run by her and the bank accounts of his daughters and their mother.

Abdul Rashid in his letter to the DGP, J&K Police has demanded personal security and has also asked for support from the local police station in getting back to his house as per court order.

“I also request you to order investigations into the conduct of Sakib and his associated, bank details of Shehla Rashid, Asma Rashid, Zubaida and Sakib, property acquired by them at New Delhi, their e-mail accounts and their mysterious financial dealings with Feroz Peerzada, Zahoor Vatali and Rashid Engineer and notorious activities being done by them in the name of Empowerment of Women and Social Justice NGO,” said Abdul Rashid in his letter.

‘Mysterious financial dealings, anti-national activities’

The former JNUSU leader Shehla termed her father’s statement as “absolutely disgusting and baseless” saying this was his the reaction after a court barred him entry into their Srinagar house on November 17 after a complaint was filed by the family against him under domestic violence charges.

Releasing a three-page letter addressed to the Director-General of Police at a press conference here, Shora claimed that he is facing a threat to his life from Shehla, her security guard, sister and her mother.

“She had taken Rs three crore to join politics in Kashmir from (former MLA) Engineer Rashid and (businessman) Zahoor Watali (both of whom were arrested last year by the National Investigation Agency for their alleged involvement in terror funding case),” PTI quoted Shora as saying.

Responding to her father’s allegations, Shehla called him “a wife-beater, abusive and depraved man.”

“Many of you must have come across a video of my biological father making wild allegations against me and my mum and sis. To keep it short and straight, he’s a wife-beater and an abusive, depraved man. We finally decided to act against him, and this stunt is a reaction to that,” she said in a tweet.

Don’t take my father seriously: Shehla Rashid

Calling the allegations “absolutely disgusting and baseless”, she said the fact of the matter is that they have filed a complaint of domestic violence with a court in Kashmir against her father and it has passed an order restraining his entry into their home.

Requesting everyone not to take him seriously, Shehla said that her mother has tolerated abuse, violence and mental torture all her life.

“She has kept quiet for the sake of respect for the family now that we have started speaking up against his physical and mental abuse, he has started abusing us too,” she added.
