The father of student activist and former student leader of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Shehla Rashid has alleged that his daughter is involved in anti-national activities, according to Hindustan Times’ sister publication Hindustan.
Hindustan reported that Abdul Rashid Shora has asked for security cover for himself. In a letter to Jammu and Kashmir Police chief, Rashid has claimed threat to life from Shehla, her sister Asma and his wife Zubeda Shora, reported Hindustan.
Shehla has, however, rubbished these allegations and has instead accused her father of domestic violence.
“Many of you must have come across a video of my biological father making wild allegations against me and my mum & 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,” Shehla said on Twitter, posting a three-page letter along with her tweet.
In a series of four tweets, Shehla talked about her past life and the impact of her father. “He had never, in his wildest dreams, imagined that his obedient wife and timid daughters would ever speak up against him. Since he was restrained from entering home by the Hon’ble Court, he’s trying to derail the judicial process by resorting to cheap stunts,” she said in one of the tweets.
Rashid, meanwhile, demanded a probe against rge NGOs run by Shehla and accused her of having taken huge amounts of money for joining politics in the Kashmir valley, a charge denied by her.
