UN resolutions form basics and guarantee the peaceful and amicable solution of issue as per aspirations of people of Jammu and Kashmir, said Syed Ali Geelani.

While commenting over the resolution passed on January 5 1949, Geelani said that even after seven decades these resolutions are a viable and provide a peaceful and durable solution for this vexed and long standing issue. Expressing his dismay over the role of UNO, Geelani said that “it is painful that this institution failed to implement its resolutions.”

Commenting on the responsibilities of the UN, Geelani said that “though they have done a commendable job in the fields of poverty, malnutrition and social issues, but it is unfortunate that it couldn’t contain the arrogant forces like India which is trampling all ethics in Jammu and Kashmir.”

“Suppressed people are losing their faith in this institution and they are forces to adopt other means of resistance, which may have drastic repercussions,” he further said and added that  “on January 5, 1949 resolution is a clear binding on both India and Pakistan to fulfill their commitment of resolving Kashmir issue according to the wishes and aspiration of the people through a peaceful referendum.”

Citing the examples and procedures adopted in Croatia, East Timor and South Sudan, Geelani said that if UN can settle these issues, what is the reason that the longest pending issue is ignored and brushed under carpet.

Geelani also  said that non-resolution of Kashmir is bone of contention between the two nuclear powers and if UN fails to play its role in solving this grave human issue not only Indo-Pak subcontinent but global peace and stability is under sever threat which make culminate in the world’s biggest human catastrophe.
