Kashmir resolution lies in respecting people’s sentiment, says Jama’at


Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday said that it strongly believes that all the complex issues of the world can be resolved through dialogue provided the parties show sincerity and start it with the determination to reach a just conclusion.

In a statement a spokesperson of the Jama’at said: “The stronger party should show due regard to the principles of justice and express its will to accept the just cause of the weaker party.”

“The present world faces a number of problems, two of these being more critical, the unsettlement of which has caused many wars in the past and the war-like situation is still prevailing with the result that these regions are subject to the uncertainty and the human blood shed is continuing. These two global issues are Palestine and Kashmir. The Palestine Issue emerged in 1948 when the international powers under a well-thought design helped the Jews occupy the land of Palestine and cause forcible exodus of the local people. So far as the Kashmir Issue is concerned, it came into being when the Indian army entered the valley and occupied a part of J&K. the then Indian government made a pledge before the United Nations Security Council through a number of resolutions that as soon as the congenial atmosphere is established, the people of the entire J&K would be given a free chance to choose their political future but despite the passage of a long period of seventy years, this chance is yet to be provided to the oppressed people. Now the government of India is denying even the disputed nature of Kashmir. The special status given to Jammu and Kashmir with legal sanctities has also been gradually eroded to the point of its becoming ineffective. This attitude can neither help in establishing the durable peace nor make any change in the present uncertain scenario here. Under these circumstances, it is indispensable to accept the real nature of the Issue and take concrete steps for its permanent and just resolution. By applying the military might or implementing the black laws, the durable peace has never been so far established nor there is any such possibility in the future. But the best way to establish peace is to accept the ground reality and allow the oppressed people to decide their fate ultimately in a fair and democratic atmosphere. To exercise this just option all the three parties to the dispute-India, Pakistan and Kashmiri people should sit together to find a solution acceptable to the concerned people and fulfilling their aspirations,” the spokesperson said.

The statement further reads: “Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir always advocates the resolution of all international complex issues through sincere and meaningful dialogue and this is its avowed stand regarding the Kashmir issue too. At this juncture, when the Indian interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma has reached the valley with some agenda, Jama’at considers it proper to reiterate its stand that the final solution to the Kashmir issue can be sort by honoring the aspirations of the concerned people. The procedure for reaching a just conclusion can either be adopted as given in the UNSC resolutions or all the three parties can by mutual deliberations find a viable way. Jama’at also advises Dineshwar Sharma to impress the government of India to adopt this methodology so that without wasting the time and economy, this long standing human and political issue can be resolved forever keeping the ground realities and wishes of the entire people of J&K in view.”
