Omar, Mehbooba Acknowledge Musharraf’s Efforts To Settle Kashmir

SRINAGAR: Former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah on Sunday said former president Pervez Musharraf was the only Pakistani general who genuinely tried to address the Kashmir issue.

Expressing condolences, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti said Musharraf was perhaps the only Pakistani General who “genuinely tried to address the Kashmir issue”. “He wanted a solution according to wishes of people of J&K & acceptable to India & Pak. Though GOI has reversed all CBMs initiated by him & Vajpayee ji, the ceasefire remains,” Mufti tweeted.

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah posted a photo of him shaking hands with Musharraf and said he will always remember Musharraf as the only Pakistani leader willing to meet and engage with mainstream Kashmiri leaders from India, much to the horror of Hurriyat leaders.

“His solution for the “Kashmir issue” put the interests of the people of J&K at the forefront while being realistic that the framework must ensure that neither India nor Pakistan “lost face”. It didn’t happen & we are where we are today. May Allah grant him place in Jannat,” Omar tweeted.
