Hurriyat Conference (g) Jammu Province head and National Front Chairperson, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Sunday said that the secret of political and economic prosperity lies in the resolution of Kashmir dispute and the South Asian region is under the “clouds of apprehensions” only because of it.
“Unfortunately, the elements responsible for the present state of affairs always raise issues only to divert attention from the real dispute even knowing the fact that Kashmiri people have rendered huge sacrifices for the resolution,” Khan said.
He said that Kashmiri people want a resolution of the dispute keeping in view the historical aspect of it because it is “only this resolution for which they have been offering their blood since 1931”.
“India and Pakistan must exhibit their political and diplomatic maturity and adopt a pragmatic approach about the Kashmir dispute because accepting facts of a dispute is the very first step towards the resolution process,” he said.
“Indian unethical and incomprehensible approach towards the resolution process has caused a political suffocation in the whole South Asian region and it has in return damaged New Delhi itself by limiting its role otherwise India would have been a very important player at the international level. The fact is that India should understand the historical and geographical sensitivity of Kashmir dispute for its own benefit,” he added.
“The Dispute has turned Kashmir into a huge and large graveyard and hardly ant day passes when the residents of Kashmir do not remember any tragedy,” he said.
Referring to the seventh anniversary of Shopian double rape and murder tragedy, Khan said, “who can forget Asiya and Neelofar? In fact, no Muslim Kashmiri can ever forget pain of such tragedies.”.
Alarming New Delhi and its local collaborators to shun the way of “deceiving” people, he said, “gone are the days when Kashmiris were be-fooled by Pakistani salt and green cloth, now everybody knows who sold our honour and respect in the political markets of India.” “Kashmiris want a resolution of the dispute where their faith, respect and honour will be safe.” (KNS)
