Terming that worsening Indo-Pak relations could prove detrimental for the peace in south Asia, Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that the main source of tension between the two nations was the pending resolution of Kashmir issue.
While addressing a large gathering in Muzaafabad through telephone, Mirwaiz said the worst sufferers of Indo-Pak confrontation would be Kashmiris as they have been in the past. He said if the current tense situation doesn’t subside, thousands of people living along the LOC on both sides have to leave their homes and have to migrate from their places.
