Separatists for implementation of UN resolution
RIGHT TO SELF-DETERMINATION DAY
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 5: On the right to self-determination day observed today, several separatist groups demanded the implementation of resolutions passed by United Nations in 1949 for the resolution of Kashmir issue.
Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (R), said the non-implementation of UN resolutions had caused hostilities in the sub-continent.
In a meeting held at party headquarters here, senior leaders including Javaid Ahmad Mir, Tahir Ahmad, Wajahat Qureshi, Rasikh Khurshid and others said the nations which started their struggle for right to self-determination after Kashmir were given their right under UN supervision, but Kashmir was denied the same.
Chairman democratic freedom party, Shabir Ahmad Shah said East Timor was given the right to self- determination but Kashmir issue was kept in cold storage. “If Kashmiris would have been given this right, the people would not have suffered during the last more than six decades,” Shah said in a statement.
The National Front chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan Tuesday said the Kashmir dispute would be permanently settled by implementing United Nations resolutions.
“The resolutions passed on January 5, 1949 by UNO with India and Pakistan as signatories is the only way to resolve the dispute,” he said while addressing a meeting at party headquarters here on Right to Self-determination Day.
He said India was bound to follow the UN resolutions as India itself took the Kashmir issue to the UN.
He said, “The non-implementation of United Nations resolutions has resulted in hostilities not only in Kashmir but in South Asia.” Nayeem said, “Right to self-determination is the only solution of the Kashmir dispute. And both India and Pakistan have accepted it.”
For implementation of UN resolutions, Kashmiri people had laid countless sacrifices, he said.
“India shall understand that its suppression and coercion on Kashmiris will not lead it anywhere and it shall resolve the Kashmir dispute as per the aspirations of Kashmiris,” he said.
In a statement, a spokesman of the J&K Muslim League said the non-implementation of UN resolutions had put question mark on UN credibility. “While Pakistan supported these resolutions, India always wanted to keep the issue lingering,” he said.
J&K People’s Freedom League said the dialogue, bilateral or trilateral, was a futile exercise and the resolution of the issue lied in giving people the right to determine their future.
“Right to self-determination is the only solution to the issue. And both India and Pakistan have accepted this,” a party spokesman said.
The Tehreek-e-Hurriyat spokesman said the resolution of Kashmir issue lied in giving the right to self-determination to the people. “India has made several promises to Kashmiris regarding their rights. United Nations should remind India of these promises,” he said.
“While UN resolutions haven’t been implemented, India has repressed and suppressed the Kashmiris,” he added.
