Talks only way forward: Malik
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 30: The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday said that said all the issues in the world could be resolved through talks.
“We want to impress upon the leadership of India and Pakistan that Jammu Kashmir is not a border dispute between two countries but it is the question of the life and freedom of over one crore Kashmiris,” Malik said, while addressing a gathering at Sadarkote, Hajan, Sonawari, nearly 45 kms from here.
Malik said the Kashmir issue could not be settled viably without the involvement of its cardinal party---Kashmiris, in talks.
Malik said the Indo-Pak talks had been subservient to change of mood and relations between these countries. “This inconsistency in mood between the two nations has taken a heavy toll on Kashmiris’ life. Sometimes our child Zubair Ahmad of Sopur is drowned, sometimes the father of 9-children Ghulam Muhammad Kalas falls to the bullets of troops and sometimes an 70- year old Habibullah Khan is shot dead by armed forces,” he said, adding that “We have lost our three generations and now the world has to think of coming generation and take effective steps to resolve the Kashmir issue. The Indo-Pak talks should be made time-bound and Kashmir issue resolved without wasting further time.”
People in a large number participated in the gathering despite heavy rains. They took Malik to the house of local martyred youth in procession, raising pro-freedom slogans.
The Front vice-chairman advocate Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Javid Ahmad Zargar, Muhamamd Yaseen Bhat, Mushtaq Ajmal, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, Sheikh Nazir Ahmad, Muhammad Sidiq Shah, Prof. Javid, Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri and Syed Nisar Ahmad Jeelani were also present on the occasion.
