Resolve Kashmir for peace in sub-continent: Nayeem
Srinagar, Nov 23: National Front chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan on Tuesday reiterated that till India does not shun its ‘stubbornness’ and take initiatives for resolving Kashmir issue, peace would continue to elude the sub-continent.
In a statement, Nayeem said the freedom struggle had been transferred to the young generation of Kashmir.
On his visit to Tangmarg area to express sympathies with the families, who had lost their dear ones on Sept 12 in police action on peaceful protesters, Khan said sacrifices rendered by the youth should serve as a glaring example about the resolve of Kashmiris.
“Our youth have given blood to the freedom movement and very soon Kashmiri people would realize their dream,” he said.
Khan castigated the international community for acting as mute spectators to what he said the massacre of Kashmiris by troopers and police.
He criticized the government of government for its double standards. “On one side they were beating the drums of dialogue and on another they continued the illegal arrests of Kashmiri youth,” he said.
Nayeem said, “New Delhi is leaving no stone unturned to crush the ongoing movement. On one hand the Indian leadership talks of the confidence building measures and on the other they have let loose a reign of terror to crush the just movement.”
Khan said Kashmiris were never against dialogue for resolving the dispute. However, he said, India has to create a conducive atmosphere for dialogue and stop ‘illegal arrests and rights violations.
Nayeem appealed to the Indian Civil Society to impress upon the New Delhi to stop killings, ‘illegal arrests and rights violations.’
Khan paid tributes to the martyred and prayed for recovery of injured.
