Javid Mir asks Obama to resolve Kashmir
Srinagar, Nov 7: JKLF (R) senior vice-president, Javid Ahmad Mir on Sunday appealed to the visiting US president, Barack Obama to help in resolution of Kashmir saying it was imperative for peace in south Asia.
In a statement, Mir said “Obama should take serious note of human rights violations committed by the troops and police and respect the sacrifices rendered by the Kashmiris. I urge Obama to impress upon India to shun its rigid stand on Kashmir and resolve the dispute according to the aspirations of Kashmiri people,” he said.
Reacting to the statement of US National Security Council spokesman, Mir said India and Pakistan had failed to resolve the dispute bilaterally. “The dispute has consumed three generations of Kashmir and it is high time for its resolution,” he added.
