Azadi only solution for Kashmir: JKLF
Srinagar, Sept 27: The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front on Sunday maintained that freedom is the only viable solution for the long-standing Kashmir dispute.
Reacting to the statement of a senior separatist leader that Azadi was not an option for Kashmir, a JKLF spokesman maintained the reputed global organizations and think-tanks have conducted surveys on Kashmir and stated that 85 Kashmiris want freedom.
“Azadi is a realistic and viable solution for the dispute as it has been acknowledged by the UN resolutions. A large number of intellectuals subscribe to the belief that if Kashmir attains freedom, it can stand amongst the leading countries due to its water and natural resources,” the statement said.
The spokesman said for the just cause, the JKLF founder Shaheed Muhammad Maqbool Bhat sacrificed his life. “In 1988, JKLF started an armed movement to realize the dream of independent Kashmir. Our leaders including Shaheed Aashfaq Majeed Wani and Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Hameed along with over one lakh Kashmiris sacrificed their lives for realization of this dream. Our leaders and activists are still rendering unflinching sacrifices for the cause. We take a vow that we will continue to carry on the movement peacefully to pave way for an independent Kashmir,” it added.
