Involve Kashmiris in talks: Malik to India, Pak
Kangan, Aug 19: The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Friday asked India and Pakistan to involve Kashmiris as first party in the talks and decision making processes to hammer out a viable solution to Kashmir issue.
Addressing a gathering here in north Kashmir, Malik said, “Kashmiris had started their movement on their own strength and no one can break our resolve till our goal is achieved. World has to honour our peaceful struggle and put in efforts to find out
a viable solution to the vexed Kashmir issue,” he said.
Malik apprised the gathering about his recent visit to Pakistan and his meetings with leaders of Pakistan and Pakistan administered Kashmir there. He said all the problems in the world could be solved through talks and resolving problems through this process is in fact the distinctive identity and characteristic of a civilized society. “But the process of talks on Kashmir issue has always proved unsuccessful. As a result, the people of Kashmir have lost faith in this process. To restore Kashmiris’ faith in talks, there is a need to make these talks time-bound, meaningful and result oriented,” he said.
Malik warned of devastating consequences which, according to him, would engulf whole subcontinent if the world failed to honour and value the Kashmiris’ peaceful struggle.
He alleged that Kashmiris’ peaceful struggle was being suppressed and crushed by coercive and violent methods. “Innocent children, youth and peaceful political leaders are stuffed in jails without being allowed to seek by any legal aid in defence,” he said, urging the international community and justice loving people and civil society of India to come forward and use their influence to ensure their release. He urged the Kashmiri youth to continue the struggle albeit peacefully and in a disciplined way.
After public meeting, a procession led by Malik was taken out to press for the demand to release all detainees.
Malik was accompanied by several senior Front leaders including advocate Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Showkat Ahmad Bakshi, Mushtaq Ajmal, Muhammad Sidiq Shah and Sheikh Nazir Ahmad.
