Resolve K-issue: Nayeem to UN
Srinagar, Dec 9: Jammu Kashmir National Front chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan has urged the United Nations and the world community to help resolve the Kashmir dispute.
In a statement on the eve of World Human Rights Day, Nayeem said the resolution of Kashmir was imperative for durable peace in the region.
Terming Kashmir issue as a hurdle in lasting peace of South Asia, Nayeem said, “As long as rights violations continue to take place and the armed forces are not held accountable, peace and stability in the region would remain a far-fetched dream.”
“In Kashmir, violations are overlooked. People are increasingly losing faith governance,” Khan said.
“International community has failed to come to the rescue of Kashmiris who are struggling democratically and through peaceful means for achieving their rights which are accepted world over and the Government of India is trying to muzzle their voices,” he added.
Concerned over the continuous silence of rights bodies, Khan said, “At a time when the whole world is observing Human Rights Day and each and every country is making pledges to safeguard the basic rights of their citizens, in Kashmir thousands of mass graves and a large number of orphans and widows are questioning the continuous silence of international rights organizations”.
