Peace process, killings cannot go together: Fai
London, June 13: Executive Director of Kashmiri American Council Kashmir Center, Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai has said that peace process and killings cannot go together.
“International community should take cognizance of the human rights situation in JK. I urge India and Pakistan to seek an amicable settlement of Kashmir issue so that sufferings of people are mitigated,” Dr Fai told a news conference here.
He strongly pleaded for the intra-Kashmir dialogue and demanded that Kashmiri leadership should be a part of ongoing Indo-Pak talks.
Fai said that an intra-Kashmiri dialogue should include leaders of All Parties Hurriyat Conference and the leadership of all the regions and religions of JK.
“The Governments of India and Pakistan need to be persuaded to issue the travel documents to the concerned parties to guarantee their participation,” he said.
“India’s claim that Kashmir is its part is based on nothing more than an Instrument of Accession signed by the Maharajah (Ruler) in order to obtain India’s military help. This accession was conditional on a reference to a popular vote, not yet held,under impartial auspices,” Fai added.
He explained that there were only two likely possibilities. “Either wishes of people about their future have to be ascertained or the continuance of the status quo with violent repression and the danger of nuclear war in the south Asian,” Fai added.
Fai reiterated that an appointment of a person of an international stature like Bishop Desmond Tutu as a special envoy on Kashmir would hasten the process of peace and stability in South Asia which includes, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Kashmir
