Include Kashmiris in talks: Malik
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 25: Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday reiterated that Kashmiris should be included in the ongoing India-Pakistan dialogue process.
Malik while welcoming the Indo-Pak secretary level talks, which concluded in Islamabad on Friday, said, “JKLF has always favoured talks and welcomes any development aimed at resolving the Kashmir issue.”
“Time bound, and fruitful dialogue process is the need of the hour,” he said. “Serious dialogue process involving India, Pakistan and Kashmiri leadership is the only way to resolve the Kashmir issue permanently.”
“We have always favoured talks. However, the reality is that such kind of bilateral negotiations in past 63-years have not paid any dividends,” Malik said.
He said Kashmiris have “always suffered” in times of friendship or enmity between Pakistan and India.
“Kashmir issue is very dangerous not only for south Asia, but for the whole world also. Kashmiris as a whole have been suffering over the past 63- years. The time has now come to resolve the Kashmir issue.”
He also asked the opposition parties of both the countries to support the dialogue process to resolve the dispute.
“When the opposition parties in both India and Pakistan are in power, they hold different views regarding the Kashmir issue. When they are in opposition they always create obstacles. JKLF urges them to pave way for the resolution of the Kashmir issue.”
Malik said when Kashmiris want peace and resolution of the Kashmir issue they are either imprisoned, or labelled as drug addicts or ostracized.
