Srinagar, Apr 16: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (H) chairman Javid Ahmad Mir on Monday termed as right and realistic the United Jihad Council chief Syed Salah-ud-Din’s statement on Indo-Pak trade that Kashmiris had offered the sacrifices of lakhs of its people for their right of self-determination and not for the trade of walnuts, potatoes and onions.
In a statement Mir emphasized on the need to present Kashmir issue at international level in an effective way. “Indo-Pak trade is not a new thing and this step had never and will not ever heel the wounds of Kashmiris. Initiation of tripartite talks to resolve Kashmir issue will alone put an end to the uncertainty in the region,” he said, adding that Kashmir issue is the basic cause of perennial tension between India and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Mir expressed deep sorrow over the demise of the brother-in-law of noted legal luminary advocate Zaffar Ahmad Shah and grandmother of Wajahat Qureshi and Imran Zargar. He prayed for the deceased and sympathized with the bereaved families.
