Separatist, mainstream camps welcome Ban Ki Moon’s K-statement
Srinagar, Apr 28: Cutting across the party lines mainstream as well as separatist parties on Friday welcomed the statement of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon who called for peaceful resolution of Kashmir issue. However Separatist camp demanded that Kashmir leadership should be included in talks and human rights violations in the region should stop forthwith.
Chairman of Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani while welcoming the statement urged the UN chief to implement UN resolutions and give a chance to Kashmiris to decide their fate. “Non-resolution of Kashmir issue has endangered lives of millions of people. It is responsibility of the international organizations and institutions to pave way for the resolution of the Kashmir issue. He should personally work for the removal of the impediments towards implementation of UN resolutions. We won’t accept any kind of change in the disputed nature and status of the Kashmir issue,” Geelani said while addressing a meeting of Hurriyat (G) advisory council here.
Terming the statement of UN Chief as the voice of millions of Kashmiris who are waiting for resolution of Kashmir issue for a long time, a JKLF spokesman quoting the Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik said: “We welcome the statement of UN chief. He has talked in favour of a suppressed nation which is appreciable. Kashmiris have been striving for the resolution of Kashmir issue for a long time through peaceful means. Kashmiri leaders should be included in the talks process without any delay. We have been demanding that peace process should be institutionalized. It is also necessary that all the parties and forces should work to pave way for the resolution of Kashmir issue.”
Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq called on the UN chief to use his good office to stop the human rights violations in JK. “It is the moral responsibility of the UN to pave way for resolution of the Kashmir issue. We hope that UN Chief will get the Kashmir issue resolved according to the wishes and aspirations of Kashmiri people,” Mirwaiz added.
National Front Chairman, Nayeem Ahmed Khan termed Ban–Ki –Moon’s statement as the vindication of their stand, “It vindicates our stand. It is unfortunate that different conflicts were resolved, but it has been left out. Kashmir issue should be resolved. It should not be limited to statements; otherwise its credibility is at stake.”
JKLF (H) Chairman Javaid Ahmed Mir said that Kashmir issue is one of the longest outstanding issues which need to be resolved without any delay. “We have been waiting for Kashmir resolution for the past six decades.”
National Conference while welcoming the statement of the UN Chief said, “It is a welcome step; National Conference has always welcomed and facilitated any process that will bridge the gap between India and Pakistan. It’s the victory of NC leadership which made atmosphere conducive for leaders of both India and Pakistan to discuss all outstanding issues including Kashmir,” said National Conference Spokesperson, Tanvir Sadiq.
Ruling coalition partner, Congress also welcomed the statement. “Congress believes in resolution of Kashmir issue by consensus and inclusion of all parties including Hurriyat. No single party can give a solution to this problem and those who believe that they can are befooling people to draw political mileage out of it,” said, Congress Leader, Abdul Gani Vaki.
“We can solve our internal problems on our own without outside interference.
Whosoever has been involved in human rights violations has been punished by different courts, put behind bars. We can do it on our own. No outsider can teach us in this regard.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Supremo, Mehbooba Mufti said, “Everybody wants to resolve Kashmir issue. Everyone wants resolution of Kashmir. People are satisfied. It will restore peace in South Asia.”
CPI (M) State Secretary, M Y Tarigami said, “CPI (M) has been constantly reiterating that peace in south Asia can be possible only if issues like Kashmir are resolved to the satisfaction of the people of the region.”
