‘JKLF wants independent,democratic and secular Kashmir’
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Rawalpindi, Aug 8: The patron-in-chief of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Amanullah Khan has said that his party wants an independent and sovereign state having a democratic, federal and secular system of government in place.
JKLF’s aged leader made these assertions in a communiqué sent to foreign diplomats based in Islamabad on Wednesday. Khan said that the JKLF wants an independent state based on five provinces that included Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit Baltistan and Pakistan administered Kashmir.
He said that as a sovereign state it would be our foremost priority to establish cordial relations with all countries particularly with immediate neighbors that including Pakistan, India, China and Afghanistan.
It may recalled here that besides the communiqué, a copy of Khan’s recent article “The Kashmir of My Dreams” and the press release in response to President Obama’s recent statement have also been dispatched to the heads of diplomatic missions.
In response to President Obama’s statements, the JKLF patron-in-chief said that if he thought that he could not implement his promise, he should have not made the promise in the first place, but once made it, he should have stood by it come what may. “That is what was expected from men of integrity, self-respect and honesty”, he said.
Khan advised the people of entire Jammu Kashmir State to depend on themselves and not on the so-called believers in justice and equity or on human rights and human dignity.
