Mir pitches for peaceful K-resolution
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 30: Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (H) Javeed Ahmad Mir Monday said Kashmir’s armed struggle will enter its 25th year on July 31 “but we are still in need of a peaceful solution to the issue of Kashmir.”
“We don’t want to lose our fourth generation. We are yearning for a peaceful solution to the issue,” he said.
Mir said the outbreak of armed struggle was the outcome of “hegemony” of New Delhi. “They didn’t understand our political voice. So to get world attention we tried our hands on gun and we were successful in getting that,” he said.
The JKLF leader said they were asking the stakeholders of Kashmir to solve the long-standing dispute peacefully without any further bloodshed. “When (Shaheed) Muhammad Maqbool Bhat was hanged youth were outraged. We marked it that we have to fight,” he said, adding sacrifices of people would never be forgotten.
“Then came world leaders and asked us to remain peaceful. We shunned the violence and looked for a peaceful solution. But it is nowhere.”
Mir said they were not against the friendship of the two countries of India and Pakistan but looked for a peaceful solution to Kashmir dispute. “And international community without interests must intervene in solving the issue,” he added.
