UN resolutions as good as implemented: Prof Bhat
‘Kashmiris need to exhibit flexibility’
Srinagar, July 7: Accepting United Nations resolutions as the legal base for Kashmir issue, Muslim Conference chairman and senior Hurriyat leader Prof Abdul Gani Bhat has said resolutions are useful only when applied or acted upon rather than for their content and existence.
“Despite passage of six decades, the resolutions have not been implemented,” he said. “Apart from UN resolutions, Hurriyat Constitution envisages three options including complete freedom and tripartite talks as means for finding a lasting solution to the vexed Kashmir issues,” he added.
The Muslim Conference leader said his party has prepared three different roadmaps for solution of Kashmir issue, which will be presented before people in coming times as and when needed. “I am sure these roadmaps will be needed in the near future”, he said adding he will provide the documents to Hurriyat Conference whenever it needs. Once Hurriyat gets these three formulas, it will become the Hurriyat Conference property, he said.
Bhat said he may seem lonely with his beliefs and assertions; however, he has enough ammunition in store to prove the veracity of his beliefs and actions. “I don’t shoot in darkness. Let those people who are happy because of my loneliness stay happier, however only time will tell who will take matters forward in the right direction”, the Professor said. Bhat said his loneliness was a result of his realization of realities and sticking to them.
Admitting presence of certain differences among the Hurriyat Conference leaders, he said such differences should not be perceived as conflict or rivalry among Hurriyat leaders. “Differences have been there right since the Hurriyat Conference was founded, however, despite differences the forum is vibrant and intact”, he said. Bhat said India and Pakistan have reached at point where they cannot avoid the resolution of the Kashmir issue for long, however all the sides including Kashmiris will need to exhibit flexibility and broad mindedness to reach a solution, he said.
“Leadership from India, Pakistan and Kashmir should not expect any miracles. Everyone will have to be ready to move ahead of their conventional stands and try to find common ground”, he added.
Bhat cautioned if the three parties don’t show flexibility, the future generations will keep suffering asserting understanding of the sensitivities of other parties can only ensure result oriented talks. “If flexibility is not there, the dialogue process can only get stalled”, he said. (KNS)
