All-inclusive dialogue imperative to resolve K-issue: Saghar
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Feb 29: The convener of Hurriyat Conference (M) Pak chapter Mehmood Ahmed Saghar on Wednesday said the solution of Kashmir dispute was possible either through the implementation of the long-pending UN resolutions on Kashmir or through a dialogue process involving all the stakeholders particularly the representatives of Kashmiris.
“We believe in dialogue, however, unlike the past experience there is a dire need to have an all-inclusive, time-bound and result-oriented dialogue to explore all possible means to bring about an honourable, peaceful and durable solution to Kashmir conflict that marred the socio-economic growth in the region since 1947 besides consuming three generations,” Saghar told Greater Kashmir.
“Although the UN resolutions provide a comprehensive roadmap to resolve this dispute but the Hurriyat leadership also believes that tripartite talks is a feasible option to evolve a mechanism to resolve the issue once and for all ”.
Regarding the purported reports regarding the plan to freeze Kashmir for 10 years, he said that the top leadership of the amalgam has categorically rejected the report and termed it as baseless. “Any plans intended to freeze or putting the Kashmir issue on backburner won’t really work in Kashmir as the people have suffered terribly and offered matchless sacrifices for the right to self-determination”, he said adding these sacrifices could not be overlooked or ignored in any ways.
Rather than wasting time and energy and creating chaos amongst the masses he said that it was high time to build greater consensus on the issue and forge unity within the ranks and files to steer the nation out of the prevailing chaos.
Terming unity as key to success he said that the dissident voices emanating from separatist circles had in fact damaged Kashmir cause both at internal as well as international level. He said, “At this very crucial juncture, unity and concurrence amongst the Hurriyat leaders is imperative to take the ongoing struggle for right to self-determination to its logical conclusion”.
Regarding the Hurriyat (M) leaders upcoming visit to Pakistan he expressed the hope that the Hurriyat leaders’ visit would have positive impact on the overall situation besides providing the Kashmiri leadership across the divide an opportunity to share their expertise and observations regarding the final settlement of Kashmir issue.
