Kashmir saga of broken promises, half-hearted initiatives: NC
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar May 26: National Conference spokesman Tanvir Sadiq on Saturday said Kashmir is a saga of broken promises, above-turns, and half hearted initiatives.
“Kashmiris judge every move with suspicion due to their past experiences. It is a dangerous trend and the peace loving people may become the biggest casualty if the present stalemate continues,” Tanvir said while interacting with the students of Delhi University here.
“If you want to win a race one has to take the first step, so goes the saying, but unfortunately some vested interest don’t want peace in Kashmir, else why would they delay a solution,” he added.
“There is a lot of hostility that one can feel but restoration of autonomy will be the beginning of a tomorrow where both the neighboring countries would be wedded into a common market,” he added.
“If autonomy is restored then Jammu and Kashmir can become a laboratory for providing an antidote against the animosity, bitterness and mistrust that last six decades have created between India, Pakistan and Kashmir” said Tanvir adding that “NC is the only party which can end the animist, anger and uncertainty that last 65 years have created but for that autonomy in its entirety should be restored.”
Commenting on the contribution of governments in 1996 and onwards from 2009 the spokesman said, “We have to understand under how difficult situation Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah have been working for a political solution and all the political parties irrespective of different ideologies should appreciate how much they have achieved politically for the state and the subcontinent.”
“If anyone is undermining the contribution of Dr Farooq Sahib and Omar Sahib then they are not only doing a disservice to the people and the state but also to their own conscience and unfortunately our myopic oppositions have this underling fear that somewhere if Omar Sahib succeeds the way he does, they will become totally redundant politically” he said. “They don’t realize that twenty first century will be the century of youth and all the antiquated players hoodwinking the people sometimes with Self-Rule and sometime with healing touch will be consigned to the dustbin of history”
“When we talk of Kashmir imbroglio, we are talking of the mistrust and antagonism that has grown with each year over sixty four years. So, whatever the solution, the initiatives lay with the neighboring countries and Kashmir can facilitate the sub-continental initiatives,” he added.
Terming that there is a paradigm shift in world politics and sub-continental thinking as well Tanvir said that every nation has understood the futility of wars and peace initiatives are getting precedence.
“The Peace Process may experience some hiccups but it cannot be stalled forever,” he said. “The NC and people will not allow that to happen. It is sad the vested interest does not see the reality or may be it feels scared that it will have no role when there is a new dawn.”
