‘Remain vigilant while issuing statements on Kashmir’
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Nov 7: The chairman of Pakistan’s parliamentary committee on Kashmir Moulana Fazl-ur-Rehman has cautioned the political leaders and other state institutions to remain vigilant while issuing statements on Kashmir.
Reacting to recent statement of Pakistan’s interior secretary Rehman said, “Kashmir is the most significant and sensitive issue and off the cuff statements on the issue not only damages the Kashmir cause but also dents the sentiments of the people of Pakistan and Kashmir.”
Pertinently, the Pak interior secretary while presenting the ministry’s viewpoint regarding the messy situation in Balochistan had made some startling observations, which straightaway negated Pakistan’s stand on Jammu and Kashmir.
Fazal said that issuing statements on this very crucial subject (Kashmir) has become a fashion now. He maintained that Kashmir was neither part of Indian dominion nor an internal issue of India. He said there was no insurgency whatsoever in Kashmir, the people of the region have been struggling for their inalienable right guaranteed to them by the world community.
“Kashmir is not a border dispute, for last several decades Kashmiris are engaged in a legitimate struggle which cannot be equated with other secessionist movements going on in other states of India”, he said adding that Kashmir was an internationally recognized disputed territory awaiting final settlement.
