LoC skirmishes will continue until resolution of K-issue: Geelani
Srinagar Jan 9: Commenting on the incidence of firing between India and Pakistan, the chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Wednesday said such undesirable incidents and loss of precious human lives would continue to happen until the Kashmir dispute is resolved as per aspirations of people.
“There is every apprehension that in future a small incident may add fuel to the fire and create a disaster beyond our imagination. The countries all over the world are striving for peace and overall progress in every walk of life but the two countries of Asian continent: India and Pakistan, are in a state of perennial tension and war. The major part of their budget is specified for their defense while on the other hand the common people are deprived of the basic amenities and are living below poverty line. Three major wars between the two countries were fought in the past and persistent cold war scenario is going on due to the unresolved dispute of Jammu and Kashmir,” said Geelani, in a statement from New Delhi.
Referring to the Line of Control, Geelani said hundreds and thousands of Kashmiris and even the Indo- Pak soldiers lost their lives due to Kashmir dispute. “In case the two countries cease to show restraint and resolve the differences, there is every possibility of nuclear confrontation,” said Geelani, warning that some western powers are keen to establish their supremacy in the region and the nefarious designs of these powers could be foiled when there is peace and tranquility in India and Pakistan. “But the peace will continue to elude the subcontinent until the resolution of Kashmir issue,” he said.
“It is my sincere advice to Indian authorities that without repeating the mistakes committed in past, they should understand the reality with regard to Kashmir dispute,’’ he added.
