BAZAZ OPPOSES WAR
Srinagar, Jan 20: Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Forum president Pandit Bhushan Bazaz today appealed people along the line of Control (LoC), particularly in Kashmir Poonch and Kargil sector to remain calm and oppose war.
In a statement e-mailed to Greater Kashmir, he said: “Threats of war by the men in power would not solve the issue nor it would redress the wounds caused on the human dignity. The act of beheading a soldier performing his duty cannot be condoned.”
He said the wars have never solved any problem nor are wars a solution to the present conflict vis-a-vis J&K. “Both India and Pakistan must implement Security Council Resolution by withdrawing its Army and illegal settlers from all occupied territories of Jammu and Kashmir including Gilgit, Baltistan, Hunza and Karakoram,” he added.
JKDF Chief also hoped that peace process between India and Pakistan would continue despite reverse caused by the vested interest.
