In Pak, Yasin Malik says Kashmir dispute main cause of Indo-Pak confrontation
Srinagar, Jan 27: The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik arrived in Pakistan on a private tour on Saturday, a JKLF spokesman said in a statement here.
He said soon after arriving at Lahore Ariport late Saturday night, Malik drove to the Pakistan Capital Islamabad. “A large number of people led by JKLF supreme leader Ammanullah Khan, M Rafiq Dar, Dr Toqeer Gilani, Hafiz Anwar Samavi, Saleem Haroon, Saleem Butt, Raja Ghulam Mujtaba , several senior zonal leaders and JKSLF leaders, accorded a warm welcome to Malik,” the spokesman said.
Pertinently, Yasin Malik had to cut short his previous visit to Pakistan after his father had passed away. “At that time Yasin was blessed with a baby girl who was only one month old then. Yasin sahib’s passport is also valid up to March 2013 only. So to see his daughter after about 9 months and also to get her travel documents’ completed it had become necessary for him to visit Pakistan”, the spokesman said.
While talking to people who had come to welcome him and media on Islamabad airport, Yasin Malik said that it is the people of Jammu Kashmir who have to bear the brunt and consequences of war and peace and love and hatred between India and Pakistan.
Referring to the recent incidents on the cease fire violations at (Line of Control), Malik said that these kind of incidents are happening due to India and Pakistan failing to settle long pending Kashmir dispute.
“The leadership of Pakistan and India will have to accept this reality and accept that these kinds of incidents which raise tensions and confrontation’s and put the lives of billions in both the countries at stake cannot be avoided till Kashmir is resolved” Malik said.
He said that the longer it takes us to resolve this dispute, it would jeopardize the peace, prosperity, stability and lives of billions of people in India, Pakistan and Jammu Kashmir. Malik said that the leadership of India and Pakistan needs to take positive steps, show statesmanship and big heart in this regard. “This will enable and ensure the peace, prosperity, stability and safety of billions of humans living in this region,” he added.
Malik said that Kashmir issue is not a border dispute between India and Pakistan. “This issue is about the determination of future, prosperity and security of millions of Kashmiris. So this issue cannot be solved without the inclusion of Kashmiri’s in the resolution process” he added.
Malik said sooner or later the leadership of India and Pakistan would have to accept the proprietorship and real party status of Kashmiris and include them in the process of resolution of the issue.
Malik hoped that the India and Pakistan will show magnanimity, wisdom and better understanding and would take such positive steps that would ensure the resolution of Kashmir dispute. He said by virtue of this we all can live with a lasting peace, stability, prosperity and safety.
