UN Resolutions basis of K-dispute: Geelani


Srinagar, Jan 2: The Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani Wednesday said the UN Resolutions formed the legal and constitutional basis of Kashmir dispute and delay in their implementation “doesn’t mean abrogation of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination or burial of their right to freedom.”
Geelani, who is presently in New Delhi, appealed to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon to play his role in resolving Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN resolutions. “A UN resolution passed on January 5, 1949, in unambiguous words supports the Kashmiris’ right of self-determination and announces clearly that Kashmiris alone should have a decisive role in resolving the issue,” Geelani said in a statement today.
He said, “Thereafter the Security Council passed as many as 18 resolutions, seconding and supporting January 5, 1949 resolution, and assuring right to self-determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”
Geelani said though New Delhi adopted the stubborn attitude but it did not mean the nullification of right to self-determination or invalidity of UN Resolutions. “With every passing day these resolutions prove to be all the more relevant because of the ground situation in entire South Asia in general and subcontinent in particular,” he said, adding that “this issue has been the source of perennial tension between India and Pakistan and the two countries fought three full-scale wars and several other smaller battles over it, thus bringing stark poverty and devastation to the people of the subcontinent.”
He said: “Even no one can rule out nuclear confrontation between the two neighboring countries in future over this issue.”
Meanwhile, Hurriyat is organizing a seminar titled “Right to Self-Determination—a dignified, democratic and lasting solution” on January 5, Saturday, at Hyderpora here with Tehreek-e-Hurriyat general secretary Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in chair.  “Syed Ali Shah Geelani will deliver his address over telephone .The other pro-freedom leaders, intellectuals, lawyers and columnists will also express their ideas,” said a spokesman of the Hurriyat.
