CBMS failed to change ground situation in JK: Nayeem Khan

Greater Kashmir

London, Dec 7: Senior Hurriyat (M) leader and Chairman of National Front  Nayeem Ahmad Khan has said that Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) between India and Pakistan have not changed the ground situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
Khan told Dr Maleeha Lodhi Pakistan High Commissioner in UK that “India is not honouring the promise of zero tolerance made by its Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.”  
 “Human rights violations are continuing unabated, search operations are being conducted regularly and above all custodial killings are at peak depriving thousands of families of their breadwinners,” Khan said.
“Kashmiri movement is passing through a crucial phase and peace cannot prevail in South Asia till Kashmir issue is resolved,” Khan said, adding, “It is time to take concrete measures aimed at making the sub-continent safe and prosperous for the coming generations.”
He said if India is sincere to make this ongoing composite dialogue process successful then it must show flexibility in its approach. “We the people of Jammu and Kashmir are the main stakeholders and both New Delhi and Islamabad ought to accommodate us in ongoing dialogue process. Aspirations of Kashmiris are supreme.”  
He thanked Pakistan for its political, diplomatic and moral support towards Kashmir cause.
Meeting was also attended by Hurriyat Leader Irshad Malik and Professor Nazir Ahmad Shawl.
