UN urged to take earnest steps to settle Kashmir dispute
Srinagar, January 06, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, a resolution passed at the end of a seminar has urged the United Nations to take earnest steps to resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with international agreements between India, Pakistan, United Nations and community of nations.
The seminar was organized by the forum led by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani in Srinagar.
“Early settlement of the dispute is also imperative as India and Pakistan are both nuclear armed countries and prolonging the dispute further can cause a nuclear catastrophe,” the resolution read.
“That pending resolution of the dispute, India is committing grave human rights violations, which are tantamount to war crimes, crimes against humanity with the sole purpose of suppressing people of Jammu and Kashmir,” it said.
The veteran Hurriyet leader speaking at the seminar, maintained that though basic amenities were necessary, “but New Delhi and its puppet regime in Kashmir are using these to narrow down Kashmir dispute as a developmental problem.”
“Even participation of Kashmiris in elections for water, roads and power has been projected wrongly at international forums to divert attention from Kashmir dispute. It is high time for Kashmiris to forge unity and take ongoing movement forward,” he stressed.
“You forge unity and I promise that the day is not far away when we will attain our goal,” he added.
He said that pro-India political parties in Kashmir were executing conspiracies against Kashmiris to weaken the ongoing movement.
Among others, Muhammad Yousuf Mir, Muhammad Shafi Reshi, Z G Muhammad and Dr Javed Iqbal also addressed the seminar.
