Kashmir dispute can’t be resolved by military might: Sehrai
Srinagar, June 08, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, has said that Kashmir is a political dispute, which cannot be resolved by military might. Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement issued in Srinagar paid glowing tributes to the four youth martyred by Indian troops during a cordon and search operation at Panjran in Lassipora area of Pulwama district.
He said Kashmir is continuously bleeding and young blood has been spilled once again with cold indifference. “Every day we carry the coffins of our youth on our shoulders and there is hardly any village or lane in Kashmir which hasn’t been turned red with the blood of innocents becoming target of the unresolved Kashmir dispute, which is very sad and painful,” he said.
Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai said, “New Delhi has to accept the ground realities and resolve the dispute politically. A meaningful and sustained dialogue is the way forward to stop further bloodshed and destruction in Kashmir.”
Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman said India’s only strategy is to use its immense military might to crush the Kashmiris demanding their fundamental human and political rights. He said the killing of innocent people has become a norm in occupied Kashmir and New Delhi is least bothered about this. “For how long the blood of Kashmiris will continue to flow?” he asked.
Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai said the delay in the resolution of the Kashmir dispute is wreaking havoc in occupied Kashmir. The international community, is also turning deaf ears towards the Kashmir dispute which otherwise can raise questions on the brazen human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian troops in the territory, he maintained.
Meanwhile, spokesman of Islami Tanzeem-e-Azadi in a statement in Srinagar said that illegally detained party Chairman, Abdul Samad Inqilabi, had been suffering from different ailments but the jail authorities were not providing him medical care.
He said Abdul Samad Inqilabi in his letter to the Superintendent of Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu wrote that he had been suffering from diseases including heart and kidneys problems besides piles but despite the court orders, he was not being taken to hospital due to which his diseases were complicating with each passing day. The spokesman said Samad Inqilabi is being treated inhumanly in jail and appealed to the human rights bodies to take notice of his poor health condition.
