India not sincere to resolve Kashmir dispute: Hurriyet leaders

Aug 20th, 2014 | Category: Kashmir News

In occupied Kashmir, the Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Aasiya Andrabi, and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir National Front, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, have said that the cancellation of Pak-India foreign secretary level talks by New Delhi has reinforced the Kashmiri pro-freedom leadership’s stance that India has never been serious in settling the Kashmir dispute through talks.

Aasiya Andrabi in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “Calling off secretary level talks has proved our stand right that New Delhi never looks upon talks as means to resolve the Kashmir dispute. By talks, it (New Delhi) only means restoration of trade with Pakistan and wants to give an impression to the world community that it is serious about resolving Kashmir issue.”

She said that by canceling talks, it was evident that India did not look upon Pakistan as a party to the Kashmir dispute. “The frequent attempts by Pakistan to hold talks and improve relations with India always go at the cost of Kashmir issue,” she said. Aasiya Andrabi maintained that India’s latest posturing on talks with Pakistan should not surprise the Kashmiris. “New Delhi has been pursuing the same traditional rigid policy since 1947. The Modi government is following the Congress policy on Kashmir issue,” she added.

Nayeem Ahmed Khan in his statement in Srinagar terming the cancellation of talks with Pakistan by India as unfortunate said, the situation has made the intervention of United Nations inevitable. He said that India itself had taken the Kashmir dispute to the UN, which passed many resolutions about its settlement. “So UN is suitable third party to intervene in this regard. Moreover, it is India whose political leadership has promised the people of Jammu and Kashmir that the dispute would be resolved as per their aspirations,” he stated.

Nayeem Khan said that the UN must come forward and play role in resolving the long pending Kashmir dispute so that the whole South Asian region was saved from the destructions of war and continued conflict.
