Mukhtar Waza denounced Rajnath Singh’s statement, says war isn’t the solution “Kashmir is political issue, needs political resolution”


20140829_144346Srinagar,August 29,2014(CNS);-Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Senior APHC leader and Jammu Kashmir Peoples league Chairman, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza on Friday denounced the statement of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in which he (Rajnath Singh) had said that he had directed his armed forces to continue firing on Line of Control (LOC).

Accompanied by senior party leaders including Imtiyaz Ahmad Reshi and Er Fayaz Ahmad, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza while addressing, Friday prayers in Noorpora area of Tral in South Kashmir, said that the way Narendra Modi government is dealing with Kashmir issue will definitely have serious repercussions. He said that from cancelling of sectary level talks with Pakistan and now directing forces to continue firing on Line of Control can prove disastrous for whole of the south Asian region.

“Narendra Modi government has now picked up hard-line for Kashmir and Kashmiri which is evident from the fact that they ignored peaceful means by calling off the talks and now instead of trying to stop the LOC skirmish is fueling it by encouraging its forces to continue firing, which will surely sink the boat of whole South Asian.” Warned Mukhtar Ahmad Waza

He said that dialogue was the only way to move forward and hence both the countries must adopt it for strengthening the bilateral relations. “India and Pakistan can only prosper if they succeed in strengthening the bilateral relations which is only possible after the peaceful resolution of Kashmir conflict.” said, Waza.

 Waza said that Kashmir is a political problem and must be resolved through tripartite talks as bilateral talks have failed to yield results in the past. “War is not the solution, war can only bring disaster, so the ultimate solution of the problems lies in the dialogue process, hence both the countries along with genuine leadership of oppressed Kashmiri people must sit and negotiate for resolving the Kashmir dispute according to whishes and aspirations of Kashmiri people who have scarified their lives from past over six decades.” Mukhtar Ahmad Waza told gathering.

He said that people of Jammu and Kashmir will never allow the countries to confront each other in the state which has witness bloodshed and grave human rights violations perpetrated by Indian armed forces from past over 23 years, as the confrontation of nuclear armed countries was taking the precious lives of Kashmiri people on both sides of Line of Control (LOC).

Stressing on the unity of pro-freedom leadership and Kashmiri nation, Waza said, “At a time when new Delhi has once again started using military approach towards Kashmir issue, unity of pro-freedom leadership and nation is the need of the hour to confront the Indian anti-freedom movement polices and strategies.” Adding, Kashmiri nation is ready to face Indian government’s extremism.

He appealed people to stay away from so-called main stream politicians who are helping India in strengthening its illegal occupation over Kashmir.
