In­dian judge skipped many Kash­mir as­pects: Shah

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—The Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence, Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah has said the state­ment of In­dian Supreme Court’s judge, Jus­tice T S Thakur, on Kash­mir is an at­tempt to mis­in­ter­pret the his­tory of Jammu and Kash­mir.

Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah in a state­ment while terming the state­ment of chief jus­tice of In­dia, Jus­tice T S Thakur, on Jammu and Kash­mir as half truth said, “The so-called In­stru­ment of Ac­ces­sion has no rel­e­vance as ques­tions have been raised over its au­then­tic­ity.”

Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah said that the In­dian chief jus­tice side­lined many as­pects by mak­ing some un­am­bigu­ous re­marks. He rejected the judge’s as­ser­tions that by win­ning the hearts of the peo­ple of Kash­mir, In­dia can fill the void that ex­ists be­tween New Delhi and Kash­mir.

The APHC leader said, the open re­al­ity is that be­fore 1947, Jammu and Kash­mir was an in­de­pen­dent state, which In­dia oc­cu­pied through mil­i­tary might.

Speak­ing at the launch of book “Unraveling the Kash­mir knot” by In­dian Supreme Court ad­vo­cate Aman Hin­go­rani in New Delhi, the other day, Jus­tice Thakur said, “The only way to make peo­ple of Kash­mir val­ley their way is to them with love.”

He, how­ever, con­ceded that the present sit­u­a­tion of oc­cu­pied Kash­mir is rooted in an ide­ol­ogy that Hin­dus and Mus­lims can­not live to­gether.

Ad­vo­cate Hin­go­rani’s book ad­vises In­dia go to the In­ter­na­tional Court of Jus­tice to get Azad Kash­mir and Gil­git-Baltistan from Pak­istan. How­ever, the Chief Jus­tice of In­dia, T S Thakur, op­posed the idea of In­dia seek­ing ar­bi­tra­tion of Kash­mir dis­pute with Pak­istan at the In­ter­na­tional Court of Jus­tice [ICJ].—KMS change shower
