World com­mu­nity urged to re­solve Kash­mir, Pales­tine dis­putes

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

PE­SHAWAR—In or­der to make this world a safer place all out­stand­ing con­flicts around the world, par­tic­u­larly Kash­mir and Pales­tine must be re­solved on ta­ble through hold­ing talks. This was said by Mushaal Mul­lick, Chair­per­son Peace and Cul­ture Or­ga­ni­za­tion, a Non Gov­ern­men­tal Or­ga­ni­za­tion work­ing for global peace and har­mony.

In a press state­ment is­sued here on Satur­day, Mushaal Mul­lick said the global com­mu­nity has a long and proud tra­di­tion of up­hold­ing the causes of hu­man free­dom and dig­nity. “Kash­mir calls ur­gently for ini­tia­tives in ac­cor­dance with such tra­di­tions,” she re­marked and added that can there be an al­ter­nate par­a­digm that could help to­wards craft­ing a win-win so­lu­tion.

Mushaal said Kash­mir dis­pute is the old­est un­re­solved in­ter­na­tional conflict in the World to­day. In­dia’s forcible oc­cu­pa­tion of the State of Jammu and Kash­mir in 1947 is the main cause of the dis­pute. The free­dom move­ment in In­dian-Oc­cu­pied Kash­mir is rooted in the strug­gle of the peo­ple for the ex­er­cise of the right of self­de­ter­mi­na­tion.

Thou­sands and thou­sands of in­no­cent men, women and chil­dren have been killed or wounded. The peo­ple of Kash­mir de­mand what was pledged to them by the United Na­tions and guar­an­teed by the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil, the Right to Self De­ter­mi­na­tion.

The global in­volve­ment in Kash­mir will not only end the blood­shed and suf­fer­ing in Kash­mir, but also will have a di­rect pos­i­tive ef­fect on in­ter­na­tional se­cu­rity by elim­i­nat­ing re­gional fight­ing, na­tional ten­sions, and the risk of a nu­clear war be­tween In­dia and Pak­istan, opined Chair­per­son Peace and Cul­ture Or­ga­ni­za­tion.

It is in ev­ery­one’s in­ter­est to set­tle the Kash­mir conflict peace­fully with­out fur­ther de­lay, if the World don’t want to see the fur­ther hor­rific scenes re­placed by an even greater catas­tro­phe in Kash­mir.

The per­sis­tence of Kash­mir prob­lem has been a source of weak­ness for both In­dia and Pak­istan. The pres­ence of such a large num­ber of In­dian troops cer­tainly in­cites un­nec­es­sary in­ci­dents of vi­o­lence which fur­ther ag­gra­vates the pop­u­lace, serves as an ex­pla­na­tion for war­like sit­u­a­tions.—APP
