07 May, 2012
Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference leaders have urged India and Pakistan to take the Kashmiris into confidence and initiate a meaningful dialogue process to resolve the Kashmir dispute for ensuring permanent peace in South Asia.
The APHC leaders were addressing a big public gathering organised by the Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference and chaired by the Hurriyet Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, at Botingo in Sopore in connection with the mass contact campaign.
The Mirwaiz in his address said that the Kashmiris' liberation struggle was not for perks and privileges but it was aimed at securing the right to self-determination. He said that the Jammu and Kashmir belonged to the Kashmiris and only they had the right to decide about its future.
Senior APHC leader, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt in his speech proposed that a Commission representing both parts of Kashmir be set up to devise the future strategy for the Kashmiris' movement. Others who addressed the gathering included Maulana Abbas Ansari, Bilal Ghani Lone, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash and Ghulam Nabi Shaheen.
A number of resolutions passed on the occasion maintained that peace in South Asia was linked to settlement of the Kashmir dispute. They called for the inclusion of the genuine Kashmiri leadership in the dialogue process to make it result-oriented. The resolutions also urged the world human rights organisations to get the people involved in the human rights violations in the occupied territory punished as per the international law.
On the other hand, senior APHC leader, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi, addressing a function organised in Srinagar, in connection with the death anniversary of Agha Syed Mustafa Al-Moosvi, said that the recent verdict of Indian Supreme Court in the Pathribal fake encounter indicated that the Kashmiris could not expect justice from Indian judiciary.
In London, a three-member delegation of the All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference, UK, visited Kashmir Centre London and discussed the latest situation of occupied Kashmir with Professor Nazir Ahmed Shawl and other members of the Centre. The delegation was led by Jameel Tabassum and its other members were Sardar Arshad Khan and Raja Mohammed Eshaq Khan.
