Peace in South Asia linked to Kashmir settlement

21 December, 2013

SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt, has said that durable peace in South Asia can only be guaranteed by the peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt addressing a Juma congregation at Aashpora in Langate area of Handwara said that dialogue was the only way forward to resolve the decades-old dispute.

However, he said that for peaceful settlement of the conflict over Kashmir, India and Pakistan needed to involve the Kashmiris' genuine representatives with the dialogue process to make it meaningful and result-oriented.

APHC leaders, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, addressing a big public gathering at Kralgund in Kupwara urged India to fulfill its promise of giving the Kashmiris their inalienable right to self-determination.

APHC leaders, Zafar Akbar Butt, Javed Ahmed Mir and Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, addressing public gatherings in Srinagar and Islamabad areas appealed to the international community to play an effective role in resolving the Kashmir dispute, once and for all.

Meanwhile, the occupation authorities continued to place the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, under house arrest, preventing him from offering Juma prayers.

A civilian and his son were killed after they were deliberately hit by a rashly driven Indian army vehicle at Malhar Morh in Udhampur district, today.

On the other hand, a report issued by the APHC revealed that at least 165 civilians had suffered injuries due to pellets fired by Indian troops and police personnel against protesters in the past four years.

The data showed that of those injured, 118 were admitted to Soura Institute of Medical Sciences and 47 to the SMHS hospital.
