Oslo, October 27 (KMS): The Kashmir European Alliance (KEA) has urged the UN Security Council and General Assembly to take steps to prevent another Pak-India war.

The KEA President, Sardar Pervez Mehmood in a statement issued in Oslo on the occasion of Kashmir Black Day said that the UN should expand UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) and its deployment on both sides of the Line of Control.

He said, “India appears to be seriously overestimating its power. Although India is not the regional hegemon, it continues to behave as if it is. Coercion and force seem to be Delhi’s preferred option to address almost every challenge it confronts. India is pushing the limits without calculating the consequences. Unless such belligerence is moderated, a regional power conflict could erupt in a global one.”

He said the most tragic consequence of even the new cold war is the erosion of the collective efforts required to address the emerging existential and global threats: poverty and hunger, climate change, nuclear war, mass migration and communicable diseases.

The KEA President said destiny to people of Kashmir cannot be left to be determined by political pygmies or partisan interests. It is imperative that political leaders who possess a global vision of a shared human future forge a new ‘consensus to circumvent next Pak-India war, effectively prohibit the resort to force, control armaments and promote active bilateral cooperation to address the common challenges that confront people in South Asia, he added.

Sardar Pervez Mehmood said Kashmir feels cheated by broken pledges and oppressed by recent moves to dilute whatever little is left of its autonomy. This feeling of political deceit and constitutional oppression is coupled with a growing sense of physical suffocation, he added.
