Berlin, October 30 (KMS): Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai, the Secretary General of World Kashmir Awareness Forum, has said that no settlement of the Kashmir dispute will be durable unless it is based on the principles of self-determination and no settlement will be acceptable to the Kashmiri people unless tripartite talks are initiated among Pakistan, India and the genuine Kashmiri leadership.

Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai who was in Berlin to participate in the ‘Million Man March’ announced by former AJK Prime Minister, Barrister Sultan Mehmood Choudhary, said October 27, 1947 is forever scarred in the collective minds of the Kashmiri people as on this day they became occupied. He reminded of the Ceasefire Line which not only divides the land but the families of Kashmiris as well.

The All Parties Hurriyet Conference had urged the Kashmiris all over the world to demonstrate on October 27, 2017 as a symbol of their unity and will to resist India’s ugly colonization.

Speaking about the historical significance of the Berlin Wall, Dr Fai warned that there were some quarters who suggested converting the Ceasefire Line into an international border. That proposal, he said, is not only a non-solution but also a fallacy because it mocks the suffering, anguish and pain of the people of Kashmir.

Dr Fai asked that the people of Kashmir had revolted against the status quo and how can status quo become an answer? “Also, Kashmiris wish to emphasize that their land is not a real estate which can be parceled out between two disputants. They are not chattel that can be divided between two member countries of the United Nations. Their land is the home of a nation with a history far more compact and coherent than that of India,” he added.

Dr Fai reiterated that India’s attempt to legalize its illegality rests on a bogus ‘Instrument of Accession’ by a Maharaja, which the ruler had no authority to sign. Even Alastair Lamb, a British scholar has convincingly demonstrated that the Instrument of Accession was bogus. An original has never been found, and there is no plausible explanation for a disappearance if an original had ever existed, he further added.
