Srinagar, November 08 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has urged all the three parties to the Kashmir dispute – India, Pakistan and genuine Kashmiri leadership – to sit together to find a solution acceptable to the Kashmiri people.

The JI spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar asked India to show due regard to the principles of justice and express its will to accept the just cause of the Kashmiris.

“The present world faces a number of problems, two of these being more critical – Palestine and Kashmir – and the non-resolution of which has caused many wars in the past and the war-like situation is still prevailing with the result that these regions are subject to the uncertainty and the human bloodshed is continuing,” he said.

“The Kashmir issue came into being when the Indian army entered the valley and occupied a part of Jammu and Kahsmir. The then Indian government made a pledge before the United Nations Security Council through a number of resolutions that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will be given a free chance to choose their political future but despite the passage of a long period of seventy years, this chance is yet to be provided to the oppressed people,” the Jamaat deplored.

It said, “Now India is denying even the disputed nature of Kashmir. The special status given to Jammu and Kashmir with legal sanctities has also been gradually eroded to the point of its becoming ineffective. This attitude can neither help in establishing the durable peace nor make any change in the present uncertain scenario.”

“By applying the military might or implementing the black laws, the durable peace has never been established nor is there any such possibility in the future,” the JI said.

The statement further reads, “At this juncture, when the Indian interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma has reached the Kashmir Valley with some agenda, Jamaat considers it proper to reiterate its stand that the final solution to the Kashmir issue can be sorted by honouring the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. The procedure for reaching a just conclusion can either be adopted as given in the UNSC resolutions or all the three parties can by mutual deliberations find a viable way.”
