Urges leadership of Pakistan, India to break ice at SCO summit

Srinagar, June 13 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has expressed serious concern and anguish over continued bloodshed and killings in Kashmir valley.

This was stated at the forum meeting in Srinagar, today. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq chaired the meeting while other senior leaders attended it.

The meeting reiterated that political engagement was the most effective way to move forward and end painful bloodshed, a press statement in Srinagar said.

The meeting unanimously agreed that the muscular policy adopted by New Delhi towards Kashmir for the past decades had failed in resolution of the issue and will not yield anything even at present.

It reiterated that acknowledging the aspirations of the people of Kashmir and working towards the resolution of the lingering issue by New Delhi was the best bet for improving the situation in the valley as well as for the larger interests of peace and progress of people in South Asia.

The meeting appealed to both the countries to lift the ban and throw open their air spaces as the ban announced by them on their air spaces was taking a heavy toll on passengers traveling by air in both nations and causing them unnecessary hardships.

The meeting urged the leadership of Pakistan and India to break the ice at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit and engage with each other. “People of Kashmir are suffering the consequences of the conflict for decades now,” the participants of the meeting deplored.

Professor Abdul Gani Butt, Bilal Ghani Lone, Masroor Abbas Ansari, Muhammad Musadiq Adil, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza and others participated in the meeting.
