Unresolved Kashmir dispute threat to peace: report

Srinagar, September 21 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, amid complete lockdown, Indian troops are resorting to brute force to terrorize the people and prevent them from holding anti-India demonstrations in the Kashmir valley.

The troops went berserk in Panzgam area of Kupwara district and subjected the residents to severe torture. After barging into the residential houses, the troops thrashed the inmates and vandalized the household goods. The troops also smashed windowpanes of houses and vehicles and damaged property worth lacs of rupees. It has become a routine of the troops to conduct such operations in different areas of the territory. Despite restrictions, people had waved Pakistani flag during anti-India demonstrations in Soura area of Srinagar, yesterday.

Meanwhile, normal life remained crippled in the Kashmir valley due to continued military lockdown on 48th successive day, today. Millions of people have been besieged in their houses as hundreds of thousands of Indian troops continue to be deployed in every nook and corner of the valley. All shops, markets, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed while transport was off the road. Complete shutdown was observed in Doda and Bhaderwah areas of Jammu region against Indian occupation and abrogation of special status of the territory by India.

The Convener of AJK chapter of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led Hurriyat forum, Syed Faiz Naqshbandi, has strongly condemned the character assassination campaign and the propaganda launched by Indian media against the forum Chairman. Syed Faiz Naqshbandi, who is also representative of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, in a statement issued in Geneva refuted the Indian media’s claim that to secure release Mirwaiz Umar Farooq had signed a bond that he would not participate in political activities. Syed Faiz Naqshbandi said that no such bond was signed by the Mirwaiz.

On the other hand, as the world is observing International Day of Peace, today, the unresolved Kashmir dispute continues to pose a serious threat to regional as well as global peace. A report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service on the occasion of International Day of Peace said the Kashmir dispute, which is bone of contention between Pakistan and India, could lead to a nuclear war between the two countries. The report said that the Kashmir dispute remained unresolved despite the fact that the UN Security Council had passed a number of resolutions for its settlement several decades ago. The report said that India was using military might in occupied Kashmir to prolong its illegal occupation over Jammu and Kashmir. It said that the Indian troops in their unabated acts of state terrorism had martyred 95,444 innocent Kashmiris since January 1989 till date. The report pointed out that the RSS-backed Narendra Modi-led present Indian government had put the peace at stake through its recent actions of abrogating the special status of occupied Kashmir and placing the entire population of the territory under military lockdown.
