Islamabad, May 19: There is a confusion on the ownership of the Kashmir case. If one reads the UN package on Kashmir, Constitution of Azad Kashmir and article 257 of the Constitution of Pakistan, there is hardly any confusion. The jurisprudence of Kashmir case is either misunderstood or we misdirect ourselves. India and Pakistan may have agreed in June 1997 joint statement to disturb its core status and add Kashmir into eight outstanding issues, according to United Nations Kashmir continues to remain as “the greatest and gravest single issues in international affairs”.

Those who do not want to hear about UN Resolutions and regard it as history, can’t be dignified as Kashmir experts. They are hurting the Kashmir case and contributing to Indian strategy to wear away from the agreed merits of a UN supervised vote. UN has defined the Kashmir case and put in place an operational regime. It recognises that Kashmiris have rights, integrity, security and self-determination. There has to be a free, secure, and impartial plebiscite. »
