Letter urges UN to resolve Kashmir, other disputes

Srinagar, November 29, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the United Nations has been asked to strive for new pursuits about the honourable, respectable and dignified solutions of protracted disputes like Kashmir for peace in the world. The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, through an open letter written by Professor AG Mir, Chairman, South Kashmir Civil Society, appreciated the role of UN played in resolving the conflicts like East Timor, South Sudan, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The letter says, “Peace is a conscious, deliberate and legitimate process to end mistrust or cessation of hostilities for ensuring positive, dynamic and pragmatic approach to encourage meaningful and result oriented dialogue for resolution of the conflict in the spirit of mutual understanding with the element of cooperation. Peace is never a farsighted opportunism but purely a humanistic maxim.”

“As every country has its own set of norms for democracy, there must be democracy for the entire world where the will of the majority prevails rather than the hegemony of a few countries,” the letter added. Promoting peace and safeguarding human rights is the best way to prevent the conditions that force people to resort to violence and extremism, it further said.

The UN Secretary General told that “Presently, the greatest need for societies and nation states is to demonstrate the will, courage and commitment to implement the vital principals of human values, social justice and equality because if we have to build a peaceful world and peaceful tomorrow, we have to remember that today’s human rights violations are the causes of tomorrow’s conflicts.” Let us resolve to dedicate and engage in efforts to spread and support the mission of global peace, the letter maintained.
