UN resolutions provide base to Kashmir dispute: Shabbir

Srinagar, May 28, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, senior Hurriyet leader, Shabbir Ahmad Shah has reiterated that the UN resolutions provide a strong base to Kashmir dispute. Shabbir Ahmad Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar urged India to accept ground realities and shun stubborn attitude so that the lingering dispute could be settled in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations.

Terming the Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement of holding dialogue within the framework of Indian Constitution as ridiculous and unacceptable, he said: “We are committed to our stand of resolving the Kashmir issue as per UN resolutions or through tripartite dialogue.”

While reminding the Indian rulers of the promises of their predecessors, said the current regime at New Delhi deliberately ignores those statements. “The then prime ministers Narasimha Rao and Atal Bihari Vajpayee talked of ‘Insaniyat Ke Dayire Me’ and ‘Sky is the limit’ and now the current Indian Home Minister talks of within the Constitution. Actually, they (New Delhi) by proposing talks with local administration are trying to find a way out from resolving this issue.”

Shabbir Ahmad Shah said that neither the local authorities had any role in such internationally accepted dispute of Kashmir nor could New Delhi mislead the international community by making such proposals. “New Delhi, by offering such ridiculous proposals cannot find a way out from UN implemented resolutions vis-a-vis Kashmir issue”, he added.

Commenting on Kashmiri Pandits, he reiterated that Pandits were indigenous inhabitants of the Valley who didn’t need anyone’s permission for their return. “However, BJP government has hidden agendas in the settling of Pandits in Valley which is unacceptable.” Paying rich tributes to victims of Shopian rape and murder incident – Asiya and Neelofar, Shabir Shah said the culprits are yet to be identified even after passing of six years.
