Srinagar: Syed Ali Shah Geelani while referring to the loss of ‘precious lives’ in cross border shoot-outs between India and Pakistan, statements related to complete integration of Kashmir with the Indian union, from BJP and RSS leadership and recent braid chopping incidents, said that “life, honour and dignity is at stake and people are feeling insecure.”
Geelani said that BJP and RSS leadership is ignorant about sensitive nature of Kashmir issue and added that ‘illegal tricks and follies can never do away with this serious issue.’
“Millions of people are affiliated with this issue and India since last 70 years however utilising its military might and deceit, failed to change and alter its nature,” said Geelani.
Geelani said that “it is wise for both countries to avoid horrors of war as it guarantees the stability and tranquility in the sub-continent.
Millions of people in India, Pakistan and war-torn state are living in uncertainty and below poverty line.”
“International community should take serious and effective diplomatic steps for final and lasting solution to Kashmir issue,” he added.
Geelani ‘suggested’ and asked Pakistan to deal “Kashmir issue as an important party and in a responsible and effective way and while laying stress on observing patience and endurance said that cross border and unprovoked firing by Indian troops need to be highlighted at international level.”
