Srinagar, December 26, 2012 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC) leader, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza has urged India to show sincerity and take practical steps for resolution of the lingering Kashmir dispute. Mukhtar Ahmad Waza in a statement issued in Srinagar termed India’s apathetic attitude as unfortunate, saying that it must accept the writing on the wall and should come forward so that the dispute could be settled, once and for all.
He said that Kashmiris had been locked up in one big prison with restrictions while Kashmir had been turned into a concentration camp. “The situation is getting even worst with every passing day in the territory,” he said adding that the international community should take notice of the Indian state terrorism.
The APHC leader said that the Indian government was turning a blind eye to the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiri people who despite their unabated killings were taking to streets to press for their demand of right to self-determination.
“It’s the moral responsibility of the international community to stop an oppressive regime from committing heinous crimes against innocents otherwise, the oppressed nations in the world will lose hope of justice and equality”, he maintained.
Waza said that dialogue and human rights violations could not go side by side, so first of all the Indian government should make atmosphere appropriate for dialogue process that would turn it result-oriented.
