On the occasion the JKPDM chairperson Ms Tanveer Fatima during an interaction with the media, said that the lingering status of the Kashmir dispute was a threat to the peace of South Asian region. She said the people of Kashmir are primary party to the Kashmir dispute because the dispute concerns their political future; therefore, Indian ruling dispensation should shun the stubborn approach to resolve the Kashmir dispute as per the emotions and aspirations of the land.
