Jammu, July 07, 2014 (PPI-OT): The Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) has said that the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has showed lack of sensitivity and sincerity by not mentioning the Kashmir dispute, which is the biggest cause of tension between Pakistan and India, during his recent visit to the territory.
APHC leader and Senior Vice Chairman of the JKPM, Mir Shahid Saleem in a statement issued in Jammu said that the Indian prime minister could never belittle the gravity and importance of Kashmir dispute by not discussing it. He said it was a great insensitivity on the part of Prime Minister that he fell short of discussing political, human and humanitarian issues besieging the Kashmiri society.
He said that Narendra Modi had disappointed hundreds of families whose children and relatives had been subjected to enforced disappearance or killed in massacres, custodial killings and other forms of extra-judicial killings. He said families of the victims of human rights violations were eager to hear something from the prime minister but he disappointed the people.
Meanwhile, Hurriyet leader, Shabbir Ahmad Dar along with Hurriyet activists, Sajjad Ahmad and Mushtaq Ahmad while addressing people at Reban and Nowpora said, “India may talk about developing Kashmir but it can never change the collective decision of Kashmiris to be part of the freedom movement.”
He said that the international community was showing interest and urgency to resolve the political disputes around the world which posed a threat to global peace, though an encouraging and good step for ensuring peace and security in the world ‘but the unfortunate part is that the oldest dispute of Kashmir on United Nations agenda speaks volumes about the apathy by the institution concerned which came into being for ensuring peace in the world.’
