Srinagar, June 07, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat forum Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that Kashmir dispute is the basic reason for the rift between India and Pakistan. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressing a gathering at the revered shrine of Dastgeer Sahab Sarai Bala in Srinagar said innocent lives will continue to go waste on both sides of the Line of Control unless serious measures are taken to address the core dispute on Kashmir.
He said ceasefire at the LoC is a welcome step and the Indian government must understand that delaying the resolution of Kashmir dispute can any time aggravate the situation and raise tensions between the two countries. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said on one hand India is beating the drum of ceasefire and dialogue and on the other, young lives are being lost on a daily basis. Paying tributes to youth martyred in Tanghdar sector of Kupwara, Mudasir Ahmed and Sheeraz he said Kashmiri youth are spilling their blood for the cause of freedom and self-determination.
