Jammu, March 17, 2019 (PPI-OT):The Jammu and Kashmir United Peace Movement, an umbrella front of different organizations and forums, which believes Jammu and Kashmir a political dispute, has called upon Pakistan and India to hold top level talks to resolve the Kashmir dispute.
The JKUPM in a statement issued at the end of a seminar in Jammu on the prevailing tension between Pakistan and India said the level of anger and alienation of Kashmiri youth suggests that no amount of force as part of the India’s muscular policy on Kashmir can quell this anger and alienation.
The JKUPM cited the Pulwama incident saying the local youth, Aadil Ahmad Dar who is behind the incident, is proof of the fact that the people were fearlessly and mentally prepared to die for the cause of freedom from India. It expressed concern over outbreak of assaults, harassments, mob violence and abuses at Kashmiri people and outburst of extreme outrage against Pakistan.
The statement also denounced the incidents of communal assault, threats, targeted attacks on Kashmiris in Jammu, and harassment of Kashmiri students and people in various parts of India, social boycott of Kashmiris, killing warning of General Bipin Rawat to mothers of Kashmiri youth and large scale arrests in Jammu and Kashmir.
It said that Jammu and Kashmir dispute is cause of tension between Pakistan and India. The Jammu and Kashmir United Peace Movement appealed to the leadership of the two countries to immediately convene a high level Pak-India summit to tackle the current war-like situation and chalk out the strategy to initiate meaningful dialogue process for the just and rational resolution of Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
