Srinagar, November 16, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM), Aasiya Andrabi, has said that dialogue with India will never be acceptable until New Delhi accepts disputed nature of Jammu and Kashmir. Aasiya Andrabi in a media interview in Srinagar said that India had the same policy vis-à-vis Kashmir dispute and all the pro-India political parties had the same stand. “They issue different statements regarding Kashmir issue during elections but once they come to power, their policy about Kashmir remains the same,” she added.
“How can there be dialogue with India when it says that Kashmir is its integral part and Kashmiris are their own people?” the DeM Chairperson maintained.
Aasiya Andrabi said that unless the core issue was addressed, the demand of revocation of draconian law, Armed Forces Special Powers Act, and demilitarization would be meaningless and such demands would only be vital if India acknowledged that the Kashmir dispute should be resolved in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
