The Jama’at-e-Islami of Kashmir has urged Pakistan and India to come forward and permanently settle the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiris, reported Kashmir Media Service.
“Without resolving the Kashmir issue in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the people of Kashmir, this region cannot be turned into a tension-free area which is indispensable for achieving the goal of real prosperity,” said a spokesman for the Jama’at in a statement in Srinagar.
Reacting to the Indian Foreign Minister S M Krishna’s claim that Kashmir was India’s integral part, the spokesman termed it an utter denial of truth.
“The world knows that no opportunity has so far been given to the people of Kashmir to decide their political future as promised to them through the medium of the resolutions passed in the Security Council of the United Nations Organization about Kashmir,” he said.
The spokesman while reacting to the statement of the Indian Finance Minister Chidambaram that only a small group of people in Jammu and Kashmir want freedom, said, “It is an attempt to avoid the truth. If it is so, then the Government of India must not hesitate in taking advantage of this golden opportunity and provide the right of self-determination to the people of Kashmir and settle the matter once forever.
