SRINAGAR: Reiterating its full support to the ongoing anti-India uprising, Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) led by Muhammad Yasin Khan on Sunday asked New Delhi to resolve Kashmir as per the “needs of humanity – the Insaaniyat”.
“Forget Kashmiriyat and Jamhooriyat. At least show some Insaaniyat for resolution to Kashmir issue as the Valley is facing worst humanitarian crises,” Khan said, addressing New Delhi, in a statement issued here by Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF) of which he is also the president.
“If what (Atal Bihari) Vajpayee promised is to be delivered, Kashmir needs immediate solution and New Delhi should not ignore this.”
The statement came after a meeting of KEA members, particularly the traders from north Kashmir areas including Baramulla, Kupwara and Bandipora.
Representatives of transport, trade, contractors, tourism, industries and other business fraternity including chemists and druggists were also present at the meeting.
All the district organisations resolved that they would support the pro-freedom leadership.
“We are not concerned about our business losses but we’re concerned about the killing of our children, the destruction of our families through use of force which BJP-PDP claim to justifying over use of insane number game of 95% and 5%,” Khan said.
He appealed New Delhi to initiate “much-needed talks with the Hurriyat Conference leaders, who are the true representatives of people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh”.
Meanwhile, the Chemists and Druggist Association has appealed the pro-freedom leadership to provide some special relaxation for those associated with the business as they serve in the healthcare sector.
