Srinagar: In a departure from its seemingly anti-dialogue stance, women’s resistance organisation Dukhtaran-e-Millat termed as “rational and reasonably balanced” the report submitted by a team of Indian “private citizens” to the government of India.
The team, led by former minister in the government of India Yashwant Sinha, had met resistance leaders and a cross section of the people in the valley in the aftermath of the massive public uprising last year.
In its report, the team had conveyed to the government of India people’s fears that another uprising, more intense, was in the offing if the political demands of Kashmiris remained unaddressed. Among other things, the report said that pro-India parties had no role in the resolution of Kashmir issue.
“The report should serve as an eye opener for all those who brush off the Kashmir issue as mere law and order,” a statement issued by DeM secretary general Nahida Nasreen said.
“The govt of India led by BJP should shun its stubborn approach and understand that the report has been compiled by its own people. They have themselves described the situation for the civil society, common masses of India and their intelligentsia,” the statement said.
She said the masses in India, as well as Indian intellectuals and think tanks, should go through the report to understand Kashmir issue.
“The report, Nasreen said, gives a sense that the voices of the people have started reaching somewhere for the people outside Kashmir to understand,” she said.
Resolving Kashmir needs no new formulas as the solution is already enshrined in the UN resolutions.
