Need to address root cause of bloodshed, conflict: Jama’at

SRINAGAR: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir has expressed deep sympathy with the families whose members got killed and injured due to firing between Indo-Pak armies on the LoC and has asked the United Nations Organization to intervene in this grievous matter and go to the root cause of this bloodshed and conflict.
“Not only on the LoC but even throughout the valley, the bloodshed of innocent civilians is going on since 1990 and the human rights of the innocent people are badly violated. It is all because of the pendency of the seventy years long Kashmir issue which is not settled as per the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir as promised to them through the UN resolutions accepted by both India and Pakistan,” Jama’at said in a statement.
It said the people have been demanding their cherished right to self-determination since 1947 but their genuine voice is muzzled by dint of state power with the result that the civilian population is very badly suffering and they have been deprived of all the basic freedoms available to all human beings.
“Thousands of them got killed, thousands maimed, thousands detained and even the people are not enable to live a peaceful and free life. The populated areas are cordoned off at any time during the day time or night and kept under the siege of armed forces at times for days together for no fault of them,” it said.
“The sanity demands that their genuine voice be patiently heard and their grievances justly redressed by holding a tripartite dialogue between the people of Jammu and Kashmir, governments of India and Pakistan to find an amicable solution to this dispute according to the aspirations of the people. This way alone can lead to the stable peace and chances of development for the people of Indo-Pak subcontinent along with those living in Jammu and Kashmir.”
Jama’at said the use of power against the innocent people can provide no help in establishing stable and permanent peace in the region to enable the millions of poor people to enjoy their lives free from all worries. It urged the world bodies to come forward and use their influence in getting the long pending human issue resolved justly.
