SRINAGAR: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has welcomed the Indian and Pakistani Army chiefs for advocating peace and resolution of Kashmir dispute.
Party secretary general Moulana Mohammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement that two Army chiefs are on the same page and now it is the turn of the political leadership of the two countries to come across the table and exhibit maturity.
Pak Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said that peaceful resolution of India-Pakistan disputes, including the core issue of Kashmir, can be found through comprehensive and meaningful dialogue. Indian Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat said, “We have to get our act together, sit down together, work together and make sure that we all get united and bring about peace.”
Moulana Tari said that time has come for the final settlement of Kashmir dispute as it has badly hit the economies of India and Pakistan resulting in countless issues in both the neighbouring countries. “At a time when both the Armies are advocating peace, their respective political leaderships should also follow and accept the facts about a political dispute which is endangering stability of the whole region,” he said.
Meanwhile, expressing solidarity and sympathy with the family of Mohammad Amir Lone, of Chatturgul Kangan who succumbed to his injuries after hit by government forces’ bullets, JKDFP said, “Using brutal force against unarmed protesters is the worst kind of state terrorism Kashmiris are facing at the hands of India and its local agents.”
