Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir National Front (JKNF) on Thursday stressed upon the New Delhi to release of all political prisoners including its chairman Nayeem Ahmad Khan, who is imprisoned Tihar jail.
In a statement, National Front stressed upon New Delhi to release all the political prisoners of Kashmir “so that an environment is created which can lead to a final resolution of the Kashmir dispute”.
“The leaders like Nayeem Khan, who have spent a large part of their lives inside jails, only for advocating Kashmir dispute, cannot be forced to change their political stance by continuous incarceration,” a spokesperson said.“New Delhi must understand the simple fact that Kashmir dispute is an internationally accepted one. So by jailing resistance leaders can only delay in its resolution but it cannot affect its disputed nature.”
Terming the recent spurt in the bloodshed as unfortunate, National Front said that only political measures can lead to end the plight of common people living in the whole South Asian region. “It is therefore New Delhi who has to leave its deceptive policies and adopt a path of resolution so that the Indian Subcontinent can have better days ahead,” a spokesperson said.
National Front said that day to day killing in Kashmir cannot change the realities of Kashmir dispute nor it can make the people to surrender. “So it is high time for New Delhi to shun the path of stubbornness and accept the historic facts,” JKNF said.
Expressing concern over the ongoing incidents in Kashmir, the National Front stressed upon the world community to play its role to resolve the Kashmir dispute according to the wishes of the people living.
