SRINAGAR: Welcoming the statement of Pakistan PM elect Imran Khan about Kashmir, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) on Saturday said Kashmiris have always supported and advocated peaceful resolution of the issue so that people of the whole region enjoy fruits of peace and stability.
A JKDFP spokesperson in a statement said Kashmiris have always been in favour of a meaningful dialogue process so as to resolve the long-pending Kashmir dispute. “The people living in the disputed region are struggling for their right to self-determination since decades together which has been accepted by the world community,” he said.
Hailing the statement of Imran Khan, the spokesperson hoped that Islamabad will advocate the case of Kashmir more strongly. He congratulated Khan and other leaders of his party for achieving success in the recently conducted elections.
Meanwhile, the party has expressed deep concern over the CASOs in Kashmir parts. The spokesperson said the “so-called search operations have returned to the region after so many years with the sole aim of creating a situation where people could only think about their survival and leave raising voice about their rights”.
“New Delhi is implementing its plan to silent everybody in Kashmir and it has adopted a policy of tyranny, dictatorship and domination. It is using CASOs, arrests, registering of fabricated cases and other such things to threaten the peace loving people of Kashmir whose only crime is that they demand for their political rights,” the spokesperson said.
