Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Wednesday urged India and Pakistan to shun war hysteria, and said that war and destruction is not the solution and only sustained and meaningful dialogue can establish peace in Kashmir and the entire region.
“Peace-loving Kashmiris are always against war and destruction. We are only asking for resolution of the dispute by peaceful and political means for which comprehensive and serious dialogue is the only way forward,” Sehrai said in a statement.
History is testimony that “peace-loving Kashmiri would never ever celebrate or rejoice bloodshed,” he said, adding a political issue needs a political solution.
The pro-freedom leader added: “Kashmir is a political and humanitarian issue that needs a political solution. It a high time the leadership of both the countries to shun its stubbornness and take some concrete political measures to settle this decades-old issue once for all.”
“Unfortunately the world community has overlooked this critically important issue which has resulted in yet another confrontation between India and Pakistan,” he said.
He further said that Kashmir issue has “multiplied human tragedies and it was because of this lingering issue that millions of people are facing immense hardship and a state of uncertainty”.
