Brussels, Belgium:(APS)Chairman Kashmir Council EU Ali Raza Syed has said, suitable settlement of Kashmir dispute is essential for peace and development in the region of South Asia and U.S. can play significant role in the settlement.
In a statement from Brussels while commenting on President U.S. President Obama’s visit to India, Ali Raza Syed said, United States should use its good offices and influence to peaceful solution of Kashmir issue. He demanded from President Obama, not to ignore security issue in South Asia specially Kashmir dispute in his negotiations with Indian Authorities.
International Community should understand that peace in South Asia provides grantee to the prosperity of the region and such positive atmosphere can protect foreign investment in the area too. About American support to Indian attempt in the context of membership of UN Security Council, Chairman Kashmir Council EU said, first of all, India should implement Security Council’s resolutions on Kashmir issue. Instead of implementing the UN’s resolutions, it is India which deployed seven lakhs military forces in held Kashmir (IHK) in order to suppress the Kashmiris.
U.S. which is champion of human rights should seriously focus on peace in the region and should stop India from committing atrocities in IHK.
Kashmiris are struggling for their right of self determination which was promised by India and it has been mentioned in the UN’s resolutions on Kashmir. There should be a plebiscite under United Nations supervision in IHK in order to make logical political fate of the disputed Kashmir’s territory.
Criticizing Indian attitude, Ali Raza Syed said, by its wrong steps including election drama, actually India wants to show that the Held Kashmir is also part of its democracy. Reality is that India just wishes to give an impression of false peace and democracy in Jammu and Kashmir.
It is a fact that large scale human rights violations are being committed by the Indian forces in IHK. Indian authorities are engaged to press the mass resistance by use of force and brutalities.
Ali Raza Syed again emphasized said that India has forcefully held the state of Jammu and Kashmir but people of Kashmir want their right of self-determination at any cost.
Calling upon U.S. for its influential role on Kashmir, Ali Raza Syed said, people of Kashmir has a lot of expectations from President Obama. As America played an effective role on issue of right of self determination of people East Timor, South Sudan and Kosovo, it should play an efficient role on Kashmir. U.S. is a close friend to India and settlement of Kashmir dispute is in favour of India in particular and South Asia in general.
Meanwhile, on the occasion of President Obama’s visit to India, Chairman Kashmir Council EU also dispatched a letter to U.S. Ambassador in Brussels in order to remind Washington about right of Self-determination of people of Kashmir mentioned in UN’s resolutions on Kashmir.
