Kashmiri leaders asks India to hearken world calls about Kashmir situation, shun rigidity
 

SRINAGAR Nov 1 (NNI): Ecstatic over the statement of chief observer of United Nations Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) Maj Gen Herman Liodolt, senior Kashmiri leaders have urged UN and United States to build further pressure on India and Pakistan to re-start a dialogue process and solve this tangle.
Maj Gen Liodolt has earlier described Kashmir as "tormented country" and said both parties (India and Pakistan) are playing games with it. Warning worsening of situation on Line of Control (LoC) and in Jammu and Kashmir, the chief observer also hinted at American intervention in solving Kashmir issue.
Senior All Parties Hurriyat Conference leader and Chairman of Peopleís Conference Abdul Ghani Lone said General Liodolt has justified UNMOGIPís presence here and his remarks show the keenness of the United Nations to solve the disputed Kashmir issue, reports KTNS.
"We have been calling for a comprehensive dialogue to solve this issue. We have been saying that Kashmir is threat to peace in the subcontinent. After September 11 attacks in America, international community has realized the gravity of the situation. And General Liodoltís observation is one such offshoot", said Lone.
The senior Hurriyat leader said, the global opinion is now changing and an urge is being felt to settle all the disputed issues including Kashmir. He said it is high time that India recognizes Kashmir as disputed issue and take steps to solve the issue in a peaceful manner and to the satisfaction of all concerned parties.
Lone said, New Delhiís diplomacy has failed and it has been rebuffed by all the major countries of the globe. "India should now shun rigidity and try to remove the stumbling blocks for the settlement of the Kashmir issue", he said.
Meanwhile, Democratic Freedom Party President Shabir Ahmad Shah while welcoming General Liodoltís statement said it seems that it has the blessings of UN Secretary General Kofi Anan.
"Now the UN and US should use its good offices and impress upon New Delhi and Islamabad to start the dialogue process. Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and Pakistani President Gen Pervez Musharraf can make good beginning by meeting in New York on the sidelines of UN General Council meeting", said Shah.
He said, the acknowledgement by Gen Liodolt about the tense situation on LoC should be the eye opener for the international community. "Gen Liodolt has rightly pointed out that the situation in future may turn worse on LoC and in the state. To achieve the enduring peace in the sub-continent it is imperative that a meaningful process is initiated to solve the Kashmir tangle", said Shah.
Acting Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Bashir Ahmad Bhat said Gen Liodoltís assertion has exposed New Delhi and it has now become evident that Kashmiris, who are struggling for their rights, cannot be suppressed by force.
"International community has realized the gravity of situation. Gen Liodoltís statement is a welcome step and now the UN should step-in and solve the vexed issue according to the wishes of Kashmiri people", said Bhat.óNNI
