SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani has said that the escalating tension between nuclear-armed Pakistan and India poses a widespread threat to a large chunk of human population in South Asia and global peace at large.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar advised India that instead of trampling fundamental rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, it should read writing on the wall and fulfill its commitments made before the international community.

The APHC Chairman expressed his deep concern over the supply of helicopters loaded with war-heads to Central Reserve Police Force and lethal weaponry and armoured vehicles to police. He termed the move a brazen military action. The move, he added, provides an ample proof that authorities in Delhi are hell bent to suppress and subjugate aspirations and fundamental rights of distressed people in occupied Kashmir.

“This war-like policy is quite contrary to the statements of Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh wherein he has said that India will change Kashmir into a paradise,” he said. “It illustrates that India is least concerned about the people, and is solely interested in land and resources of Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.

Syed Ali Gilani suggested the authorities in New Delhi to shun their arrogant and military approach and implement political standards for the resolution of the Kashmir dispute. He said Kashmir is a humanitarian issue, which can be peacefully resolved through the Indian Independence Act of 1947 that can guarantee peace and overall prosperity for more than one billion population living in South Asia.

Meanwhile, on the instructions of Syed Ali Gilani, a team led by Shah Wali Muhammad and Bashir Ahmad Qureshi visited Kachloo, Rafiabad and paid tributes to martyred youth, Shahid Ahmad.
