Mehbooba urges India to talk to Pakistan for Kashmir solution

Srinagar, July 30 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Peoples Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti has said that India should hold talks with Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir dispute.

Mehbooba Mufti at a function in Srinagar, said, “We are talking to China, which has occupied our land…Hold talks with Pakistan again and open the Muzaffarabad and Rawalakot trade routes again.”

She said that the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) agreed upon by India and Pakistan was a result of dialogue between the two countries. “Then what’s wrong when Mehbooba Mufti says hold talks with Pakistan for resolving the issue and ending the bloodshed (in Kashmir)?” she added.

Mehbooba also reiterated her demand for restoration of special status of Kashmir and urged the people of Kashmir Valley to fight for it. “When India can achieve freedom from the British after 70 years, when the BJP can snatch Jammu and Kashmir’s special status after 70 years, why can’t we keep fighting for our rights,” she asked.

The Modi-led fascist Indian government had abrogated Kashmir’s special status on August 5, 2019, bifurcated it and imposed curfews and internet blockades in the territory and several Kashmiri leaders, including Mehbooba Mufti, were put under house arrest. KMS—15A
