Prof Butt warns against leaving Kashmir dispute unaddressed in South Asia

Srinagar, July 11 (KMS): Senior APHC leader Professor Abdul Ghani Butt has said that Kashmir is a conflict between India and Pakistan since 1947 which is the main hindrance to peace between the two neighbouring countries.

While addressing a public gathering at Botingoo in Sopore, Baramulla district he said war is no answer to any problem. “War only brings destructions and should never be preferred over peace. We seek peace in whole world particularly in South Asia.”

However, referring to the lingering Kashmir dispute, he said, “Peace can never be achieved in vacuum and in the presence of conflicts between countries.”

“Unfortunately three nuclear powers have locked horns on the Kashmir dispute which if not timely addressed through a sustained and result-oriented dialogue process between Pakistan and India, no one can check the situation from taking an ugly turn,” he warned.

Professor Butt urged the international community particularly the UN Security Council to intervene and facilitate a dialogue process between Pakistan and India to resolve the dispute over Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, another senior APHC leader Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi while leading Eid prayers at Imambargah in Budgam interpreted the philosophy of Eidul Azha. He greeted Kashmiri Muslims on the occasion.

Democratic Political Movement at a meeting in Srinagar paid glowing tributes to the July 13 martyrs of Kashmir.
