Kashmir a political issue about aspirations of its people: Sehrai

Srinagar, March 12, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir Chairman, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai has said that Kashmir is not a law and order or a development issue, but solely a political problem about aspirations of its people. Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement issued in Srinagar said that New Delhi has never been serious or sincere to address the Kashmir dispute in its historical perspective.

He said that if India believes that Kashmir issue can be resolved through its military might, it is grossly mistaken as Kashmir is a purely humanitarian and political issue. “Killing Kashmiris on daily basis with impunity has exposed Delhi that makes great claims before the world but does not want to resolve the Kashmir dispute.” “This approach will neither alter the fact of the dispute nor will people of Kashmir give up their demand for its just resolution in accordance with their aspirations,” he said.

Sehrai said New Delhi’s entire approach and agenda is always military-driven, and that there is absolutely no political process or thought in terms of dealing with Kashmir. “They are dealing with Kashmir with an iron fist and their military policy is what is guiding BJPs policy on Kashmir,” he added.

He said, we want to see a political solution to this problem as per the aspirations of Kashmiri people and in this regard nobody in Kashmir is against the dialogue, but the ground situation has to be conducive and there must be sincerity and positive intent. Sehrai said the resistance leadership primarily believes that Kashmir is a political problem, it is not a problem of good or bad governance. It is not a territorial or a regional dispute. It’s an issue about the people who are just demanding their basic and legitimate political rights.
