Bazaz calls for sincerity on Kashmir resolution

Written by: Staff

Srinagar, June 6 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Forum (JKDF) chief Pandit Bhushan Bazaz today urged India and Pakistan to exhibit sincerity in resolving the Kashmir issue within a particular time-frame.

''The recent efforts by the two countries on Kashmir are laudable.

But, for a final settlement India and Pakistan will have to be more sincere. They must also set a time-frame for it,'' he said in a statement here.

Pandit Bazaz said some forces in India and Pakistan have developed a vested interest in non-resolution of the Kashmir issue, and the subsequent violence.

''They do not want the issue to be resolved and put an end to violence as their livelihood depends on the bloodshed,'' the JKDF chief said.

He said the people were passing through a very difficult time since the past 16 years. ''The masses are getting killed everyday.

The politicians responsible for the plight of the people are trying to portray themselves as their messiah,'' Pandit Bazaz added.

He claimed these people were also responsible for introduction of gun culture in Kashmir because they were hell-bent upon uprooting the democratic institutions in the state.

''The people were forcibly dissociated from democracy. The vested interests under a conspiracy converted the peaceful Valley into a battlefield,'' Pandit Bazaz said.
