BERLIN : Former Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mahmood has said that peace in the South Asian region is linked to the solution of Kashmir issue and the world community should play its role to bring all the stakeholders around one table to find out a solution that manifest the aspiration of the people of Jammu & Kashmir.
He was speaking at a Round Table Discussion on Kashmir-A Conflict Worse than Afghanistan , organised by the German-Pakistan Forum here on Thursday.
Barrister said that the recent phase of resentment, anger, and struggle in the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) was totally indigenous. It speaks volumes about the frustration and the conditions under which the people of Kashmir are living under the occupied Indian forces, he added.
He urged the Indian government to immediately withdraw troops from the cities of Kashmir, withdraw all the draconian and black laws, release all the political prisoners and allow the Kashmiri leaders to travel abroad. He said that intera-Kashmir dialogue should be initiated to find an amicable solution of the issue. He said that the economic glittering in India should not blind anyone from the sacrifices of Kashmiris, urging the European communities to take notice of the human rights violations in IHK and put pressure on India for early solution of the issue. -PR
