MLA Mendhar visits residence of slain SOG man
Mendhar, Nov 4: Senior National Conference leader and MLA Mendhar Javed Rana on Saturday patched for resolution of Kashmir dispute and dialogue between India and Pakistan which has caused bloodshed of innocent people since last three decades.
As per a press statement, MLA Mendhar Javed visited the residence of martyred Special Operation Group (SOG) personal Zahir Abass Khan at Kaller Mohra in Mendhar. The cop lost his life during an encounter with the militants at Hajin area of North Kashmir recently.
MLA Mendhar expressed his grief over the cop’s killing in an encounter with the militants and prayed for the peace of the departed soul and courage to the bereaved family members.
In his message, he prayed for the peace between India and Pakistan so that the more precious lives could not be lost. “The rivalry and decades old complex Kashmir dispute has consumed thousands of lives and displaced many families not only in Kashmir but across the State. It is high time the Government of India should shun the arrogance and hold talks to their counter parts in Pakistan to bring back lost peace in the border State,” said Javed Rana.
Rana express anguish over the non-serious approach to such an issue which can trigger nuclear war between the two enemy nations who have already fought four major wars.
Standing on flash point of war, he said, the Government of India should not let the things go out of hand and understand gravity of the situation. “We must have good relations with Pakistan. We are unable to understand when former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and former Deputy Prime Minister Lal Krishan Advani held talks with the separatists and even militant commanders, then why present Union Government led by Prime Minister Narindra Modi shying away from the talks,” he said.
He said that there is a need to end misunderstanding and give space to peace in Kashmir instead of giving rise to the atmosphere of “mistrust and suspicion.”
“Government of India re-think and autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir in its original form to restore confidence of the people which they have lost and also hold talks with Pakistan,” said Rana, in his statement to press.
