Protests in Ladakh have exposed New Delhi’s designs to communalize J&K dispute, Er. Rasheed
Srinagar 01 Feb: Supporting the demand made by people of Ladakh region to open Kargil Iskardo & other traditional routes between two sides of divided J& K, AIP president Er. Rasheed has said that today’s protest marches in entire Ladakh region should wake up conscience of New Delhi and it should understand how much are the rights & sentiments of masses in state affiliated with the Kashmir dispute.
In a statement issued to FAST KASHMIR today Er. Rasheed said,” Seventy year long dispute has made life of people of entire state a hell but unfortunately New Delhi is trying to prove that Kashmir dispute is confined to Kashmir valley and as if it is a land dispute between India & Pakistan.
On one hand New Delhi claims entire J& K as it’s integral part but contradicts it’s stand by not allowing people on the two sides to cross the dirty line of control.
People of state have every right to use all the traditional routes which were operational till 1947 & New Delhi’s constant denial & attempts to mislead world community may force people of state to break these Berlin walls everywhere from Balakote to Kargil.
People of Ladakh should not find themselves alone and Kashmiris value their emotions and sentiments with high respect and regard.”
Er Rasheed added that like people of Kargil & Drass people in Rajori, pounch, RS Pura’ Akhnoor, Karna, Ketan, Nowgam, Gurez, Uri & other border areas are paying huge costs due to animosity between India & Pakistan.
He said that till Kashmir issue is permanently resolved opening of traditional routes & allowing people to take help from each other should not be objected by any of the sides.
Er Rasheed added that today’s protest marches in entire Ladakh region reject New Delhi’s claims that Kashmiris are seeking a resolution on communal lines to dispute and Said that the dispute is about rights, aspirations , sentiments & Promises made with people of J& K from 1947 till date.
