Kashmir resolution vital for peace in South Asia: Prof Butt

Srinagar, December 28, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Muslim Conference, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt has said that India and Pakistan cannot achieve economic stability without peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

Professor Abdul Ghani Butt addressing a party meeting in Ganderbal said that both the countries should prioritize the settlement of the dispute other than economic issues, as the good bilateral relations between them couldn’t be guaranteed without resolving the decades-old conflict over Kashmir.

He suggested that India and Pakistan taking along the Kashmiris’ genuine leadership should start a credible dialogue process as Kashmir dispute was a nuclear flashpoint in the whole region and could destroy peace in South Asia.

Senior APHC leader said that Kashmir belonged to the Kashmiris so that leadership representing aspirations of the masses must be included in the dialogue process.

He also welcomed Pakistan Prime Minister; Mohammad Nawaz Sharif’s statement in which he had said that Pakistan would resume dialogue with India and appealed India to respond in the same tune for maintaining peace and stability in the region.

Meanwhile, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt along with party leaders including Abdul Rashid Untoo, Ghulam Mohammad Rather and Ghulam Nabi Malla visited Maulana Mohammad Amin Shah, Imam Jamia Masjid, Ganderbal, and condoled with him the sad demise of his mother.
