SRINAGAR: Welcoming Governor Satpal Malik’s offer to Huriyat that it must talk directly to him over the issues pertaining to atrocities against civilians and other related issues, AIP President Er. Rasheed has said that Mr. Malik should move a step further and facilitate certain genuine CBMs to prove his words.

Er. Rasheed today talked to Governor Mr. S. P. Malik on phone and while welcoming his offer sought release of political prisoners languished in Tihar and other jails. He sought special intervention from the Governor to help release of Shahid-ul-Islam and informed Governor that if he truly respects Huriyat leaders and those having a divergent view point and cares for the human rights of Kashmiris, he must ensure release of Shahid-ul-Islam whose wife is fighting for battle in Srinagar and he is himself languished in Tihar Jail. Er. Rasheed also sought release of all political prisoners including Masrat Alam, Qasim Faktoo, Asia Indrabi and her associates, so that atmosphere turns conducive for sincere political process.

Er. Rasheed asked Governor to intervene and take up the matter of filing charge sheet against Kashmiris students studying at JNU. Governor reiterated that initiating any political dialogue between New Delhi and Srinagar is not within his domain will surely intervene in other issues raised with him during the conversation. After talking to Governor Er. Rasheed in a statement said that Kashmiris don’t believe in confrontation but who other than Mr. Malik knows the fact that whether Huriyat or someone else, all are fighting for legitimate political rights of people of Jammu & Kashmir and want a peaceful resolution to Kashmir dispute in its historic perspective. He said “Governor must take note of unending human rights violations and should make security forces accountable as much as he can.

Mr. Malik has every right to differ with anyone including Hurriyat leaders but being at the helm of affairs he must ensure that fundamental human rights of Kashmiris should be respected and political victimization must end. Mr. Malik must ensure that aged and ailing Geelani is released and fabricated cases against youth and other political activists should be withdrawn without any pre-conditions so that one can trust his words.

SRINAGAR: The state of Jammu and Kashmir  the Valley of Kashmir is facing the brunt of the conflict from last 28 years. The Valley is  witnessing an unstoppable bloodshed, whether a policeman, Militant or a policemen were killed in this conflict. The grave situation of the educated youth joining the militant ranks is alarmingly increasing during last few years and are dying everyday. The only question how many more?

Every stakeholder whether state government, central government, and separatist camp need to consider a policy and agenda to control the situation and stop the human loss and the  serious concern of the well qualified and scholars joining the militant ranks.In these years inhabitants of Kashmir developed their unique vacubalaries and words of psychosis like crackdown ,CASO , crossfire, abduction, half widows. In J&K, political and social scenario continues to be so depressing that  people feel no inclination to welcome anything new.

Any solution to the conflict in Kashmir will require goodwill gestures and compromises not just from New Delhi, but also from Kashmiris themselves and all the other major state and non-state actors involved in the conflict. Besides the Kashmiri people,separatists, politicians as well as the power-centres in Srinagar and New Delhi will have to show their willingness and ability to implement a mutually-agreed and principled policy to de-escalate the “conflict in Kashmir”.The Kashmiris have to understand that radicalisation and wielding a gun is not a solution. They have to realise that there is now a tacit global consensus in neutralising the radicalised gun-wielding groups.

Talking to Kashmir News Bureau, Salmam Sagar, youth president  National conference said, “it is the concern for everyone that human losses whether a militants , security personnel or civilians is going on.” "Youth of the Kashmir should come forward and try to politically compel the Government of India  to revive the special status of the Jammu and Kashmir instead of going for the extremist path seperatic politics has yielded nothing till date and we need a vibrant special strong leadership with  full mandate which can compel the Government of India.”

Talking to KNB the senior PDP leader Khursheed Alam said, "Government of India should come forward for the dialogue with every school of thought, if they really want to ensure the  politically and economically stable state of Jammu and Kashmir in 2019.” "India, Pakistan and Mainstream parties should create the environment and come forward to  end the terror , fear, disappointment among the common masses especially the youth,” he said.  Both the national need to resolve this issue through dialogues so this bloodshed will stop and  Kashmiri live their life with Peace.
