Lives lost due to unresolved Kashmir issue: Shabir Shah

SRINAGAR - Stressing upon various stakeholders to come forward for resolution of Kashmir issue, Democratic Freedome Party Chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah has said the unresolved nature of Kashmir issue was responsible for on-going loss of life in the state.

“If the Kashmir issue is resolved then the deadly fight between the militants and the police forces will stop and thus the innocent lives like of Shabir Ahmad Mir will not be lost. Since 1947 five lakh people of the valley have sacrificed their lives for the freedom struggle but the Indian authorities have never paid any heed to it and are always usurping their rights”, Shah said while addressing a gathering at Chenegam Kulgam where he along with others  had gone to express sympathies  with the family of Shabir Ahmad Mir, who died in a gunfight with army.

Shah had also tried to visit the family on Wednesday but the police did not allow him and was put under house arrest.  

Speaking on the occasion shah said that it was because of these sacrifices that the Kashmir issue has been internationalized and the world community is putting pressure on the government of India to solve the Kashmir issue.

He said adding it is the responsibility of the separatist leadership to take care of those sacrifices and to reach to its logical conclusion.

Separatist leaders, Javed Ahmad Mir, Shabir Ahmad Dar and Muhammad Yusuf Naqash accompanying the DFP chairman also expressed sympathy with the family of the deceased militant. “The continued killings will not stop till the Kashmir issue is not resolved. We will continue our struggle till the Kashmir issue is resolves according to the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiri people,” they said.  

“DFP workers also went to the house of Feroz Ahmad Dar of Balahama whose brother Muhammad Akbar Dar died and expressed their heartfelt condolences with the family members.

At the end the DFP went to the SKIMS where DR Qasim Faktoo is under treatment and praised his indomitable courage and strength despite the difficulties confronting him”, read a statement issued by the DFP. (KNS)
