KEA Lashes Omar, Musahrraf Encounter On Kashmir


OSLO – Strongly criticising the question answer session between Omar Adbullah, chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and former president of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf  on the occasion of Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi President of Kashmir European Alliance (KEA) Sardar Pervez Mehmood stated that “Even though Omar holds a degree in International Law, he (Omar) has asked a vague question in relationship to validity of the UN resolutions in modern time and age”. He also added that UN resolution has given 16 Million Kashmiri people right to vote for their future, and it’s validity is genuine and relevant as the very essence and validity of United Nations is concerned. Sardar emphasised  that just because something is old, it does not mean it has lost it validity, referring to the age of UN organisation.

“Omar is not only advocating that Kashmiri people should not exercise their right to vote there destiny according to UN Resolution, but putting forth himself as a leader of Kashmir and true representative of common masses in Kashmir ” Sardar added.

Taking strong note of Musharraf’s short fall on queries posed by Omar, Pervaz said “Military rulers like Musharraf are more inclined towards undemocratic layout rather than think through the prism of democratic process” Stressing upon that military rulers are not the best representatives of people Sardar added that “People of Kashmir should be concerned about the diplomatic mindset of Indo-Pak leadership in Kashmir issue, as both countries have a habit of ignoring the true sentiments of Kashmiri people.”

He maintained that both countries should give Kashmiri people the right to choose their own destiny according to the plebiscite as per UN Resolution as Kashmir is not a land dispute between these two countries but a future of over 16 million people living in chaos and oppression.
