New Delhi: India’s renowned Human Rights activist Gautam Navlakha Monday said that the unsolved Kashmir dispute poses a serious threat to the global peace and any further delay in its settlement will prove disastrous for the entire world.
He deplored that the world had maintained silence over the killing of innocent Kashmiri people that gave a sense of impunity to India to crush the Kashmiris’ liberation struggle through force. He expressed the confidence that the world powers would play an effective role to resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations.
Gautam Navlakha told Kashmir based news agency CNS that present government of India led by Narendra Modi is fishing in the troubled waters of Kashmir. “New Delhi is busy in creating such a horrible environment in Kashmir that will wash away the whole sub-continent. Instead of resolving Kashmir issue, India is continuously laying blaming on Pakistan, little did realizing that the Kashmir Freedom Struggle in indigenous in nature and the locals in Kashmir are leading the movement,” he said.
“India used Uri attack to defame Pakistan. It also used Uri attack to deflect the attention of the world community from Kashmir uprising. It (India) has been playing a dirty game but New Delhi will surely lose this game,” he said adding that maintaining silence on Kashmir uprising indicates that India is least bothered about the sufferings of the people of Kashmir,” he said.
Navlakha said that if India takes the movement of some vehicles on roads as a sign of normalcy then it is living in a fool’s paradise. “India thinks as the disobedience movement pro-longs, people will get tired and resume their normal business, but it doesn’t realize that this policy has already turned Kashmir into a volcano that will explode repeatedly with a bang,” he said.
Gautam Navlakha said that India will get nothing by blaming Pakistan for every incident in Kashmir.
