SrinagarHurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani in his fervent appeal on International Peace Day said that the human beings will not benefit from the real peace, unless equality and justice related to human rights are respected and worked out.
He expressed his deep concern over the prevailing appalling situation that entire human community is facing, and said that though man has achieved implausible and unbelievable achievements in every scientific field, however despite all this he has turned arrogant and so despotic that peace is practically non-existent and continuous bloodshed has created scare among humans, all over the world.
Appealing all member countries of UN, Geelani said that, unless the norms & regulations listed in the United Nations charter on human rights are implemented in letter and spirit, what can be achieved by celebrating World Peace Day on September 21?
Laying stress on sincerity in accordance with implementation of precious human values, Geelani said that it is pertinent to do away the with suppression, oppression, coercion, malice and barbarous approach, if we have any yearning for creating peaceful and tranquil situations all over the globe.
Geelani asked UN authorities to resolve all disputes including Palestine and Kashmir on priority and create feasible situation for ceaseless peace and stability in the region.
He also urged Organization of Islamic Countries to forge a workable alliance and play a dynamic role in reinstating global peace.
"OIC has a greater role to play and they can create history by making an end to their differences", said Geelani and added that they should activate their diplomatic and political channels to seek help from UNO and resolve issues related to Kashmir, Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Rohingya refugees.
