India should hold Plebiscite in OSJK

Islamabad, MTT News Desk: The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League, Mohammad Farooq Rehmani has urged the United Nations to refocus on resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

Rehmani in a statement said, The grim political and economic picture of the turbulent region has the potential to jeopardize regional peace anytime despite Indias intrigues to shift the Kashmir dispute into background.

He stressed the UN to urge India to take a leaf from the peace agreements of Nigeria, Scotland and Philippine to give Kashmiri people their right to self-determination, plebiscite and freedom on the basis of live and let live principle.

He said that the United Kingdoms was ready to hold referendum in Scotland after 300 years in the final quarter of, 2014, despite Prime Minister David Camerons earlier opposition to the idea.

Now the same Cameron offering the Scots a straight yes-no question on leaving the United Kingdom declares, This is an important day for our United Kingdom, but you cant hold a country in the United Kingdom against the will of its people.

India should follow suit, hold plebiscite in Kashmir, make a difference and win applause from the Kashmiris, he urged.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that India was trying to take benefit out of the current regional and international situation, taking every tyrannical measure to change the demographic aspect of the occupied territory, which was densely populated by Muslims.

The Amarnath shrine cave road project in Pahalgam brazenly violated the principle of secularism in the area, the statement said, adding that India wanted to construct the road for the non-state Hindus for the first time in its occupational and colonial history of Jammu and Kashmir, in order to ultimately build a city in the name of the Amarnath Shrine around the proposed metalled road.

He stated that all efforts to settle the issue failed in the past due to Indias backtracking and backsliding. In 1948 and 1949, first India accepted the UNCIP resolutions, but later non-cooperated with the UN commission and also with the UN enyos: Sir owen Dixon and DR Frank P Grahm, making irrational demands that its armed forces be allowed to remain in control in the valley; and should administer the Valley while Pakistan should have no access to the plebiscite area. On the other hand, Sir Owen Dixon, the-then UN envoy, had emphasized some specific measures for the holding of a free and impartial plebiscite that included a temporary administrative control of the UN officials, power to exclude troops of every description, except those, which it would require from India and Pakistan. At the same time India and Pakistan were assured of equality in any right granted to lay their views before the people of Kashmir.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that from every discussion, debate and resolution it emerged that demilitarization of Kashmir was the first prerequisite of peace and peaceful way of resolving the dispute over Kashmir. The Security Council in spite of many hurdles in the way of its demilitarization plan never thought of any other method akin to the aspirations of the Kashmiris. The ideal and principled concept has no alternative but every other option can be discussed, provided India gives up its hard line of militarizing Kashmir for the sake of perpetuating her forcible, illegal, unjust and undemocratic hold on Jammu and Kashmir, he remarked.
