Madni appeals Pak, Hurriyat to be part of peace initiative
Also appeals youth and civil society to create common ground for peace and resolution
Srinagar: PDP Vice President Mohammad Sartaj Madni has said that involvement of Pakistan and Hurriyat in resolving the Kashmir problem can become a reality soon and expressed hope that both will respond to New Delhi’s offer and help relieve people of the subcontinent from agonies and suffering.
Addressing a public gathering at Kulgam he said Indo-Pak confrontation and perpetual insurgency have wrought havoc and people of Jammu and Kashmir have suffered the worst.
He said Indo-pak borders are witness to displacements and deaths. Hinterlands of the state are wrapped in anger and violence. A dismayed generation is in a defying state. In such a scenario no stake holder can and should run away from owning responsibility to contribute to ice-breaking for peace and resolution.
Madni said PDP leadership has been consistent in their effort to create conducive atmosphere for dialogue at various levels. Present leadership is doing its best to plead for sustainable moves which could help engage all concerned into a meaningful activity for peace and reconciliation. He said agenda of alliance is an open evidence of what PDP stands for.
Madni said the latest ceasefire move has now become all the more meaningful move as it is followed by essentially a much bigger move in the offer of dialogue to Pakistan and Hurriyat from New Delhi.
Appealing Hurriyat to facilitate the process and asking Pakistan not to miss the bus, Madni said people of Jammu and Kashmir should not be let down and should not be made victims of obsessions, intransigence or political expediency.
