Srinagar: While speaking to a Friday congregation in his native village at Batingoo  Zaingir, the head of Muslim Conference (MC) Professor Abdul Gani Bhat explained that people need strategies to score victories individually  as well as collectively in the battlefields of life.

The professor turned politician said that Afghanistan and Kashmir constitute a threat to world peace.

To substantiate his observation, Prof Bhat choose to quote a verse in Kashmiri language where Afghanistan and Kashmir are equated to each other as a pitcher upon a pitcher which may, if and when carelessly and harshly touched would break and spill a disaster.

“The linkage between Afghanistan and Kashmir is understandably revealing. Don’t sleep over it. Call the verse whatever you like - a prediction, a puzzle or proverb,” he said.

“But never forget the verse does point interestingly to Kabul, Kandahar and Kashmir conjointly which is what it is that the cries in Afghanistan constitute a threat to peace and stability in the region,” he said.

Prof Bhat termed the evolving situation in the region and the dangers inherent in it, as menacingly revealing.

“Look at the convergence - intriguing convergence of Amarica,  Chana, India and Pakistan in Afghanistan. In conjunction with two hostile nuclear states of India and Pakistan in Kashmir and draw the conclusion in the end,” cautioned Prof Bhat.

Prof Bhat said that the threat to peace in the region is in no case to be dismissed as just imaginary and not real.

“The situation being what it is, let the international committee rise to help encourage parties to a purposeful dialogue with a view not only banishing the ghosts of confrontation but also more importantly in the larger interests of promoting permanent peace and achieving genuine development in the South Asian region,” Bhat concluded.
