In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Peace and Territorial Integrity Forum (JKPTIF) has strongly advocated talks between Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and his Pakistani Premier, Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, in the interest of the people of Kashmir.
Addressing a one-day seminar organized by the forum in Kathua, Jammu, the JKPTIF President, ID Khajuria, said that since partition of Indian subcontinent in 1947, Jammu and Kashmir had remained the bone of contention between Pakistan and India. He advocated for a dialogue amongst all stakeholders for lasting peace in the South Asia.
The JKPTIF Patron, Sheikh Abdul Rehman, in his address said both India and Pakistan have nuclear war heads and there is open threat to the peace in the region.
He said that it was only because of hostile relations between the two countries that SAARC summit could not be held in Pakistan in 2016 to discuss agenda of mutual peace, development, trade and prosperity.—KMS
