The Kashmir Peace Institute Secretary General Syed Hameed Shaheen Alvi has fervently hailed the Kashmir stance of the Organization of Islamic Conference reiterated in its Abidjan meeting on Monday that Kashmir struggle has no link with terror. It is a just struggle of Kashmiris aimed at achieving their birth right to self-determine their political future as per United Nations Kashmir rulings. UN says Kashmir dispute be settled via fair international plebiscite.
In his welcoming statement the Secretary General (SG) said that India herself created Kashmir dispute, took it to the UN Security Council and got it registered there on January 1st, 1948, and got back the answer of the Security Council that Kashmir be settled through open international plebiscite to give the chance to the Kashmiri to express their will.

The KPI Secretary General thanked the Secretary General of the United Nations Mr Antonio Guterres for voicing twice support to solve the Kashmir dispute. In fact Kashmir unsolved is the liability of the UN, he added.

Kashmir is Asia’s most dangerous dispute. The region of Jammu and Kashmir is surrounded by three nuclear powers – Pakistan, China and India. Its sensitivity must be acknowledged, he demanded.
