S. Asian stability linked to Kashmir settlement

Srinagar—The APHC has said that political stability in the South Asian region and cordial relations between Pakistan and India will continue to remain a distant dream unless the Kashmir dispute is resolved as per the wishes of Kashmiri people.
The APHC at its Executive Council meeting, which was chaired by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, at Rajbagh in Srinagar held detailed discussions on different aspects of the ongoing political situation in the occupied territory.
The meeting terming the implementation of the so-called Food Security Act by India in the territory as an intimidating ploy, said that the Act would further aggravate the problems of the people in the territory.
The meeting was attended by Professor Abdul Ghani Butt, Bilal Ghani Lone, Masroor Abbas, Muhammad Musaddiq Aadil and Mukhtar Ahmad Waza.
The members warned that APHC would lead the agitation if the authorities failed to take serious notice of the problems caused by the implementation of Act. They also paid glowing tributes to Bilal Ahmad Butt, who was martyred by Indian forces at Karimabad in Pulwama, the other day.
The meeting also delved on the problems faced by the goldsmiths of Kashmir and said the administration’s policy and decisions regarding this trade can potentially harm this sector of economy and affect the livelihood of thousands of those involved in this trade.
Earlier, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq visited the protesting gold traders at Saraf Kadal in Srinagar and expressed his sympathies with them while assuring them of raising his voice in favour of their genuine demands.—KMS
