In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Kargil Democratic Alliance (KDA), an amalgam of different political and religious parties based in Ladakh region’s Muslim-majority Kargil district, has raised strong objection to the “politically motivated walk” of a Tibetan origin Monk and apprehended that it would disrupt peace and communal harmony in the region.
The KDA, in a statement, said, “The walk is a politically motivated walk from Leh to Kargil under the guise of a Peace March. We do not appreciate any such activity in Kargil headquarter that is detrimental to the peace & stability of the region”.
It further said that the timing of this so-called Peace March assumes even greater significance given the fact the people of Leh and Kargil are fighting for constitutional safeguards and Statehood under the unified leadership of the Kargil Democratic Alliance and the Leh Apex Body.
The KDA cautioned the Ladakh administration of dangerous consequences of such a move. “This kind of unnecessary provocation must stop as soon as possible. The responsibility for any such unwanted incident that results from the non-action of the Administration should squarely lie upon the Administration”, It noted.
The alliance also appealed to the people of Kargil to maintain peace and harmony and not to get provoked. “We want to clear this to the people of Ladakh that the said issue is under serious consideration of both KDA and Leh Apex Body,” it said, adding, “Dialogue is the way forward for maintaining the amicable relation that we have sustained for centuries in this region”.—KMS
