Kashmir issue can’t be resolved by jailing leaders: JKDFP
Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) on Thursday welcomed the release of Muslim League chief Mushtaqul Islam from imprisonment.
The amalgam spokesman as per a statement issued here stressed upon immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners languishing in different jails of the state or outside it.
“Kashmir dispute cannot be resolved by jailing our leaders but it needs concrete political measures to ensure long lasting peace in the region,” he said.
“New Delhi and its local supporters already know that jailing resistance leaders have only yielded nothing and have strengthened the political beliefs of the resistance leaders. So it is high time for India to accept and acknowledge the basic and historical facts of Kashmir dispute so that it is resolved according to the wishes of the people,” he said.
Spokesperson hailed the steadfastness and firm political belief of incarcerated resistance leader and JKDFP Chairman, Shabir Shah and said that all the political prisoners are going through toughest times but their courage is as high as the mighty Himalayas.
He paid tributes to former People’s League leader, Abdul Salam Rajpori who breathed his last a couple of days before.
Meanwhile, a delegation has visited the residence of the deceased soul and hailed his contribution in the resistance struggle. The delegation also prayed for the deceased soul and expressed solidarity with the bereaved.
