Srinagar: AwamiItehaad Party (AIP) president and former Langate legislator, Engineer Abdul Rasheed Sheikh on Friday supported the demand made by people of Ladakh region to open Kargil-Iskardo and other traditional routes between two sides of Jammu and Kashmir.
ErRasheed as per a statement issued here said that “today’s protest marches in entire Ladakh region should wake up conscience of New Delhi and it should understand how much are the rights and sentiments of people in state affiliated with the Kashmir dispute.”
“Seventy year long dispute has made life of people of entire state a hell but unfortunately New Delhi is trying to prove that Kashmir dispute is confined to Kashmir valley and as if it is a land dispute between India & Pakistan,” he said.
“On one hand, New Delhi claims entire J&K as its integral part but contradicts its stand by not allowing people on the two sides to cross the dirty line of control. People of state have every right to use all the traditional routes which were operational till 1947 and New Delhi’s constant denial and attempts to mislead world community may force people of state to break these Berlin walls everywhere from Balakote to Kargil,” he added.
He said that people of Ladakh should not find themselves alone and Kashmiris value their emotions and sentiments with high respect and regard.
ErRasheed added that like people of Kargil and Drass, in Rajori, Poonch, RS Pura’ Akhnoor, Karna, Ketan, Nowgam, Gurez, Uri and other border areas are paying huge costs due to animosity between India and Pakistan.
He said that till Kashmir issue is permanently resolved opening of traditional routes and allowing people to take help from each other should not be objected by any of the sides.
ErRasheed added that today’s protest marches in entire Ladakh region reject New Delhi’s claims that Kashmiris are seeking a resolution on communal lines to dispute and said that the dispute is about rights, aspirations , sentiments and promises made with people of J&K from 1947 till date.
