Islamabad May 03, 2016: Jammu and Kashmir Council for Human Rights (JKCHR) has welcomed the interest of United Nations Peace Building Commission in Kashmir, says a press release.
JKCHR Secretary General Dr. Syed Nazir Gilani said that the chairman of the Peace Building Commission does not have the competence to either interpret or suggest any solution to the dispute, which is at variance to UN Resolutions on Kashmir, in particular, wishes expressed through a free vote.
Dr. Nazir Gilani has said that JKCHR welcomes United Nations Peace Building Commission’s visit to Kashmir to advance peace, however, JKCHR reserves its final opinion unless the commission meets all sections of the community in the Indian held Kashmir, undertakes the same visit of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, meets the five generations of Kashmiri Muslims displaced since 1947 by Indian administration and meets the Kashmiri diaspora living in Europe and other countries.
Dr. Nazir Gilani said that the three-fold approach identified at the press conference by the commission’s chairman Macharia Kamau for the resolution of Kashmir issue should not be rejected outright but examined on merit. JKCHR secretary general has said that primacy of politics and the local conditions as referred by Macharia Kamau, would not improve or be regarded of any consequence, unless Indian army, security forces and secret agencies stop treating the Kashmiri people as a colonial people and unless they stop committing the massive violation of human rights.
JKCHR secretary general has said that his organization fully supports the United Nations Peace Building Commission in its efforts to reach out to as many of the institutions within the subcontinent to support the peace process move forward, yet would sincerely trust that the Commission remains mindful of the equality of people and the principle of self-determination which is the basis of UN Charter.
Dr. Nazir Gilani has asked the UN Peace Building Commission to encourage India to respect the UN restraints placed on the number, behaviour and location of its security forces, during their temporary stay in the state. He has said that the commission needs to build on the proposal of demilitarisation proposed by the Prime Minister of Pakistan at the 70th session of UN General Assembly.
JKCHR secretary general said that the commission would be misdirecting its efforts if it fails to take cognisance of a low intensity war that Indian army has been waging against the civilians since early 1990. The army temporarily admitted into Kashmir under four terms of reference has continued to disregard these terms of references and have been killings the local Muslims or setting a financial reward and encouraging people to kill a local Muslim accused of challenging the Indian rule in the Valley.
