Fai’s sentence shocking -Muhammad Farooq Rehmani

Islamabad:01 April,2012: The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has expressed great shock over the jailing sentence of two years by a US Court against Dr. Gh. Nabi Fai, who was lobbying for a peaceful resolution of Kashmir, and for the restoration of basic human rights of the Kashmiris as an American citizen of Kashmiri descent for the past several decades in America, believing in the US capability to facilitate a peaceful dialogue between the two Atomic powers of South Asia. Criticizing the latest sentence of a District US Court against Ghulam Nabi Fai he said that it would hurt the Kashmiris across the disputed region sending bad message, and giving setback to conflict resolution process on Kashmir issue.
He said that the sentence passed by a US Court also raised some pertinent questions about lobbying standards in the West, which Kashmiri lobbyists might be asked to respond in the fast-track world of India-Pakistan links and interests, especially when there were no similar checks upon India’s overt and covert activities against the basic Kashmiri demands in the West and US.
The sentence further sends an alarm- note to the Kashmiris around the West who are in deep waters; both after Indo-Pak CBMs not Kashmir-related human rights issues and strained Pak-US relations after the US’s Abbotabad operation and growing defense partnership between the US and India,” he maintained.
