He said that the Prime Minister’s emphasis on demilitarization of Jammu and Kashmir, ending of tyranny in Kashmir, consultation with Kashmiris, peace and dialogue were the ways of achieving durable and sustainable regional peace. Muhammad Farooq Rehmani praised Prime minister’s tribute to the sacrifices of the Kashmiris for their right of self-determination in front of India’s military brutalities for over a decade. He said that prime minister’s pointing to ‘United Nation’s most persistent failure’ with regard to granting the right of self-determination to Kashmiris’ past three generations should be an eye-opener to the world body.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that after the principled stand taken by Pakistan in the General Assembly, as articulated by the prime Minister of Pakistan in his four suggestions, the Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, should begin negotiations with the stake-holders and member states on the worsened conditions in Kashmir and urge on India to cooperate with the concerned parties and UN on resolving the conflict according to the United Nation’s Security Council resolutions.
