Srinagar, March 03 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the illegally detained senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Shabbir Ahmad Shah has said that peace will elude South Asia until the Kashmir dispute is resolved in accordance with Kashmiris’ aspirations.

Shabbir Ahmed Shah, in a statement issued from Srinagar Central Jail, said that the Kashmir dispute was the basic cause of tension between Pakistan and India. “The international community was evincing keen interest in Indo-Pak affairs after the neighbouring countries became nuclear powers as the Kashmir issue has become a potential threat to world peace,” he said.

The APHC leader strongly condemned the recent killing of two youth in Bomai by Indian troops and expressed solidarity with the families of deceased. He also articulated deep shock and outrage over the murder of Shabir Ahmad Sheikh of Maisuma and sympathised with his family.

Meanwhile, the APHC leaders, Zaffar Akbar Butt, Syed Salim Gilani and Abdul Rashid Untoo addressing public gatherings in Ganderbal, Budgam and Beerwah strongly condemned the human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir. They also denounced the continued detention of a large number of pro-movement leaders and activists, demanding their immediate release. »
