Jammu Kashmir National Front (NF) today said the Kashmir issue could only be settled by means of a process where the people can express their political will.
“Killings or jailing people can only aggravate the problem and add to the sufferings of the entire South Asian region that is desperately in search of peace and stability. Delhi has failed to break the resolve of the people. Lakhs of people have laid down their lives for a cause since 1947,” a NF spokesman said.
He said, “New Delhi jailed leaders like National Front chairman Nayeem Khan to create a political vacuum. However, the Kashmiri youngsters have taken the charge and are leading from the front.”
The spokesman said that Delhi must stop testing the patience and steadfastness of leaders like Nayeem Khan and set him free “so that a situation is created where a political process can be started to resolve the Kashmir issue according to the wishes and aspirations of the people,” he added.
