Hurriyat Urges India To Adopt ‘Afghan Peace Model’ in Kashmir

Published

on

Can the Afghan Peace Model be replicated in Jammu and Kashmir for long-lasting peace in the South Asian region? Hurriyat Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has urged India to take a lead from Afghan Peace talks and start a dialogue with Kashmiri Hurriyat leadership and Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir dispute.

India, Pakistan, Autonomy or Freedom: What is the Permanent Solution to the Kashmir Dispute?

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq stated that after decades of bloodshed, good news for the region was coming from Afghanistan where many factions of Afghan parties and the Taliban were having a dialogue to end the 17-year-old war in their country. He believed that India would pay heed and agree to talk to the separatists and Pakistan to resolve the ongoing Kashmir dispute.

The Committee to Protect Journalists, a US-based independent watchdog body, has called on the Indian authorities in Jammu and Kashmir to immediately terminate all legal proceedings against journalist Aasif Sultan and release him from jail after formal charges were reportedly filed against him in Srinagar. Sultan, along with nine other individuals, has been charged with harbouring and supporting militant organizations.

Are Drugs, Money and Religion Driving Stone Pelting in Kashmir?

“Filing terrorism-related charges against journalist Aasif Sultan, despite a complete lack of evidence, marks a terrible injustice and further undermines press freedom in Jammu and Kashmir,” Steven Butler, CPJ’s Asia programme coordinator in Washington DC, said in a statement issued in New York on Wednesday. “Is it so hard to understand that journalists, in the normal course of their work, must make contact with the people they write about?” Sultan has been jailed since August 27, 2018, after he wrote a story for the Kashmir Narrator magazine on Kashmiri militant leader Burhan Wani.
