  1. 1. Beenish Traiq Zuberi Article on Kashmir issue Kashmir is a disputed region between India and Pakistan, which has vitiated the political environment of the Indian Subcontinent. The Kashmir issue stands as a debacle for nearly seven decades and there has been almost no progress in resolving the problem. To understand the causes of the conflict, the historic Partition of India has to be referenced. Under the British Rule, Indian Subcontinent was mainly inhabited by the two major religious groups, Hindus and Muslims. The two communities had friendly relationships and they offered a united struggle to achieve independence from the British Rule during the later half of the Nineteenth Century. But undercurrents of tension between the two communities became forceful with the lapse of time. Power politics between All India Muslim League and Indian National Congress (the two major political powers of the undivided India) culminated at widespread communal tension and violence during the 1930s and early 1940s. Consequently, the colossal task of partitioning India became unavoidable. After the Partition in 1947, Pakistan emerged as
  2. 2. a Muslim dominated state while India emerged as a secular, democratic country. And the province of Kashmir, which is situated at the border of the two countries, got tangled and entrapped between them. With the lapse of time, Pakistan affirmatively sticks to its policy of extending ‘moral support’ to the separatists in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) . In such a state of affair, the common Kashmiris are suffering most. The innocent people are being victimized by baneful separatist propaganda. The root cause of the Kashmir issue is the denial of the right to self-determination to the Kashmiri people, emphasized and added that warmongering is not in the interest of India or Pakistan. Whenever there's a crisis such as this, we go to the UN Security Council. It is routine, particularly when there are threats from India. It's the UNSC's responsibility to maintain peace. That's the first destination of any country when there's a threat to peace and security. Currently, MODI’S abrupt and illegal move to annex occupied J&Kwas a moment of truth for Pakistan, the Kashmiri people, India’s ‘secularists” and the world community. Pakistan will continue playing its constructive role towards peaceful solution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.A just and peaceful resolution of the J&K dispute by the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir is a sine qua non for lasting peace in South Asia. Thousands of Kashmiris have lost their lives and thousands more are languishing in Indian jails. A just and peaceful resolution of the J&K dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the people of J&K is a sine qua non for lasting peace
  3. 3. is South Asia. On this day we reaffirm our resolve to stand by our brothers and sisters in their valiant struggle for their just cause. The peaceful people of J&K continue to suffer. Pakistan's Kashmir policy was at a decisive point and had apprised the world leaders about the plight of the 8 million Kashmiri people in J&K. Taking the nation in confidence, the PM of Pakistan said our government came into power with the pledge to have good relations with all its neighbors as it believed that better ties were vital for uplifting their people from poverty, unemployment and to address shared issues of climate change and environment. But every peace move taken by Pakistan was frustrated by India with leveling of unfounded allegations. On behalf of the Government and the people of Pakistan, we as a nation reaffirm Pakistan’s firm commitment to a just and peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the people of J&K and the protection of their fundamental rights. Kashmir issue has been the primary cause of diplomatic, political, and military standoff between India and Pakistan. Of late, both the sides are showing interest to begin bilateral talks once again. The way to this conflict resolution lies in the methods of psychological intervention. Psychological perspective of the problem is more propound than its military, political, and diplomatic dimensions and interpretations. Unlike the “sharp rise in the ideal of Hindu nationalism”, solution to Kashmir issue lies in the acceptance of the fact that the common Kashmiris deserve to live a normal and peaceful life. India and Pakistan both must come forward to eradicate the terrorist
  4. 4. organizations functional in Kashmir, and continue the bilateral talks. The confidence building measures must be initiated meaningfully. In this way, by mutual goodwill, the political authorities of India and Pakistan can bring peace to the doomed province. Pakistan invites India to engage in a comprehensive sustained and result-oriented dialogue process.
