Srinagar, June 25, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, senior APHC leader Professor Abdul Ghani Butt has advised the BJP-led Indian government to avoid fanning communal fires in India, as it would prove disastrous for the entire region.
Professor Abdul Ghani Butt, in a media interview in Srinagar said that the slogans of ‘Hindutva, Hindi or Hindustan’ would trigger communal tensions leading to the inevitable death and destruction.
“Now the religious extremism has taken political shape in India and it remains to be seen how the situation would turn up,” he cautioned.
Professor Butt terming the reports of the emergence of Al- Qaeda and Taliban in the valley as baseless and irrelevant said that such rumors were spread with the intention to create political disturbance.
He, however, maintained that such reports had taken toll in the media due to which the helmsmen in India had been dominated by such reports.
He urged India and Pakistan to come closer to end the Kashmir crisis for the greater common good of the people in the region. “What good can the trade deliver between the two countries when there are serious dispute pending and unresolved. I believe that India and Pakistan should resolve Kashmir at an earliest as the inordinate delay would prove disastrous,” he warned
Meanwhile, former Member Indian Parliament and Chairman of National Democratic Front, Abdul Rashid Kabli in a statement called upon the international community to adopt a proactive approach to resolve the long standing Kashmir dispute according to UN resolutions, wishes and aspirations of Kashmiri people.
