Dialogue only way out to end militancy in Kashmir: Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar, June 12, KNT: National Conference president Farooq Abdullah Wednesday said that talks with Pakistan is the only way out to end militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.

He asked the government of India to open the door to Pakistan talk to her as the new government in Pakistan is willing to have friendly relations with India.

Speaking to reporters, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir said that innocent people are being killed which is very tragic and unfortunate. He also advocated for the revival of SAARC for good relations with all the neighbouring countries.

Farooq Abdullah in response to a question said that problems will not be solved by military action and ‘we have to find a solution through peaceful means.’

He said militants will continue to enter this part of J&K and it is not going to end. Whichever government will be there tomorrow, will have to face the same thing. We need to come out of these situations. We have a major Yatra coming (Amarnath Yatra). Any small incident that might take place in that will be blown up in the rest of the country. We Kashmiris are not responsible for these things,” Abdullah said.

Referring to External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar’s comments about India prioritizing the resolution of border issues, he emphasized that “dialogue” is the only way forward.

“We are the ones facing tragedies. Innocent people of the state are facing tragedies and a reflection of this happens in the rest of the country. I hope they realize that the time has come to end this,” he said. [KNT]
