Srinagar : Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement chairman, Zafar Akbar Bhat on Sunday said that all principal stake holders of Kashmir dispute should take meaningful and sincere steps to resolve issue as per aspirations of people of disputed state.
People in &K are not war mongers, however prevailing bloodshed has pushed them to wall. Soon after his prolonged detention, Zafar Akbar convened an executive meeting of his party, held in Srinagar, Bhat said .

Responding to the Indian home minister, Raj Nath Singh’s statement Zafar Akbar said that instead of rhetoric, parroting and looking issue through a particular prism, all parties to the issue should take into consideration the horrible and grim situation in state and should take measures for resolving the issue as per aspirations of people and as per guidelines laid in UN resolutions. Kashmir belongs to kashmiris and both Indo Pak have to free the state Jammu kashmir.
Kashmir is bleeding since past seven decades, Zafar Akbar said and added that the issue has proved a sore for whole continent hence no body on earth can deny the necessity of talks between all its stake holders, however mere rhetoric or slogans can never delver any good, instead sincer and rightful steps are needed to resolve this issue, Zafar added.
