Rights defender seeks resolution of Kashmir issue through tripartite dialogue

Human rights defender from Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) Syed Mujtaba called on OP Shah, noted political analyst and track II diplomat, who heads the Centre for Peace and Progress, at Delhi, to discuss the concerns about the Article 35A of the Constitution, which relates to special rights and privileges of the state's permanent residents, and early resolution (of K-issue) and meaningful tri-party dialogue as the best way to resolve the Kashmir issue.
The meeting comes after Shah met all across political spectrum in the Kashmir valley last week.
“For the past seven decades the people of Kashmir remain trapped in status quo. The baggage of history weighs heavy on us. And the change in this shift is possible only through dialogue — dialogue as we all understand is currently the most civilised and humane way to resolve conflicts”, Mujtaba said.
He stressed, “India and Pakistan should resume the dialogue process and engage people of J&K for an acceptable solution”, adding, it should be a tripartite dialogue, involving people from J&K for resolving Kashmir issue, which will be imperative for lasting peace in the South Asian region.
