Kashmir Policy & Strategy Group to facilitate intra-Kashmiri communities outreach


Srinagar, June 16 (KNS): Kashmir (Policy & Strategy) Group headed by senior advocate and a distinguished Fellow USA, Ashok Bhan Thursday decided to endeavour and facilitate an intra-Kashmiri communities outreach & dialogue.

According to a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), there is a dire need for mutual trust and confidence between the communities of same ethnicity to build a united fight against the radicalised elements and the terrorism including the new age hybrid terrorists and their OGWs.

The statement reads that the pattern of targeted recent killings of innocent civilians and condemnation by political spectrum, religious & spiritual leaders and civil society groups demonstrated that the soul of Kashmir and Insaniyat is strong and alive in the Valley-

As per the statement, Ashok Bhan said that peace and security is the “sine qua non” for a sustainable development in an inclusive society.

He said that people are the real stakeholders for peace therefore there is necessity for unity of all the communities to exert inclusive socio-political narrative and isolate the radical fringe elements. 

Dr MM Ansari, a former official Kashmir interlocutor said that it is unfortunate that Kashmir is back in the grip of death and destruction at the hands of hybrid terrorists violence.

“All the well-meaning peace activists have been working hard for peace and peaceful life for the people of the Valley. All Kashmiris have a vested interest and a huge stake in peace. Therefore intra community unity becomes imperative for a United effort to save Kashmir from further death & destruction.”

He urged LG Manoj Sinha to engage with the civil society and stakeholders to help intra communities dialogue process initiatives by their NGO and other concerned groups. (KNS)
