Kashmir becoming flash point: Geelani
SRINAGAR, July 16: Syed Ali Shah Geelani, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) while commenting on China’s increasing interest in Kashmir issue said that Kashmir is becoming a flash point.

In a statement, Geelani said that the delay in Kashmir resolution can lead to more dangerous complications and situation in the region is becoming more complex and explosive.

“China is emerging as a major alternate power against the West and now stands established. Since India and Pakistan share borders with China, the latter cannot remain neutral in the stressful situation between the two countries,” he said.

Geelani said that lingering Kashmir issue is proving detrimental for the whole region and millions of people living in region are in a state of continuous anxiety, confusion and facing uncertain situations.

Three full-fledged wars between the two countries were fought, said Geelani and added that thousands were killed and properties worth billions shattered.

“Because of the unresolved Kashmir issue, both countries are making huge investment of their budget on their military expenses, while as majority of their population is living below the poverty line and are deprived of basic amenities,” added Hurriyat (G) chairman.

Even though both countries have nuclear capability and now growing interest of China has turned the situation more complex.

Geelani said that the present prevailing situation and emerging phenomenon demands immediate concern and consideration from both India and Pakistan and urged to think above rhetoric and take considerable and tangible steps for its lasting solution.

The growing interest of China can change the discourse and Kashmir issue can take a new turn, said Geelani and added that possibility of Jammu and Kashmir becoming a battle field can’t be ruled out.

Commenting over the volcanic situations emerging out of uncertainty in Jammu and Kashmir, Geelani said that a small flare up can add strife to already charged situation.

This is a crucial time for both India and Pakistan and an opportunity for both to make history while addressing the issue in its right perspective, said Geelani or history will not forgive them for any negligence in this regard.
