In the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir by India, political analysts and members of civil society have said that Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory under a UN mandate and that the illegal actions of the government India led by Narendra Modi of August 5, 2019 cannot change this reality.
Political analysts and members of civil society who spoke to the Kashmir Media Service by telephone from Srinagar said that India itself had taken the Kashmir dispute to the UN Security Council, which adopted successive resolutions calling for its settlement by holding a plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir.
Political pundits have said that the world body has failed to implement its resolutions despite the passage of more than seven decades, resulting in the continued suffering of Kashmiris.
Members of the Political Peace Movement, Kashmir Peoples Forum, Forum for Peace and Justice J&K, Sikh-Muslim Intellectual Circle, and Jammu & Kashmir Justice and Peace Initiative lamented that the global community has overlooked the important human and political dimensions of the persistence Kashmir conflict.
They urged New Delhi to release all Kashmiri prisoners and revoke black laws to create an atmosphere conducive to dialogue between India, Pakistan and the true representatives of Jammu and Kashmir to settle the dispute.
