Resolving Kashmir dispute should be Biden’s priority: Altaf Bhat

Sardar Tahir Tabassum meeting with Altaf Bhatt

ISLAMABAD (KNN) Former Human Rights Adviser to the PM AJK and president of the think tank Institute of Peace & Development (INSPAD) Sardar Muhammad Tahir Tabassum and chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement, senior Hurriyat leader Altaf Ahmed Butt has said that India can not cool down the Kashmiris’ spirit of independence nor the freedom movement could be forcely stopped.

Kashmiris have sacrificed three generations and are still struggling in the presence of one million Indian troops. In a meeting here today, the two leaders said that atrocities in occupied Kashmir by India are increasing day by day but the morale of people in the valley is as high as the Himalayas.

The Kashmiri leaders said that the debate in the British Parliament had exposed the ugly face of India to the world, which would help in further highlighting the Kashmir issue and would also raise the ears of international organizations. They further said that the European Union should also have such a discussion on Kashmir while at that time there should be a special discussion on Kashmir issue in the OIC summit.

They said that Muslim countries should know that turning away from Kashmir issue may be costly. If India does not take the path of negotiations, then it will not be possible to save the region from catastrophe. Already, the farmers of Punjab have deprived the Indian rulers of sleep. Both Kashmiri leaders hoped that after Biden’s record victory in the elections the United States would use its influence on the Indian government to find a peaceful solution to the Kashmir issue.


  1. If we really want to see the Kashmir issue resolved, we should join forces, fight corruption, and avoid fighting among ourselves. The beautiful words sometimes uttered in various pro-Kashmir groups, videos, proclamations and organizations are useless if not supported by a genuine selfless desire to help the people of Kashmir. We are not here talking either for glory or for personal exhibitionism or for a thirst for power: we are here today to talk about the human rights trampled on every day in that country.
