Jamiat on Kashmir

New Delhi: The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Mahmood Madani group on Thursday while asserting that future of Kashmir and Kashmiris lies with India, accused Pakistan of creating unrest and working to destroy the newly formed Union Territory.

"The inimical forces and the neighbouring country are bent upon destroying Kashmir", the Jamiat said in a resolution without naming Pakistan.

"The enemy has made Kashmir a battlefield, using Kashmiris as a shield which makes it the biggest hurdle in rescuing the people from the impasse", it added.

The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Mahmood Madani group is a faction of Jamiat Ulama i Hind, the other is led by his uncle Arshad Madani. Arshad Madani was recently in news for his meeting with RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat.

The Jamiat in its resolution, adopted by the General Council of the Jamiat at its central office in Delhi, also reiterated its "unflinching stand that Kashmir is an integral part of India" and added that it considers all separatist movements harmful not only for India but for the people of Kashmir as well.

The resolution of the Jamiat virtually nullified the Muslim colour that Pakistan has been seeking to put on its stand on Kashmir, and its attempt to sabotage the government's move to integrate the state within the Indian union.

However, the Jamiat also said that it is "not unmindful of the desire of the Kashmiri people, their self respect and the demand for preservation of their cultural identity".

"We feel it our national duty to protect their democratic and human rights. Nevertheless, it is our firm belief that the welfare of the people of Kashmir lies in getting integrated into India", the Jamiat said.

It said that "The current situation poses a threat not only to Kashmir but to the entire region. The situation demands that we launch peaceful initiatives to maintain peace and security in the region, especially in view of the repercussions of clash of atomic powers".

It appealed to the government of India, "that while respecting human rights, it must protect the life and property of Kashmiri people and use every possible constitutional means for bringing back normalcy in the region and winning the hearts of the people of Kashmir."
