BAGH: Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement has said that initiating tripartite dialogue process is need of the hour as setting up puppet regimes in occupied Kashmir, through farcical elections will be of no avail as far as final settlement of the Kashmir dispute was concerned. This was stated by the Convenor, Peoples Movement while addressing Kashmiri refugees at their camp at Handawari in Bagh, Azad Kashmir, reports KMS. He reiterated that Kashmiris have sacrificed five lakhs of their sons and daughters since 1947 and they want resolution of Kashmir issue in accordance with the UN resolutions. The Kashmiris have rendered tremendous sacrifices for Kashmir''s accession to Pakistan, he added. Abdul Majid Malik said, India has let loose a reign of terror and bloodshed in occupied Kashmir through its eight lakh strong army while the people of Kashmir are only resisting the onslaught. The present struggle in Kashmir will continue till the last Indian soldier quits the occupied territory, he said. Malik paid rich tributes to the valiant people of Kashmir for their perseverance and steadfastness. He emphasised that the mission of martyrs will be carried to its logical goal. Referring to the death sentence pronounced against three Kashmiris in Delhi, Malik said that it is part of the ongoing conspiracy to sabotage the current freedom struggle. He also denounced the recent killing of Kashmiri youth by Indian troops in fake encounters at Rajouri in Poonch and abduction of five innocent villagers at Banihal. He made an impassioned appeal to the international community to take urgent notice of the gross human rights violations in occupied Kashmir and initiate appropriate measures to stop the massacre of innocent Kashmiris by Indian army in occupied Kashmir.
