Sept. 14, Srinagar: Dr. Farooq Abdullah, the president of the National Conference and a member of parliament, advocated for India and Pakistan to engage in conversation in order to bring peace to J&K on Thursday.
Speaking to reporters, Dr. Farooq said that despite the fact that Pakistan has participated in four wars, the country’s boundaries have remained unaltered, he would always maintain that violence cannot be used to resolve conflicts.
Dr. Farooq made reference to the Kokernag encounter when he claimed that until a solution is found for the issue, incidences like this would continue to occur.
There appears to be no end to the destruction, which has been going on for a while. There are times when encounters like this take place. The administration asserts that terrorism is no longer a problem every day. Can you confirm that it has ended? It won’t end. Instead of fighting, conversation leads to peace.
If the Kokernag encounter indicates a decline in terrorism in J&K, Dr. Farooq questioned.
Dr. Farooq said, “I am neither in intelligence nor in government,” when questioned about rumours of terrorists infiltrating J&K from other states. In contrast to the past, it does seem that trained persons are entering presently. Due to militancy, our soldiers and commanders are dying, and subsequently, we suffer when people harass and ask them about their backgrounds.
