APHC leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that if the Kashmir issue had to be solved within the limits of the Indian Constitution, three wars need not have taken place. He said this while talking by telephone to Nawa-i-Waqt to explain why the All-Parties Hurriet Conference, did not meet the BJP delegation recently, which insisted on a solution within the Indian Constitution, even though its Prime Minister, Atal Behari Vajpayee, had said that an 'out-of-the-box solution was needed. The Mirwaiz said categorically that the Indian Constitution did not contain a solution to the dispute and that neither of the two parties to the dispute, India and Pakistan, nor Azad Kashmir, would agree to any such solution. The Mirwaizs saying so both reflects a knowledge of the situation on ground and a commitment to the cause of the Kashmiri people, who have not been able to express their right of self-determination, but which they have not given up despite the fact that the Indian occupation forces have for so many years been committing unparalleled brutalities. This also gives the lie to those who talk glibly of peace between the two countries, and makes it clear that the Kashmiri people will continue their struggle until they achieve their right to self-determination, to which India has agreed, not just to the principle, but also the mechanism, in the shape of a UN-supervised plebiscite, as expressed in the UNSC resolutions on the subject. Apart from being a party to the dispute, Pakistan also has a commitment to providing political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people in their freedom struggle. Though the Mirwaiz did not mention it, that is an extremely crucial role which Pakistan must be willing to play, and must not give up the Kashmir cause out of a misplaced desire to curry favour with India, which will not even then leave it alone, because of the deep-seated animus it has against it.
