LAHORE The long-standing Kashmir dispute should be resolved at the earliest otherwise the war against India would be inevitable. India has practically conducted atomic bombing against Pakistan by building numerous dams in Kashmir. The reduced Pakistani water share would turn the land barren. But thanks to the media, which has brought this critical issue to limelight. These views were expressed by the speakers at a Forum entitled 'Kashmir Freedom Movement and Pakistan organised by TheNation, Nawa-i-Waqt and Waqt News at the Hamid Nizami Hall here on Wednesday. The speakers included Member Islamic Ideology Council-Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and former Member Kashmir Legislative Assembly Maulana Mohammad Shafi Josh, Member AJK Legislative Assembly and Secretary General Peoples Muslim League AJK Chapter Dewan Ghulam Mohyuddin, Director Kashmir Centre Lahore Mirza Mohammad Sadiq Jarral and Central Leader Jamaat-ud-Daawa Hafiz Abdur Rehman Makki. Earlier, the speakers also met Editor-in Chief TheNation and Nazria Pakistan Trust (NPT) Chairman Majid Nizami. Speaking on the occasion, Hafiz Abdur Rehman Makki said that the Kashmir issue was put aside during the regime of former President Musharraf that gave India liberty to construct the dams on Pakistani water share. He opined that the Pakistani media should reply in a befitting manner to the Indian channels trying to malign Pakistan in the international community. Pakistan is in danger. We need to formulate an effective strategy to salvage our sovereignty, and to plead the case of our Kashmiri brethren, he remarked. He was of the view that the government should lift the ban from all the genuine religious outfits, and patronise them for Jehad. The war on terror is not ours, but the US has imposed it on Pakistan, he clarified. Makki appealed to Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudrhy and Lahore High Court Chief Justice Kh Muhammad Sharif to take suo moto action of the grave situation of water crisis. Dewan Ghulam Mohyuddin said if the Kashmir dispute was not resolved in the next one or two years the existence of Pakistan would be at risk. He warned India to remain in limits otherwise be ready to face the music. He opined that Pakistan should decide time frame and objectives before the commencement of composite dialogue with India to settle the Kashmir dispute. Appreciating the role of Majid Nizami, Maulana Mohammad Shafi Josh said that the Nawa-i-Waqt Group was playing a pivotal role regarding the issue of Kashmir. He said that according to the Quaid, Kashmir was the jugular vein of Pakistan. He recalled that the Quaid had declared Sardar Abdur Rab Nishtar and Ch Ghulam Abbas Khan as his successors. Pakistan is incomplete without the liberation of Kashmir, he maintained. He called upon all the political and religious leaders to unite for the cause of Kashmir. Mirza Mohammad Sadiq Jarral said that all the options - suggested by Pakistani govt, especially during Musharraf regime - went in favour of India, which always took advantage of our pro-American policies. He said India was exploiting our trade and engulfing our resources by building dams on our rivers. The govt should warn India instead of initiating dialogue, because such talks never gave fruitful results, he said.
