NEW YORK: Pakistan should raise its concern on the situation in the Indian Occupied Kashmir at the United Nations, Yusuf Buch, a former Pakistani ambassador and senior aide to the UN Secretary General, said Thursday. In a statement, Buch, an expert on Kashmir, said, "The Prime Minister of Pakistan should immediately contact the Secretary General of the United Nations and, both in conversation on the telephone and in letter which he should ask to be circulated as a document of the Security Council, emphasize that the current situation deserves to be viewed in its human reality and not through the prism of calcified attitudes of inaction stemming from considerations of power politics." The U.N. has so far made no comments on the ongoing clashes in the disputed State of Kashmir where Indian troops have shot and killed nearly 20 people, except to say that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was monitoring the situation. Buch said: "The current situation in Indian-occupied Jammu-and-Kashmir is unlike any confronted since 1947.   Undoubtedly it brings into sharp focus the inherent instability of the occupation  of a territory by a  military power unacceptable to its population, at least the great majority. But it is the fearful humanitarian potential  of the situation rather than its political significance which  presently  should be of the foremost concern to the international community. "Pakistan is duty-bound to communicate the concern to world powers through the United Nations. "The Prime Minister of Pakistan should immediately contact the Secretary General of the United Nations and, both in conversation on the telephone and in letter which he should ask to be circulated as a document of the Security Council, emphasize that the current situation deserves to be viewed in its human reality and not through the prism of calcified attitudes of  inaction  stemming from considerations of power politics. Following a brief and clear explanation,  he should make the following substantive points:  --The Government of Pakistan  offers free and unhindered passage  through the Line of Control  (which is no more than a cease-fire line)  to the civilians from the Vale of Kashmir bringing their  goods for  export whether to India or to Pakistan or the world at large;     --It asks for help in arranging the necessary co-ordination with both the Government of India and the United Nations observers for establishing check-points on the Srinagar-Muzafferabad road for  the movement of both people and goods  without excessive  and time-consuming scrutiny on the pretext of security;  --It demands that suitably qualified observers be immediately stationed in the city of  Jammu on behalf of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to avert the start of the threatened killings of the Muslim minority; ( it needs to be explained here that  (a) the city was the site of genocide of Muslims in 1947 and (b) the  large-scale massacres  in the Indian state of Gujerat in 2002 were conducted by the same Hindu-fascist organizations that are at present reported to be active in the city);  --It expresses its readiness to welcome a representative of the Secretary General, appointed  independently or in consultation with the Security Council (as the Secretary General  may prefer) to act as an observer at talks between the Governments of Pakistan and India aiming at preventing the escalation of the current crisis or eruption of similar ones in future."
