Once again a voice of sanity about how to set about settling the Kashmir dispute has been heard in India from its own circles entrusted with a fact-finding mission in the occupied Kashmir and coming up with a viable solution. The head of the negotiating team, while stressing upon the need for a political way out of the mess New Delhi has created for itself, has termed Pakistans role as vital in the matter. Besides, he has advised his government to accept the proposals of Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. One would expect the Indian leadership to take serious note of this view as well as the outspoken observations of other unbiased and justice-loving Indians, who have been advocating the resolution of the problem in accordance with New Delhis own commitments. The most outstanding dignitary among them has been the internationally known author Arundhati Roy, who, in the crusading spirit of a human rights activist and undeterred by threats to her life, has lamented the plight of the Kashmir people living under the bayonets of Indian security agencies. She has openly and unhesitatingly urged the Indian government to honour its pledges to the Kashmiris and the world community. To those who have tried to shout her down with levelling the charge of treason, she has boldly responded that first of all late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru should be charged with that crime for reneging on his own solemn commitment. On the other hand, the indomitable freedom fighter Syed Ali Geelani has called upon the UN Security Council not to rest on its oars because it had done its duty by passing the resolutions for holding a plebiscite to decide the Kashmir dispute, but proceed with implementing them in earnest. New Delhi should also spare a moments sympathy for the suffering of the subjugated people, who, it should have become clear to it by now, would not rest till they have come out of its stranglehold.
