Can Pakistan abandon the Kashmir issue?

Is conflict in J&K a freedom struggle?: "There is no hostile situation in Kashmir from Indian side. The foreign terrorists are holding Kashmiris hostile. They should stop coming from Pakistan and leave Kashmiris alone to decide their future. Pakistan has proved to be a failed state and should try to improve its own record. The struggle now in Kashmir is not a freedom struggle.", says Naavpreet Singh, San Francisco, USA.

 Gen Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan President:   No leader, no government of Pakistan can abandon the issue of Kashmir. Any effort to sideline this issue will not work because people of Pakistan are involved with it. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Indian Prime Minister: The international community should condone Pakistan-directed killings of thousands of innocent civilians to promote its bizarre version of self-determination.
