Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik on Friday warned the international community of dire consequences of the Kashmir problem remains unresolved.
"Silence of the world community on Kashmir equals to criminal negligence. If the world community continues with the same behavior of negligence, it would put world into a more dangerous situation like that of Hiroshima and Nagasaki," said Malik who addressed a Friday congregation at central Kashmir's Budgam district.
Malik said the world community has been in recent past showing a cold shoulder towards various problems of the world, especially the issue of Kashmir, which happens to be one of the most dangerous issues related to the peace and prosperity of the world.
"This silence cannot be termed but as a criminal negligence," he said.
He said the world will progress enormously if it is provided a fare, long lasting peace and stability. "Wisdom, intellect, morals and humanity require the global community to rise above their petty considerations and instead of putting Kashmir on the back burner address it and solve it in accordance with the wishes, aspirations and sacrifices of the people of Jammu and Kashmir," he said.
The separatist leader claimed that the issue of Kashmir is incendiary ready to stoke a nuclear catastrophe. "If it is not solved on priority basis, it would endanger the peace of the whole world," he warned.
Referring to the August 15th address of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Malik said, "By ignoring Kashmir and only referring towards so-called panchayat elections, and saying all is well in Kashmir, a leader of high stature has done unlike of his status...It is unfortunate that today Indian leaders like conquerors tell us that there is no issue in Kashmir."
The JKLF chairman said history stands witness to the fact that Kashmiri's never ever stopped their struggle in the past and will not do so in the future also. "India must stop examining the patience of Kashmiri's and should take concrete steps towards resolving this long pending human issue," he said.
