Observing that there is a desire for peace on both sides of the border, an organisation of Non Resident Indians (NRIs) and Pakistanis have called for putting an end to the gun culture in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Militants should shun the gun culture as people on the two sides of the border want peace process to continue for solution of the Kashmir issue," leader of the 14-member Joint Indian-Pakistan Peace and Goodwill Mission John Prabhudoss said in Jammu.

He said terrorists should come to the negotiating table.

"Peaceful negotiation and peace process is a desire of the people in Pakistan and India for the solution of Kashmir problem," he said. "We are here as a group of Non Resident Pakistanis and Indians to accelerate the movement of peace."

The group will be meeting migrants and students in Jammu.

"We have visited all the provinces in Pakistan and there was a desire for peace so we have visited various parts of India, including Jammu, where we find the same feeling on the peace front," he added.
