Seeking cessation of tension and an immediate de-escalation on borders, Senior CPI(M) leader and MLA M Y Tarigami on Monday asked India and Pakistan to set dialogue process in motion to resolve all outstanding issues, including Kashmir.

“Kashmir issue is a festering wound in south Asia and endangers peace in the whole region. The leadership of both the countries (India and Pakistan) need to show courage and initiate the process of dialogue to resolve all outstanding issues, including Kashmir,” Tarigami, who represents Kulgam constituency in south Kashmir in the state assembly, said in a statement in Srinagar.

He said it was “unfortunate” that the two countries which have a number of challenges in common are seen “indulging in accusations and counter accusations” against each other. “The tragedy of fragile relations between the two countries is that the painstaking progress for peace at different levels can be overturned in an instant by a single incident of violence.

It has become imperative in the interests of the entire south Asian region that the leadership of India and Pakistan must rise to the occasion and ensure cessation of tension across the border,” the CPI(M) leader said.

He appealed to “democratic forces” in both the countries to raise their voice and force their respective leadership to put an end to this “jingoistic hysteria”.

“War and violence is not an option but can only result in massive devastation and destruction,” Tarigami said, adding “it is tragic that lakhs of people living cross the Line of Control and International Border have been forced once again to migrate to other places. Their sufferings are immense and unfortunately there is no infrastructure in place to accommodate and rehabilitate these poor sufferers,” Tarigami said.

He urged the Union government to take effective and immediate measures for their rehabilitation.

        This guy Tarigami deserve a mental check if he's not aware of situation in JandK. Its 70 years India talking to this deaf country and people like you,yachuri,digvijay singh and many who are on 's payroll deserve deport to country you supporting. Talk on what ?? Kashmir belongs to India and thats fact and I think why India has to talk to anybody about his own land,this phrase of kashmir to discuss is totally wrong and unwarrented. India should talk about POK rest nothing and these traiter of kashmir should be dealt with fist and no remorse to these deshdrohi's.

          These communist guys should close shop and go home. Communism has been dead and buried by the people who invented it because of its utter failure.
