Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who chaired an All-Party meeting on August 12 on the Kashmir unrest, told the attendees that Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir is also part of Jammu and Kashmir.
The prime minister added that “there cannot be any compromise on national security but we have to win confidence of people in Jammu and Kashmir”.
An All-Party meeting was called by Home Minister Rajnath Singh
earlier this week during a debate on the Kashmir violence in the Rajya Sabha.
The Lok Sabha unanimously passed a resolution Friday to instil confidence in the people of Kashmir by adopting steps to restore normalcy in the Valley.
“The House conveys its deep sense of anguish and concern over the loss of lives and critical injuries caused by the deteriorating situation. It is of the firm and considered view that there cannot be any compromise on unity, integrity and national security. It is equally an imperative that urgent steps are taken to restore order and peace for the alleviation of the sufferings of the people,” said The resolution read out by Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.
Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, had earlier said there is a murder of humanity and democracy in Kashmir and called for integration of hearts for an amicable solution to the crisis.
Escalating his attack on the Prime Minister, Azad said he tweets about everything, but not Kashmir.
The Communist Party of India (Marxist) told the Rajya Sabha if there is a trust deficit, the government has to create an atmosphere of trust in Kashmir.
Kashmir valley has witnessed one of its worst bouts of unrest in recent times, after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter on July 8. In the protests that followed, 55 people have lost their lives in the weeks of demonstrations and clashes between Kashmiri protesters and security forces, and thousands have sustained injuries. Many were blinded due to pelleting carried out by security forces.
