Militancy has damaged Kashmir: Pakistani daily

Asking India and Pakistan to revisit the fundamentals of their Kashmir policies, a Pakistani newspaper said Sunday that militancy had caused huge damage to Jammu and Kashmir. The Dawn said in an editorial that Pakistan had to recognise that its core policy - right to self-determination for Kashmiris - had been distorted for too long and in too many ways. This happened because of the “armed jihad that was unleashed in the region with - no matter what the officially stated position is - the active collaboration and sponsorship of the Pakistani state. “The rights of all Kashmiris were never going to be won through violence, and a policy of militants and proxies has caused incalculable damage to Pakistan’s position on Kashmir, the Kashmir region and Pakistan too.”
