Violence can’t resolve any issues: J&K CM
Amid the unrest in the Kashmir Valley, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said violence cannot resolve any issue and dialogue is the only way forward. She also said there was an “issue in the minds” of the people and it needs to be addressed.
“Mufti (Mohammad Sayeed) used to say bullets and grenades cannot solve issues. Gun has not changed anything. There is no way out other than dialogue,” Mehbooba said. Referring to the ongoing unrest in the Valley, she said everyone should “feel the pain” of the future generation. “Those who have other ideology should also feel the pain of the younger generation getting affected. What do you want to achieve by this (violence)? What Azadi (freedom), what Pakistan or what India,” she said. Mehbooba said the security forces have been able to contain the situation but there was an issue in the minds of the people which needs to be addressed. “We brought in security forces and they contained the situation. But there is an issue in my minds. It has to be addressed,” she added.
