Srinagar, Apr 04: Incarcerated Chairman of Kashmir American Council, Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai, has said the Kashmir question is one of the oldest unresolved international problems in the world and it needs to be resolved forthwith. Dr Fai, who was awarded 2-year imprisonment by a US Court recently, in a statement e-mailed to Greater Kashmir said, “The Kashmir question is one of the oldest unresolved international problems in the world. The experience of six decades has shown that it will not go away and that an effort is urgently required to resolve it on a durable basis. It is imperative, whatever be the rights and wrongs in the equation as far as arguments go, real populations with a pronounced sense of identity of their own, with their suffering and their aspirations rather than just legal title and merit are involved.” He said own his passion for the plight of Kashmir is clearly nothing unique. “As a child of Kashmir, born and raised in this environment myself, I am just one of the hundreds of thousands of youth who, through no fault or choice of their own, have become directly or indirectly involved and deeply and passionately motivated to do something positive for their country, however insignificant in the context of global affairs, to make a difference. A country can be destroyed but a nation cannot be defeated,” he added. “Our struggle from this tyranny is the song in our heart, the poetry on our lips, and the vision that solidly unites us. It is the bedrock of our determination to continue unrelentingly to seek justice and truth for the people of Kashmir, despite our seeming powerlessness. Our hope is in our unity, in our love for one another as a people, as a nation, and as a divine spirit that pervades our history as a people with a unique cultural identity regardless of race, religion or creed, and our lasting belief that we cannot be denied our birth right to self-determination,” he added.
