Kashmir parties seek ceasefire during Ramzan, Amarnath Yatra

Kashmir parties seek ceasefire during Ramzan, Amarnath Yatra

The All-Party Meeting chaired by Jammu & Kashmir Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti here gave a unanimous call for a cessation of hostilities for creating a congenial and peaceful atmosphere on ground in the Valley.

Will this "unilateral ceasefire" end the ongoing cycle of bloodshed?

Referring to J-K CM Mehbooba's claim that PM Modi should announce the unilateral ceasefire on the lines of Atal Behari Vajpayee in 2000, Sethi said that in eighteen years the nature of terrorism in the state has completely changed and such ceasefire was not possible now.

"As Ramadan and Yatra are approaching we must try to take steps that will help restore the confidence of the people for the state, " she said.

Sources, however, said there had been no effort to build a consensus on the proposal after Independent legislator Engineer Abdul Rasheed mooted it.

Addressing media over the meet, CM Mufti said that everyone present in the meeting agreed with the unilateral ceasefire and further made a decision to appeal Centre to consider their recommendation. Some of them expressed shock over the death. "We do not think that a ceasefire is the solution right now", said Sethi. "'We are not a party to any such thing", they reiterated. On Saturday, three militants were killed in Srinagar's Chattabal area and a teenager was run over by a police vehicle. "New techniques and weaponry has come up to deal with stone throwers and rioters", Sethi said.

They said there was no guarantee that the Pakistan-based terrorists groups would reciprocate if the Centre agrees to the state governments request for a ceasefire.

Mufti added that by considering this recommendation of a unilateral ceasefire, the Centre will be providing relief to the people who face difficulties on daily basis due to encounters and ceasefire violations.

Officials in the home ministry, army, and Jammu and Kashmir police said an internal ceasefire is laden with risks, while the enforcement of a ceasefire with Pakistan is contingent on the latter's behaviour. "The times of Vajpayee were different". "Today's stone pelter is a potential terrorist of tomorrow". "We are against tying hands of the Army", the BJP said.
