Experts bat for including all stakeholders for lasting solution to Kashmir issue

CHANDIGARH: Rejecting military solution as the only way out for the resolution of the vexed Kashmir issue, war experts here on Friday called for including all stakeholders especially the local residents to ensure its lasting solution.

Taking part in a panel discussion here on the first day of MLF on the issue of ‘The Taliban and ISIK in Kashmir’, former Raw chief A S Dulat made startling revelation that most of the people in India do not know about the real problem of the Kashmir. He said that Kashmir issue is not the Military issue alone and army alone cannot solve the problem.

He said that though the army has been holding the ground in Kashmir since long and the situation have improved manifold even then the real solution of the Kashmir problem is not to be solved by army. Apart from terrorism Kashmir has emotive and social angle which has to be taken into account. (AGENCIES)
