KUTA calls for talks with all to end bloodshed
SRINAGAR, May 7: Kashmir University Teachers Association (KUTA) has expressed grave concern over the worsening law and order situation in the State and has once again demanded an immediate end to continuing bloodshed and civilian killings in the valley.

A spokesman of the association has, in a statement, called for urgent political and diplomatic initiatives to diffuse the situation and to seek political resolution of Kashmir conundrum before the situation spirals completely out of control.

It has called upon the state and central governments to stop viewing Kashmir through the prism of law and order problem only and tackling it with a heavy military might. It has termed the increasing trend of youth joining militancy as worrisome that needs to be handled politically rather than militarily.

“It is even more alarming that highly educated and employed youth too are resorting to guns for expressing their sentiments and seeking justice due to diminishing faith in the state and its political establishments further emphasizing the fact that Kashmir issue is a political issue that needs political intervention and not an issue of unemployment or economic packages,” the statement said.

It added that it is high time that the government must engage in sincere and meaningful negotiations with all stakeholders for resolution of the Kashmir issue. Kashmir University Teachers Association impresses upon the government to put an end to the disproportionate and indiscriminate use of fire arms against unarmed civilians and to exercise restraint while dealing with furious civilian mobs.

It has also condemned the covert attempts of certain political parties aimed at stoking fire in the valley and resorting to vote bank politics over civilian and militant deaths and termed such attempts as disastrous for the State.
