Chinari: The decision of cease fire along Line of Control (LoC) by Pakistan and India has allowed hundreds of Kashmiris living near the working boundary to meet their relatives living on either side of LoC which is a welcome sigh of relief for the Kashmiris . The decision of cease fire at working boundary was taken on November 25, after a proposal forwarded by Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali and President General Pervez Musharraf to Indian leadership to observe the cease fire along LoC . Both sides decided to do so and declared to observe the proposal in its true letter and spirit in all sectors along the working boundary. Taking advantage of this situation hundreds of Kashmiris now living in Rawalpindi, Islamabad and various other cities of Pakistan have started visiting their relatives living in the villages adjoining LoC . This situation is really a pleasant one and many Kashmiris have expressed their joy and hoped that situation will remain like this for ever and peace should develop in the region so that the common people should enjoy their lives without any fear of guns, bullets and shells .
