Islamabad: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Amanullah Khan said on Tuesday that the plan to start Srinagar-Muzzafarabad Bus Service was in fact a conspiracy to make the Line of Control a permanent border. Talking to newsmen here the JKLF chairman criticized the government's Kashmir policy and complained that Kahimiris were not recognized the basic party in Kashmir dispute in the Pak-India joint declaration of January 6. He said that both the countries were engaged to enhance their friendship only. He emphasized that Kashmiris were the basic party to the dispute and could never be ignored. Giving Kashmiris a wake-up call, he said that the beging of Srinagar-Muzzafarabad Bus Service would be the first step towards the division of Kashmir. He said that no patriotic Kashmiri could accept the decision of starting such a bus service. He said that the visa restriction for the bus service would only mean that occupied Kashmir was the part of India. He said that such a step would also pave the way to turn the LOC into a permanent border that the JKLF would oppose tooth and nail. He regretted that the history of Jammu and Kashmir was not being taught as part of curricula in the AJK educational institutions. He said that since 1945 almost 140 nations have got independence, but the Kashmir problem remained unresolved. The JKLF Chairman Amanullah Khan said that it was our collective responsibility to work dedicatedly for the resolution of Kashmir problem so that the people of Kashmir could enjoy their full rights. He emphasized that it was the time to accelerate our diplomatic, political and jehadi efforts for attaining freedom. He hoped that the goals of the freedom movement would be achieved.
