Srinagar: People-to-people contact and cultural exchanges should be undertaken by India and Pakistan to bridge 'trust deficit' that has increased after Mumbai attacks, Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Forum (JKDF) chief Bhushan Bazaz said on Monday. 'Trust between India and Pakistan could come from cultural exchange,' Bazaz told reporters in Srinagar. 'People-to-people contact between the two countries is very important,' he said. Bazaz also batted for initiation of 'serious' dialogue on Kashmir by the two countries. He stressed on the need for peace in Kashmir.
