JK has become a victim of trust deficit: Mufti
Addressing a public meeting at Khumriyal in Lolab, about 100 kilometers from here today he said efforts have to be redoubled to remove apprehensions on both sides that have marred chances of reconciliation resulting in untold miseries to the people of the region, J&K being the worst sufferer.
Mufti said it was unfortunate that over the past six decades of relationship the state and rest of the country have lost confidence of each other a fact that has to be publicly recognized in order to be able to find a remedy. “The security establishment in New Delhi is unable to come out of its doubts that Kashmir can ever become a partner in the idea of India without being tethered through force and the people of the state have memories that don’t help in overcoming their mental barriers grown out of bitter experiences with democracy and human rights” he said while calling for opening a new chapter based on mutual trust and understanding.

He said Peoples Democratic Party was now spearheading the movement for resolution, democracy and empowerment and it would take the mission to its logical conclusion with the overwhelming support of the people it is receiving in every area of the state.
