CPB Expresses Serious Concern over Recent Jammu and Kashmir Situation
The Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) expresses its serious concern over rapidly increasing tension in Jammu and Kashmir due to recent step taken by Indian government.
CPB President Mujahidul Islam Selim and General Secretary Md. Shah Alam in a statement to the press today said that the ongoing crisis in Jammu and Kashmir state has created a grave threat to the stability of Bangladesh and the subcontinent as a whole. They said, this crisis will accelerate tension and arms race between India and Pakistan. At the same time, by taking the advantage of this crisis imperialist and communal forces will make the situation complex and misleading. Consequently, the situation will turn into more complicated and conflicting condition. Therefore, for the sake of peace and security of the people of each country of this region and to respect decade long struggle of Kashmiri people, it is very necessary to resolve the crisis through a meaningful dialogue involving all concerned sections. Also the crisis should be resolved by guaranteeing more democracy instead of repression, keeping the ongoing special constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir intact, holding high the secular principles of Indian constitution and maintaining the ethnic diversity of India.
CPB leaders said, Communist, Progressive and Democratic forces of India and ordinary Indian citizens are strongly opposing the recent step of Indian government on Jammu and Kashmir situation and they are agitating in all over the India. The CPB extends its heartfelt solidarity to this just struggle of Indian Left and Progressive forces.
