No more violence in Kashmir

Por Olivia Rosario Rodríguez

After an extremely bloody month, if the ceasefire is approved, it will be the first time that violence stops in 18 years in the Indian region. The request made came as a result of the escalating violence in the state of Jammu and Kashmir during April, the bloodiest month of this year.

After an extensive meeting, all the political parties of the region, requested the Indian government that measure. The request chases the cease of hostilities between May and August, corresponding to the month of Ramzan and the period of Amarnath Yatra, a Hindu festival. The arrangement would be effective until or the different religious celebrations in the region culminate.

According to the head of the state government, Mehbooba Mufti, after the meeting celebrated in the Sher-i-Kashmir International Convention Center in Srinagar, capital of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, the request of all parties is that the Indian Government o considers a unilateral cessation of violence on the eve of the religious holidays and to expand aid to the population. They asked the central government to offer a ceasefire as the previous Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee did in 2000.

The head of the regional government had called all political forces before the escalation of violence in the area. In the last 40 days, 69 people have died as a result of clashes between the security forces of the Indian Government and the separatist militias; including 28 civilian victims.

Recently, the conflict between civilians and military in a protest for the death of other protesters, ended the growth of a national tourist from Chennai, capital of the southern state of Tamil Nadul. The cessation of violence is one of the necessary steps for the restoration of peace talks between the different parties in the region. The request for a unilateral declaration of the stop of violence is already an achievement the regional conflict, where there has not been a similar ceasefire since almost two decades.

It is valid to remember that former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared the unilateral cessation of armed clashes with separatist groups in November 2000. during the month of Ramadan, which lasted for half a year.
