India's illusive desire of peace in Occupied Kashmir- Indian army chief says there is need to ensure peace in IOK
Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat says Indian-held Kashmir is ‘heaven’ and stresses the need to restore peace in the region. Addressing a group of students in IOK, Rawat said there was a time when people from across the world would visit the Valley, but are unable to do so because of the prevailing unrest.
Peace in Occupied Kashmir is not possible because of Indian state terrorism. Kashmiris are being deprived of their right to self determination.

The statement of Indian army chief is humorous as India has deputed its troops in the valley that have been continuously violating the human rights in Indian Held Kashmir. Kashmir dispute must be resolved in accordance with the UN resolutions. The Kashmir movement has entered in a final phase. The Kashmiri people have conveyed a strong message to world through their protest that they never want to stay with India. If India declares itself a democratic state, it should give the Kashmiris their right to self-determination.
