J&K High Court Bar Association (HCBA) has its aim and objective and its stands for the resolution of Kashmir dispute only by implementing the United Nation Security Council resolutions for establishing a durable peace in the sub-continent.
In terms of 28 Security Council Resolutions including the two passed by the United Nation’s Commission for India and Pakistan, the world community as well as India and Pakistan are obliged to hold a plebiscite in the State of J&K to enable the people to decide about their future, as has been done by the people of other princely states in terms of Indian Independence Act of 1947. That the right of self-determination guaranteed by the security council resolutions to the people of Kashmir, is also embedded in article 253 of the constitution of India, which provides that though the Parliament has the power to make any law for implementing any treaty, agreement or convention with any other country or countries or any decision made at any international conference, association or other body, but no decision affecting the disposition of the State of J&K shall be made by the government of India without the consent of the government of the state.” to be elected with the power of giving such a consent.
That in the context of Security Council Resolutions, which as stated above, guarantee right of self-determination to the people of the State of J&K, no one has the power to neutralize the effect of Security Council resolutions or come up with any out of box solution.
In order to bring to an end, the sufferings and miseries of the people of Kashmir, it is high time for India and Pakistan to accede to the demand of right of self-determination of the people of Kashmir.
