He further added, the main cause of the Kashmir issue is “intellectual failure” and that “the provisions in the Article 370 of the Constitution was not a hurdle in the solution of the Kashmir issue”.

Sareen also said that “Political establishments and experts say there should be political solution to the Kashmir issue but what specific and exact political solution should be there, has not been elaborated”.

The problem could be solved if the citizens of Kashmir start recognising themselves as Indian citizens, Sareen said.

Sareen advised that “It should be made mandatory that children of government employees, officers and elected public representatives from the level of Panchayat to Parliament will get education in government schools”.
