Islamabad: Pakistan`s former military ruler, Pervez Musharraf, has asked all stakeholders in the Kashmir issue to find a political solution to the decades-old problem that has bedevilled Indo-Pak relations.

Musharraf said all political forces of Pakistan should step forward to resolve the Kashmir issue. He made the remarks while speaking to a TV news channel.

The former president urged the Pakistan government to commence a dialogue process with India and other stakeholders to find a just solution to the issue.

The Pakistan government should inform the world community about alleged human rights violations committed by Indian security forces against innocent Kashmiris.

Musharraf claimed the Kashmir region is an integral part of Pakistan.

Appreciating the role played by the Pakistan Army in the war on terror, Musharraf said the force had been successful in defeating terrorists and providing relief in flood-affected areas at the same time.

In response to a question, he said the ruling Pakistan People`s Party-led government was elected through a democratic process and has the right to complete its five-year term.
