Mirwaiz suspends Naqash
Hurriyat (M) restructuring?
Srinagar, Dec 22: Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Tuesday suspended the membership of Islamic Political Party from the conglomerate’s general council after its Chairman, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, openly ridiculed the Hurriyat leadership for participation in quiet dialogue with New Delhi.
Naqash had yesterday written an article in Kashmir Times in which he termed the recent developments in the Hurriyat (M) as ‘unhealthy.’ He said the Hurriyat’s participation in quiet dialogue was not known to anyone in the conglomerate except for a few leaders. Pointing at senior Hurriyat (M) leaders, Prof Abdul Gani Bhat and Bilal Gani Lone, he has said the duo has ‘controversial intents.’
Hurriyat insiders told Greater Kashmir that Mirwaiz today took a tough stand against Naqash and suspended him and his party from the conglomerate.
“Naqash has been suspended for an indefinite period but not yet expunged from the conglomerate. The decision was taken by the Mirwaiz himself without consulting anybody and further course of action against Naqash will also be decided by Mirwaiz himself,” insiders said.
They said the conglomerate has been facing internal bickering after quiet dialogue and the suspension was made to set an example for others to abstain from going against the leadership.
“This is the first time after dissolution of Hurriyat (M) structure last month that Mirwaiz has taken a tough stand against anyone who spoke against the party. It will serve as a lesson for others who have been frequently indulging in such activities,” they said.
