No scope for talks yet: Mirwaiz
‘Dialogue, Killings Can’t Go Together’
Srinagar, Aug 7: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Saturday said New Delhi had failed to take Confidence Building Measures to build trust and pave way for resolution of the Kashmir dispute according to the aspirations of Kashmiris.
Reacting to the statement of Union Home Minister, P Chidhambaram, Mirwaiz said in order to build trust by taking the process forward and provide much needed relief to the people, the conglomerate had proposed to the Government of India certain necessary steps that needed to be taken immediately.
He said the steps included demilitarization, lifting the overwhelming security apparatus form Kashmir, revoking the various special ‘repressive’ laws including AFSPA, PSA etc., releasing all political prisoners languishing in various jails.
“But unfortunately no heed was paid, betraying India’s lack of sincerity and will, and in turn discrediting the whole process of engagement. Today in less than two months around 50 people mostly children and teenagers have been mercilessly killed and the killing spree continues and all forms of repression have been put in place by India. Where is the scope for engagement with India when a reign of terror has been let loose by them against a people for demanding their basic right?” Mirwaiz stated.
