UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Srinagar, Nov 22: Canadian diplomats called on the chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq here on Monday.
The 2-member team comprising July G. Bentley head of political affairs and Sumitra Dave, economic and political advisor of Canadian High Commission arrived at Mirwaiz’s Nageen residence this afternoon and discussed the present Kashmir situation.
Mirwaiz told them that peace would continue to elude the region until Kashmir issue is resolved in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of Kashmiris
“Pakistan, Afghanistan and Kashmir are linked and peace cannot prevail in this region until Kashmir issue is resolved. Not only Afghanistan, the world should realize the essence of resolving Kashmir dispute for the stability of the region,” Mirwaiz, flanked by senior executive council members of the conglomerate, told the 2-member team.
Mirwaiz told them that western world should facilitate the resolution of the Kashmir issue owing to trust deficit between India and Pakistan. “Both countries have failed to resolve the issue bilaterally,” Mirwaiz added.
“Our movement has passed through different phases since 1947. It has seen many crests and troughs but till date Kashmiris have not given up,” he added.
Mirwaiz who had been continuously stopped from offering congregational Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid also informed the diplomats that government has snatched political as well as the religious rights of the people.
Mirwaiz expressed dismay over western countries not taking cognizance of human rights violations taking place in the valley.
The diplomats informed Mirwaiz that they were monitoring Kashmir situation and were regularly briefing Ottawa, about the happenings here.
