Mirwaiz rejects Antony’s statement
Srinagar, Aug 14: Rejecting out-rightly the statement of Defence Minister A K Antony on Kashmir issue, the chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq termed it contrary to the reality, history, international pledges and agreements.
“On the one hand, New Delhi talks of solving all pending issues with Pakistan including the major dispute of Jammu and Kashmir while on the other, its representatives are issuing statements which are contrary to the reality, history, and international pledges and agreements,” said Mirwaiz while addressing a public meeting at Zinda Shah Masjid, Rainwari, here.
“Such irresponsible statements have not only potential to create tension between India and Pakistan, but it can also derail the ongoing talks between the two countries,” he said, “Jammu Kashmir, as it existed on 14 August 1947, was a disputed territory and its solution was still pending.
Meanwhile a delegation from Burma led by Hashim Yousuf called upon Mirwaiz at his Nigeen residence. Yousuf, according to Hurriyat statement, apprised Mirwaiz about the bone chilling accounts of the ongoing murderous assaults on Muslim children, elders, women, men and youth by the Burmese government and monks.
The delegation requested Mirwaiz to apprise Kashmiri Muslims about the plight of Buremese Muslims so as to collectively raise their voice against the ongoing human right crisis in Burma. The delegation said it was at least for Islamic world, United Nations and International Human Rights Organization to take strong notice of the issue.
Mirwaiz assured the delegation that brotherhood exists between the Muslims and he would take all the necessary steps within his sphere of influence to address the issue of grave human concern.
Apart from this, a four- member delegation of Jammu Kashmir Amity Council met Mirwiaz and presented their problems before him.
