NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Dec 18: A seven-member delegation of Hurriyat Conference (M), led by its chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, met Moulana Fazl-ur-Rehman and other members of Kashmir Committee at the Parliament House on Tuesday.
The marathon meeting that lasted around four hours was also attended by top officials of the Pakistan Foreign Ministry. During the closed-door meeting both sides discussed in detail the different dimensions of Indo-Pak dialogue process and its impact on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, sources said.
While reiterating his country’s stance on the issue, Moulana Fazl-ur-Rehman said that entire Pakistani nation was united on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. He assured the visiting delegates that the people of Pakistan won’t let down their Kashmiri brethren and would continue support to their legitimate cause.
The Committee members also acknowledged the Hurriyat’s view-point that all inclusive dialogue was essentially important to resolve Kashmir issue peacefully. They, however, observed that unity amongst the Kashmiri leadership was the need of the hour. “The members of the committee expressed concern over the human rights situation in Kashmir,” said a statement issued by the committee at the end of session.
Raza Rubbani, Jehangeer Badr, Dr Attiya Inayatullah, Mushahid Hussain Syed, Haji Muhammed Adeel, Muhammad Tariq Tarar, Malik Abrar Ahmed and Munir Orkzai were also present at the meeting.
Later, talking to Greater Kashmir, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that their meeting with Pakistani parliamentarians and senators was of great importance wherein serious and threadbare discussions were held regarding the issue of Kashmir. He said that Hurriyat stressed for all inclusive dialogue to settle the long pending Kashmir issue.
The visiting Hurriyat delegation also met cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, who is the head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
Khan said he believes that Kashmiri people have a bigger role to play in the settlement of Kashmir issue.
Ruling out military solution of Kashmir, Khan said it was high time that Kashmiri leadership be made part of the dialogue process to workout an amicable solution. Lauding the role of APHC, Khan said without the active participation of Kashmiris, talks process can’t yield desired results.
