MeA chief calls for unity among Hurriyat leaders
Time To Start Process Of Mutual Consultation: Inqilabi
Srinagar, July 10: Chief Patron Jammu Kashmir Mahaz-e-Azadi (MeA) Muhammad Azam Inqilabi Tuesday paid tributes to martyrs of Kashmir.
In a statement, Inqilabi appealed senior resistance leaders to start the process of mutual consultation and understanding to avoid any conflict in the movement.
Delving into the 90’s, he said on May 21, 1990 Mirwaiz Muhammad Farooq was assassinated. “All intellectuals of Kashmir gave a metaphysical verdict to have Mirwaiz Umar Farooq as Imam of Jamia Masjid Srinagar,” he said. “Similarly resistance leaders who have spent their life in jails decided to have him (Mirwaiz Umar) as chairman of Hurriyat Conference in 1993.”
However, Inquilabi said, the forum split into two in 2003 due to lack of shora system (consultative council),” he added.
MeA patron said “anti-movement elements” tried to create an atmosphere of confrontation between Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. “But resistance leaders neutralized the situation.”
However Hurriyat executive member Prof. Abdul Gani Bhat on May 6, 2012 in a rally made UN resolutions a dispute and talked of forging an alliance with pro-India parties, Inqilabi said.
“Silence of Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar encouraged him. He continued with this in many other public meetings,” he added.
He said almost every pro-freedom leader condemned the statement of Prof. Bhat and writers expressed their views in newspapers on the issue. “Instead of discussing this issue in Hurriyat general council; show cause notices were served to Shabir Shah, Nayeem Khan and to me. I found it a disgrace to my pro-freedom sentiment and severed my ties with Hurriyat (M),” Inqilabi said.
He said Shabir Shah and Nayeem Khan discussed the issue of serving notices in a Hurriyat meeting on June 21 and demanded expulsion of Prof. Bhat or an apology from him to the people. “They also sought formation of consultative council.”
MeA patron said on June 25 Dastgeer Sahab shrine was gutted and Shabir Shah and his colleagues were attacked by a bunch of hooligans and “traitors” at Khanyar. “Mirwaiz Umar didn’t feel the need to visit Shabir Shah’s residence to express solidarity with him and to counter negative impacts of this incident. As a result Shabir Shah didn’t attend the Delhi meet of Hurriyat executive council,” the press statement read.
Inqilabi said Hurriyat (M) executive council members met the visiting Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani. “We were waiting that the Hurriyat leaders will tell the nation about the things discussed in the meeting.”
MeA patron said under these circumstances Mirwaiz Umar should take immediate steps for restructuring of Hurriyat Conference.
MeA patron said that self-determination day will be observed on August 13. “On that day rallies and processions will be carried out and an exemplary strike on both sides of ceasefire will be observed,” he said
