Killings,talks can’t go together: Mirwaiz
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 27: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said talks on Kashmir issue between India and Pakistan would continue to remain inconclusive without Kashmiris’ participation.
“On the one hand, two countries are talking about the solution of Kashmir issue, on the other, the killing of Kashmiris is still going unabated,” said Mirwaiz who is under house arrest for the past two days. He made it clear that violence and talks could not go together. He said restoration of friendly relations between India and Pakistan completely hinged on resolution of Kashmir issue.
Mirwaiz, according to Hurriyat statement, said; “If New Delhi is serious to resolve the Kashmir issue, it should shun the policy of double-standards and take some extraordinary steps to address it.” He said amalgam had already put forward suggestions in this regard.
Mirwaiz said the way state government overlooked the religious sensibilities of people and laid curbs to prevent them from performing their religious duties was highly condemnable.
Meanwhile, following the instruction of Mirwaiz, the Hurriyat leaders including Aga Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi, Abbas Ansari, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza¸ Hakim Abdul Rashid, Shabir Andrabi, addressed the gatherings in various parts of the valley to protest the Bandipora killing and continued blazes in shrines.
The leaders denounced the killing of a youth in Bandipora and expressed concern over the shrine fires in Kashmir.
Meanwhile, Imam Hai, Jamia Masjid, condemned the curbs on Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s religious and political activities, terming these as interference in the religious affairs of people.
