Prof Gani, Nayeem Khan, Azam Inquilabi served notice
Shah Asked To Refrain From Going Public On Issues
DISQUIET IN HURRIYAT (M)
Srinagar, May 31: After several weeks of disquiet in Hurriyat Conference (M) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the conglomerate Thursday initiated action against several of its senior leaders for “acts of indiscipline and violation of Hurriyat constitution.”
“In view of issuing irresponsible statements, of creating ruckus and violation of the Hurriyat constitution, it was decided that Prof Abdul Gani Bhat, Nayeem Ahmad Khan and Azam Inquilabi should be served a show-cause notice as to why action should not be initiated against them,” the top decision-making body of the conglomerate, Executive Council, presided over by Mirwaiz, said after at a meeting here. The senior leaders have been asked to explain their position within 10 days.
Besides, senior Hurriyat leader Shabir Ahmad Shah would be communicated through a letter to “refrain from making public his suggestions and issues pertaining to the Hurriyat.”
Sources said the meeting expressed concern over the situation which has arisen in the aftermath of Bhat’s remarks at Botengoo Sopore and Kulgam and ruckus which erupted at Hurriyat headquarters at Rajbagh here.
Mirwaiz told Greater Kashmir that action against Prof. Bhat followed his remarks that UN resolutions on Kashmir were irrelevant now. “It is against the constitution of Hurriyat,” Mirwaiz said.
“The meeting decided to initiate action against him (Nayeem Khan) for his remarks,” Mirwaiz said. During a seminar at the Hurriyat headquarters, Khan had questioned the silence of Mirwaiz over the statements of Prof. Bhat.
Sources said Inquilabi came under fire for his frequent statements ‘attacking everybody’ and for ‘running parallel Hurriyat Conference.’
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Mirwaiz said, “It (today’s decisions) is a message to each and everybody in the Hurriyat that there is no room for indiscipline and violation of the Hurriyat constitution.”
Mirwaiz said he made it clear during today’s meeting that Hurriyat constitution and system was above the individual opinions and nobody would be allowed to ‘violate or trespass it.’
Reacting to the development at the meeting, Shabir Shah said he left the meeting midway to express his displeasure for ‘Hurriyat going lenient against Prof. Bhat over his remarks.’
Before staging walkout, Shah said, he presented his point that Prof. Bhat should either apologize for his remarks or should be expelled from the conglomerate.
He is learnt to have told Mirwaiz that being the custodian of the Hurriyat and its constitution, he should take strong action against Prof. Bhat.
Asked to respond on action initiated against him, Shah said he had no knowledge about it. “I have no knowledge of the decision taken at the meeting,” Shah said.
Nayeem Khan said Hurriyat went public over the decisions taken at today’s meeting. “I will also make public my response to the outcome of the meeting,” he said.
Inquilabi termed action initiated against him “non-issue.”
“I will ensure that Hurriyat attains the position of prominence, that is possible only when all the resistance forces sit together for a serious discourse for the honorable settlement of Kashmir,” Inquilabi said.
A Hurriyat statement said, “The forum declared that it was imperative for the individuals to respect its constitution and views regarding the freedom struggle. The Chairman made it clear that Hurriyat constitution and system is above the individual opinions and nobody will be allowed to violate or trespass it.”
“The meeting observed it was the prime duty of every individual to respect the constitution. Anybody's individual or party opinion should never be taken as the stand or strategy of APHC,” the statement said.
The meeting was attending by Prof. Bhat, Shabir Shah, Aga Syed Hassan Almosvi Al Safvi, Masroor Abbas Ansari, Mukthar Ahmad Waza and Musadiq Adil. Bilal Gani Lone skipped the meet.
