Srinagar, June 12: Pakistan High Commissioner to New Delhi Shahid Malik, who completed his five year diplomatic stint, Tuesday thanked the Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq for his “contribution towards addressing the Kashmir issue.”
Shahid Malik, according to a Hurriyat statement, telephoned Mirwaiz before leaving for Pakistan, thanking him for his efforts towards addressing the Kashmir issue.
“Malik told Mirwaiz that Pakistan would continue to lend political, moral and diplomatic support to the rightful struggle of Kashmiris. He said it is the part of Pakistan’s national policy to support Kashmiris till the dispute is resolved,” the Hurriyat statement said.
Mirwaiz complimented Malik for his strenuous diplomatic efforts on Kashmir issue. He also paid Khiraj-e-Tehseen for the high commissioner’s diplomatic contributions towards Kashmir issue.
Lauding Malik for “dutifully discharging his duties” over the period of five years as Pakistan High Commissioner, Mirwaiz said Kashmiris are highly thankful to him for his “courageous role towards solving the Kashmir issue.”
Describing Malik as a personality blessed with political acumen, the amalgam chairman said it was “highly appreciating the way he presented the Kashmir cause before India and International Community.”
Meanwhile, the Mirwaiz met various local and international delegations at his Nigeen residence here.
Prominent among them were the delegations led by the Pugwash International Secretary General, Paulo Cortazeno and Political Minister at Embassy of Japan in New Delhi, Takeshi Osuga, including second Secretary Affairs, RyotaroFujita.
During his brief meeting, Mirwaiz briefed the delegations about the present political situation in Kashmir. He discussed with them the “human rights violations, state sponsored oppression”, according to a Hurriyat statement.
He also talked about the internal, external and constant efforts led by APHC to solve the Kashmir issue according to the pending UN resolutions or through tripartite dialogue.
Hurriyat Chairman said since 1947 and particularly in 2008 and 2010, lakhs of Kashmiris have come on roads and peacefully protested to express their wishes and political aspirations. However, he said “Government of India and its agencies suppressed the peaceful movement by unleashing violence and killing people to inculcate fear.”
“2010 is glaring example of state sponsored violence to suppress the Kashmiris whereby forces killed 125 youth including students and innocent children by consciously targeting them,” Mirwaiz said.
