Hurriyat Conference (M) restructuring on: Mirwaiz
Urges Youth To Become Self Reliant
Bandipora, May 4: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, on Friday said that efforts are on to restructure the amalgam at various levels.
“We are restructuring the conglomerate at various levels to discuss different issues like economics, politics, and media “Mirwaiz told reporters at the sidelines of a public gathering here in north Kashmir.
Referring to Kashmir issue, Mirwaiz said, “We want India and Pakistan to hold meaningful dialogue over Kashmir rather than holding talks on secondary issues like trade, Siachen and Sir Creek. First they need to resolve the core issue,” he said. “We are ready to cooperate with India and Pakistan but we want to make it clear that Hurriyat won’t accept any readymade solution.”
Addressing the gathering earlier Mirwaiz castigated New Delhi for what he called “double speak”. “On one hand India says that it is trying to solve the issue politically but on the other its army is consolidating its position in the state. New Delhi should bear it in mind Army and weaponry will not change the destiny of our struggle. It will not deter our aspirations or change them,” he said.
Mirwaiz said the demilitarization was necessary for any process to start. “India has to demilitarize JK and revoke all black laws for talks to succeed,” he added.
“Our movement was peaceful from 1947 till 1990. It turned aggressive due to the wrong policies of New Delhi” he said. “Not only the people of Kashmir but the UN General Secretary has also said that Kashmir issue should be resolved as per the aspiration of Kashmiris.”
Referring to 2008, 2009 and 2010 agitations, Mirwaiz said that the Kashmiris have always fought for their rights in peaceful ways and means. “Our youngsters were fighting for their rights and bright future with empty hands and forces showered bullets on them.”
Mirwaiz said it was regrettable that the “so called democratic state” is yet to take any action against the persons involved in the killing of 122 youth.
Mirwaiz urged Kashmiri youth to adopt the agriculture, business, trade and handicrafts to become self sufficient and self reliant. “Economic freedom is as important as the political freedom. We have to become self-sufficient. I urge youth to come forward and try to work towards making Kashmir self reliant. We remaining economically handicapped benefits New Delhi as people sitting there know it very well that poor Kashmir poses no threat.”
He alleged that resources of Kashmiris were being exploited by New Delhi.
“We will not allow anybody to misuse our resources.”
