‘Conglomerate To Be Protected At Any Cost’
Srinagar, Sep 5: A delegation of Hurriyat Conference (M) is likely to visit Pakistan next month to discuss the current situation of Kashmir and other related issues with the leadership of the country.
According to reliable sources, during the Executive Council meet of Hurriyat (M) on Wednesday, chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq conveyed to his colleagues that they might have to travel to Pakistan next month although dates for the same have not been finalized yet.
Sources told Greater Kashmir that the feelers have been sent to Mirwaiz that their trip would mature in October.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, who was in New Delhi in February this year, had extended invitation to the Hurriyat (M), Hurriyat (G) and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front for discussions with the leaders of that country. The visit, according to sources, could not take place till date due to internal engagements of the leadership of Pakistan.
Later, in the first week of July this year, the visiting Pakistan Foreign Secretary, Jalil Abbas, also invited the separatist leadership to visit the country.
“He told us to give them a time-frame for our visit to Islamabad sometime in September or October. We are hopeful that the visit will come through,” Mirwaiz had said after meeting Abbas at Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.
Foreign Minister S M Krishna is slated to visit Pakistan for three days from September 7 to discuss bilateral issues.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today conducted an important meeting of Executive Council members at the Hurriyat headquarters here.
The meeting was attended by Prof Abdul Gani Bhat, Agha-Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi, Bilal Gani Lone, Masroor Abbas Ansari, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza and Musadiq Adil.
APHC Chairman stressed the members to assess and analyze the ongoing situation in the context of given political scenario. Apart from that, he said that Hurriyat should win the confidence of people by representing them through their political activities.
During the meeting, the members debated extensively on various party and political issues. They further stressed that Hurriyat as a forum will be protected at any cost and its political programmes would be taken forward by taking people into confidence.
While welcoming the proposed meeting of the Indo-Pak foreign ministers, the participants hoped that meeting should prove fruitful in connection with the solution of all pending issues between the two countries including the vexed dispute of Kashmir.
The meeting also resolved that the Indian foreign minister should shun its traditional political stand on Kashmir and visit Pakistan with an open mind on his upcoming visit to meet his counterpart. It would help in taking a step forward towards solution of issues.
The participants stressed that for lasting solution of Kashmir problem, it was important that genuine leadership of Kashmiris should be involved in any negotiation process between the two countries which is aimed to solve Kashmir issue. Hence, they said, instead of holding talks for peace only, the two countries should proceed toward solving the issues and include Kashmiris in talks to bring permanent peace and stability in south Asia.
