Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Sunday said India's bid to blame Pakistan for the "current revolt" in the Kashmir Valley warranted no response.
Mirwaiz told IANS here that the two-day visit by the Home Minister that ended on Sunday and "his comments are insignificant".
He said New Delhi's "propaganda" on the Kashmir issue that the "current revolt" was sponsored by Pakistan "is so worn out and half-witted that it does not even warrant a response".
He said the separatist leadership – including Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Yasin Malik – believed that the "Kashmiri struggle for freedom like all freedom struggles in the world is both indigenous and sacred".
The Mirwaiz said the separatist leadership "condemns the killing spree" by forces, injuring thousands and blinding more than 150.
He said it was a blot on the face of humanity that a country "which executes such barbarism prides itself as the world's largest democracy".
