Srinagar, Dec 9: The Hurriyat Conference termed as "jugglery of words" Home Minister P Chidambaram's statement about resolution of the Kashmir issue.
"This is nothing but just jugglery of words. It was Chidambaram who said Kashmir issue was about broken promises," Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani told PTI.
Geelani said the Kashmir issue can be resolved if New Delhi gives up its "rigid and unrealistic" stand.
"The simplest way to resolve the issue is to grant right to self determination to the people as per the United Nations Security Council resolutions," he claimed.
Moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq said before talking about the contours of the solution to the Kashmir issue, the focus should be on the contours of the engagement on it.
"The engagement has to be with the majority sentiment in Kashmir. New Delhi will have to engage with the discourse on right to self-determination and Azadi in Kashmir," he said.
Mirwaiz alleged that the Centre had committed mistakes in the past by ignoring the sentiments in Kashmir.
He said any lasting solution to the Kashmir issue can emerge only if all the stakeholders — India, Pakistan and Kashmiris–engage in a meaningful dialogue.
