New dispensation in New Delhi has to address the Kashmir issue: Mirwaiz

Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Sunday said that the new political dispensation in India has to engage with the realities of Kashmir, its people and address the issue.

Addressing a seminar at All Parties Hurriyat (M) Conference headquarters in Rajbagh, Mirwaiz said that Hurriyat is ready to support all Indo-Pak efforts aimed at ending hostility and seeking a peaceful solution to Kashmir issue.

“Kashmir issue is a reality and the new dispensation in India has to engage with the reality of the Kashmir issue and address it,” Mirwaiz said.

Mirwaiz said that it was unfortunate that New Delhi has choked all means of peaceful protests, seminars and even pro freedom leaders aren’t allowed to meet people.

“We are not against the people of India but against the Indian policies,” Mirwaiz said.
