#Day47: In Any Talks on Kashmir, Pakistan Must, says Mirwaiz



All Parties Hurriyat Conference senior leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday said any proposed talks on Jammu and Kashmir should involve all stakeholders including Pakistan.

Terming the mass uprising in the Kashmir Valley a “political problem” which requires a “political solution”, the Mirwaiz told CNN News18 that all stakeholders, including Pakistan, should be included in any proposed talks over the Kashmir issue.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is on a two-day visit to Kashmir to interact with political leaders and people in “a bid to restore normalcy in the valley”.

Mirwaiz, who is leader of Hurriyat Conference (m), said Indian authorities had got into the habit of blaming resistance leadership for any trouble in the valley.

“It’s always pro-freedom leadership, Pakistan or traitors who are blamed (for problems in the valley) and never the Indian establishment,” he said.

At least 69 civilians have been killed by forces since the July 8 killing of popular Hizbul commander leader Burhan Wani.
