Dialogue Has Become Inevitable: Mirwaiz

KL Report


Reiterating that Kashmir is directly affected by the escalation of tension along the LoC, APHC Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said that solution of Kashmir issue through dialogue between all the stake holders to the dispute has become inevitable.

Addressing a huge gathering at the shrine of Sheikh-ul-Alam (RA), Charar-e-Sharief, Mirwaiz said that tension on LOC apart from affecting Kashmiris, also had negative fallout on the relations between India and Pakistan.

He said justice and humanity demands that Kashmir issue should be solved according to the wishes and aspirations of Kashmiri people. Mirwaiz stressed that Kashmir issues remains pending disposal since 1947. He said no electoral process can change this basic reality, a statement issued to KNS said.

APHC Chairman said the elections in the world have been the vehicles of change, but in Kashmir they have been used to subvert the truth and impose stooges of the choice on the people. He said the APHC has repeatedly put forth the truth behind these elections before the world and now the revelations by the former Chief of Army Staff General VK Singh has substantiated Hurriyat’s true speak. He said former General has unmasked the name sake democratic process as he has aptly pointed out how the loyalty of so called main stream politicians was bought against monetary considerations from time to time.

Mirwaiz said in reality, these parties are representing Indian vested interest in Kashmir. Expressing concern over this phenomenon, he said that these parties and Governments framed by them were involved in bloodshed of Kashmiris and providing protection to Indian troops involved in ghastly abuse of human rights violations in Kashmir.

Hurriyat chairman made it once again clear that it is the imperative wish of the people of Kashmir that Kashmir dispute be solved through a meaningful and result oriented dialogue. He said in case India and Pakistan seriously pursue the talks to address Kashmir issue then APHC would extend its full support to the process.

APHC Chairman said that aspirations of people can’t be suppressed on gunpoint or through military might. He said that Afghanistan and Palestine are the prime examples in this regard where the stakeholders have finally taken course to talks to solve these issues, the statement issued to KNS reads.
