Govt Raking up Petty Issues to Shield K-Dispute: Mirwaiz



Hurriyat (m) chairperson, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday said that efforts on part of the government are underway to take away the attention of the people of Kashmir from the main issue of Kashmir and digress into raking up unnecessary controversies from time to time

According to a statement issued to KNS, addressing a massive gathering of people at Friday congregation prayers at Kashmir’s main Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, Mirwaiz said, “massive military presence and draconian laws cannot deter the people for continuing their just struggle for the basic right of self determination even though political space in Kashmir is being choked  and day in and day out resistance leaders are being arrested and detained our struggle against oppression and suppression will continue .”

Terming both the ruling and opposition political parties in the Jammu Kashmir Assembly as “birds of the same feather”, he said, “it is ironical that on the issue of beef these parties were making a hue and cry for their petty political gains but the same parties never bother to talk about continuous human rights violations, revocation of Draconian and Black laws like AFSPA, demilitarization or about the real aspirations of the people of Kashmir in the so called Assembly.”

He said, “New Delhi cannot for long keep the Kashmir issue off the international radar and suggested that a meaningful dialogue with India, Pakistan and Kashmiris as the main party to the issue was a necessity for arriving at a lasting resolution to the long-pending Kashmir issue.”
