Hurriyat (JK) rejects dialogue process ‘without separatists’

KL Report


Hurriyat Conference (JK) Thursday passed a six point resolution rejecting any kind of dialogue process held without the participation of Kashmir’s separatist leadership.

At the end of a daylong Seminar organized on the eve of anniversaries of late Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and late Mohammd Afzal Guru, who were hanged in Tihar jail in 1984 and 2013 respectively, Hurriyat (JK) unanimously passed a resolution. The resolution was read by Hurriyat leader Nayeem Ahmad Khan.

“This august gathering resolves that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will never ever accept any dialogue process if it is held without the real representatives of the Kashmiri people (Separatists) to resolve the dispute,” the resolution said.

Demanding that Indo-Pak relation should not affect the Kashmir issue, the resolution said, “India and Pakistan are two sovereign countries and are free to strengthen their mutual relations but these should not in any way affect the historical and political aspects of the Kashmir dispute.”

The resolution also said that Hurriyat (JK) will only recognize political CBM’s about Kashmir. “Any confidence building measure (CBM) regarding Kashmir should be of political nature and no other CBM is acceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” said the resolution passed amidst slogans and cheers.

It added “India and Pakistan can further enhance their trade relations but the sacrifices rendered by Kashmiri people are not meant for the trade of Tomatoes and Potatoes.”

Hurriyat also stressed upon India to immediately handover the mortal remains of late Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and late Mohammad Afzal Guru to their kith and kin.

The resolution also demanded India to release all the prisoners of Jammu and Kashmir who were arrested since last twenty five years and are languishing in different state and Indian jails.
