Kashmiris Want Cooperation Not Confrontation Between Indo-Pak: Mirwaiz

KL Report


The Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday said that Kashmiris want cooperation not
confrontation between India and Pakistan.

According to a statement issued received by KNS, the Mirwaiz said the past seven decades of tension between the two nations have only led to worsening of situation and have not in any way proved helpful in solving the Kashmir issue.

The statement said that the Mirwaiz made these remarks in his Eid address at the historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar where thousands of people offered Eid prayers. It is to be noted that Hurriyat (M) Chairman was kept under house arrest and denied participation in Eid prayers for continuous Four Eids in the past two years.

While throwing light on Eid-ul-Adha and current political situation, the Hurriyat (M) Chairman said that the solution of Kashmir issue was pre-cursor to any improvement of relations between India and Pakistan.

Mirwaiz urged the government of India that if issues have to be resolved through result oriented and meaningful negotiations then it is imperative for the government of India to make  efforts to create a conducive atmosphere on  for any such process to move forward.
Stressing that bloodshed in Kashmir should stop, prisoners should be freed, and restrictions on freedom of opinion should be lifted, the Hurriyat (M) Chairman has told KNS that Kashmiri aspirations for freedom could not be suppressed on gunpoint or by force for too long.

Mirwaiz paid rich tributes to Kashmiri prisoners lodged in various jails in and outside Kashmir. He said that every Eid reminds us of the great sacrifices we have given in the past and the hardships we are facing at present, but we all stand committed to take the ongoing struggle towards its logical conclusion.
