Terming proposed Pakistan visit an important step for the resolution of Kashmir issue, Chairman Hurriyat (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said it is not going to be a mere event. Dialogue is important for resolving the issue, he said.
Ahead of their planned Pakistan visit on December 17, moderates on Saturday held consultations with representatives of various minority groups at its Rajbagh office. Representatives of minorities while extending its support to the proposed visit said that Kashmir is political issue and Hurriyat should represent them during its visit.
Local news gathering agency KNS without mentioning any of the minority representatives who attended the meeting said they termed Kashmir a political and not religious issue. They even mandated Hurriyat to represent them, the report said.
During his address, Mirwaiz said that the process of consultation should not be confined to a particular group or community but it has to be extended to the minority as well. He assured the representatives of Hindus that he would advocate his demands before the Pakistani leadership.
Meanwhile terming the ‘opponents’ of proposed visit of Pakistan as ‘protectors of darkness’, Prof Abdul Gani Bhat said that “no one could stop them to visit Pakistan.” Without naming Syed ali Shah Geelani, he said “You have the best knowledge among all that what we are going to reap from this visit”.
KNS referred to its sources saying that resistance leader said that political situation at international level doesn’t support violence. “Lizards are enemies of light. However, those who know benefits and advantages of light have decided to visit Pakistan”, said Bhat. “Pakistan visit is not a picnic where we’ll hold lunch and dinner but it is an initiation toward to the resolution of Kashmir issue and we’re going with an agenda there.”
