Chairman Huriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday said that his amalgam will present a detailed ‘road map’ on Kashmir resolution on June 20 at Srinagar.
Mirwaiz while delivering Friday sermon at Kashmir’s grand mosque stated that his faction of Huriyat will present a detailed road map of Kashmir resolution and also a policy statement about the stand of his amalgam will be presented before the masses on June 20 at Municipal park of Srinagar. Huriyat (M) already had announced a mega rally on June 20 over the completion of 50 years of Awami Action Committee (AAC). A party established by Huriyat chief’s father during the agitation of Moi-e-Muqadas in 1964.
Mirwaiz while demanding the restoration of pre-1947 status of Jammu and Kashmir stated that all the region of both the sides of the divided line are disputed and need to be resolved in accordance to the wishes and aspirations of the people of the region. “I want to clear that all the five regions of Jammu and Kashmir including Azad Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan, Ladakh and Jammu region are as much disputed in nature as is the Kashmir valley.”
The Huriyat (M) chief further cautioned that Jammu and Kashmir is being polarized on religious and ethical line and that the same must be opposed with the scorn it merits. “On Religious, ethical and linguistic grounds, the state is being divided by the communal forces. We will not allow this to happen. We will oppose every such move that is aimed to change the dimensions of Kashmir dispute. We want to have the region that existed on August 14, 1947.”
Kashmir’s chief religious cleric maintained that the people here are striving for their birth right and the ongoing resistance is not against any country or its people. “The Kashmir dispute must be looked on the humanitarian ground.” Mirwaiz remarked that the Jammu region will not be allowed to get polarized by the vested interests as the same is the very vital part of the ‘disputed’ territory. “We have seen that how communal fires were fanned in Jammu and history bears witness that how hatred was developed against one particular community in the region and how massacre was carried out after the partition. I want to ask those divisive forces that are they hell bent upon taking the state on the brink of communal tension. Jammu and Kashmir is the one entity and when we say so, we also talk about the areas that are on the other side of the divided line. We cannot ignore even a single area of disputed Jammu and Kashmir.”
Maintaining that terminology cannot change the reality of the dispute, Mirwaiz rebuked the comments of BJP wherein it was demanded that word Jammu be added to the Kashmir that is under the control of Pakistan. “These games of words cannot change the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir. It is the reality and can neither be undermined nor denied.”
