Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has hailed the Norwegian Parliament’s recently conducted debate on Kashmir dispute saying “it has once again brought into focus the perils of this long standing dispute and its dangerous implications on international security and stability.”
In a statement Mirwaiz described Norwegian Parliament’s effort as timely and most welcome step as it has recognized the necessity of the resolution of Kashmir dispute which besides bringing bloodshed and enormous miseries on the people of Jammu and Kashmir is posing a continuous nuclear warfare threat in this part of the world. Mirwaiz further said that “the Norwegian Parliament’s debate has encouraged the suffering people of Jammu and Kashmir and has made us hopeful that our sacrifices are not ignored and the world is taking note of our plight and sacrifices for a just cause.”
He thanked the Norwegian Parliament, especially those members who took part in the debate and showed concern on the plight of Kashmirs. He has also appreciated the role of Kashmir Scandinavian council and it’s Executive Director Ali Shahnawaz Khan for espousing the Kashmir cause at International level especially in Scandinavian countries
It may be recalled here that the Norwegian Parliament has conducted an important debate for the second time in a year on the Kashmir dispute on 23 May 2013. Earlier the debate was held in 2010 and again in September, 2012 about the existence of unidentified mass graves in Kashmir.
