Kashmir’s separatist camp Saturday took strong exception to the statement of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in which during his first Google + hangout, he had castigated pro-freedom camp accusing them of not knowing what they want for from GOI.
The Huriyat Conference (G) led by the senior separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani while giving a wide berth to the statement, remarked that Omar has not addressed them but has trained his guns at those who have held talks with New Delhi in the past.
The amalgam added that it from the day one is against the procedure of dialogue on Kashmir. It added that Huriyat (G) wants India to accept Kashmir a disputed territory and only after that dialogue for Kashmir resolution could be initiated.
The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) led by Mohammad Yasin Malik when contacted reserved the comments over the issue. The front spokesman, however, told KNS that Malik and several others were assaulted and arrested in injured condition while going towards Baramullah to address poll boycott rally. “We cannot comment over Omar’s statement at present- we will do so once the chairman is released.”
Huriyat Conference (M) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while passing the buck to GOI, accused that it never showed any seriousness in resolving Kashmir on table. The amalgam further reiterated that eight years earlier it provided New Delhi the road map for the Kashmir solution but nothing was done on ground.
“As far as the agenda of the Huriyat Conference is concerned- it is clear that we represent the aspiration of the people of Kashmir and stress that Kashmir can either b resolved through the implementation of UN resolutions or the tri-partite dialogue,” Huriyat (M) spokesman told KNS.
The newly formed amalgam Huriyat JK while castigating Omar over what it called anti-people policies said that Omar could not even revoke AFSPA from a single area of Kashmir, he must not talk about other issues related to Kashmir resolution.
Pertinently, Omar had stated the separatists were asked to come forward with what they expect from the talks something that was achievable but according to Omar they never did
“If the part of the responsibility is of government of India, a part of it lies with Hurriyat that they don’t know what they want to talk about,” he added.
