Mehbooba Mufti, Hurriyat Conference for Indo-Pak talks


Srinagar, Mar 19 (Only Kashmir): Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq led Hurriyat Conference on Monday appealed the two neighboring countries India and Pakistan to start a result-oriented dialogue process to stop the ongoing ‘bloodshed’ in Kashmir particularly due to the escalation on the borders.
Addressing the people at Bimber Gali (Mendhar, Poonch), after visiting the family which lost five of its members in cross LoC shelling, the Chief Minister made a passionate appeal for dialogue and reconciliation to get the State out of bloodbath and continued exchange of fire on the borders.

She appealed Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to take lead in getting Jammu & Kashmir out of this bloodbath and help these people in leading peaceful and normal life. She also appealed the leadership of Pakistan to see the logic of peaceful engagement and dialogue with India as wars in the past have yielded nothing except devastation, death and destruction.
Meanwhile during a meeting of executive and general council members of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq led Hurriyat Conference, the amalgam expressed serious concern over the growing escalation between India and Pakistan on the borders and stressed upon the two nations to shun the confrontational approach and instead start a sustained dialogue to resolve the root cause of the tension which is the Kashmir dispute.
The meeting urged the leadership of both, India and Pakistan to mitigate the sufferings of people of Kashmir and put an end to this senseless violence by showing maturity and pragmatism and take steps to resolve the Kashmir issue as per the wishes and aspirations of people of Kashmir by pursuing a sustained and meaningful dialogue with all the stakeholders on board so that peace prevails in the South Asia.
