Srinagar, May 17 (Only Kashmir): Without directly referring to Ramadan Ceasefire Hurriyat (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that no temporary initiative can prove fruitful unless steps are taken to address the basic dispute of Kashmir.
Adressing a seminar titled “Responsibility of Leadership in Safeguarding the Sanctity of Martyrdom” at Hurriyat Hqtrs Rajbagh Srinagar on Thursday Mirwaiz indirectly referring to Ramadan Ceasefire Hurriyat announced by the Government of India a day before said, no temporary initiative can prove fruitful unless steps are taken to address the basic dispute of Kashmir, adding, what next after this month? Will Government of India start killing people of Kashmir again?
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that Kashmir is not an issue of economic doles or privileges but a political and humanitarian issue and it is our consistent stand that this issue can be resolved either by implementation of UN Resolutions on Kashmir or through a sustained result oriented meaningful dialogue among India, Pakistan and the people of Kashmir and that military might can’t muzzle the genuine aspirations of people of Kashmir.
Mirwaiz said that the people of Kashmir are engaged in a struggle based on the internationally accepted principal of Right to Self Determination and in order to crush this genuine struggle of the people the repressive measures used by the government of India are faced and fought with complete determination and unity by the people of Kashmir which he said, will bear fruit.
Mirwaiz said the it is a fact people of Kashmir have rejected fear and have become resilient and Govt’s tactics of bullet and pellet, arresting people and leadership confining them in jails or houses, torture,use of NIA, repeated restrictions and curfews and harassment and intimidation and other measures of pushing the youth to the wall have proved a complete failure. In fact all these have boomeranged upon the perpetrators.
Mirwaiz said that besides resistance leadership every segment of society including lawyers, traders, students, businessmen, employees, and teachers have to share the responsibility to take the movement forward. (OK)
