India non-serious about Kashmir dispute

Aug 20th, 2014 | Category: Kashmir News

In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders and organizations have criticized India for calling off the foreign secretary-level talks with Pakistan saying that New Delhi is adopting a non-serious approach towards the Kashmir dispute.

The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a media interview in New Delhi said that the decision was devoid of political maturity and far-sightedness.

The veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani said that Jammu and Kashmir was an international issue, which had to be resolved as per aspirations of the Kashmiris. The decision, he added, had indicated that New Delhi had a confrontationist policy on the Kashmir issue.

Kashmiri leaders, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik and Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai in their statements and Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, while addressing party activists in Srinagar said that the cancellation of Pak-India dialogue would not augur well for the South Asian region.

Meanwhile, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism, martyred one more Kashmiri youth during violent military operation at Tangdhar in Kupwara. The authorities have once again imposed black law Public Safety Act on detained Hurriyet Conference leader, Mushtaq-ul-Islam and shifted him to sub jail, Baramulla.

On the other hand, Hurriyet leaders, Syed Ali Gilani and Shabbir Ahmad Shah held meetings in New Delhi with Abdul Basit, the Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India and apprised him about the latest situation in occupied Kashmir. They discussed with High Commissioner different aspects of the Kashmir dispute. After the meetings, the Hurriyet leaders said that Pakistan reassured its political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kashmir cause.

The forum patronized by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement denounced a protest by Hindu extremists in New Delhi against Syed Ali Gilani and other Hurriyet leaders for meeting Pakistan High Commissioner to India.

Ghulam Muhammad Safi, convener of the AJK chapter of Syed Ali Gilnai-led Hurriyet forum in a statement in Islamabad, today, welcomed the decision of Pakistani government to hold talks with Kashmiri Hurriyet leaders despite Indian objections. He said, the decision has given a loud and clear massage that Pakistan was not ready to hold negotiations with India at the cost of Kashmiris’ interests.

In a condolence meeting, held at the residence of APHC-AJK Convener, Syed Yousuf Naseem, in Rawalpindi solidarity was expressed with him over his mother’s death. The meeting was attended by Hurriyet leaders and a large number of Kashmirris from all walks of life.
