Seeking resolution of Kashmir no crime: Mirwaiz

Srinagar, Mar 29 : Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir and Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Muhammad Umar Farooq on Friday said asking for resolution of Kashmir issue is neither terror nor crime. He said Government of India should not criminalize our political aspirations which are rooted in history and principle of justice.

Addressing people during Friday congregation prayers at the Jamia Masjid, Mirwaiz said Hurriyat Conference has always taken a realistic and principled stand and advocated dialogue among stakeholders as a means to finding an acceptable solution for all parties involved in the dispute and for friendship between India and Pakistan.

He said that his late father AAC founder ‘Shaheed-e-Millat’ Mirwaiz Farooq was a great advocate of good relationship between India and Pakistan and peace for the region.

In fact, it was he who for the first time put forth the proposal for tripartite dialogue among the three stakeholders at the historic Gol Bagh rally in 1975, Mirwaiz, according to a statement issued, said.

“When we welcomed and participated in the talks with New Delhi and Islamabad we demonstrated our eagerness and faith in it as a means for resolution of the issue understanding fully well that people of Kashmir are the most affected party in issue. We have and will continue to advocate and push for dialogue as it is the way forward as Kashmiris are most at receiving end of the lingering dispute and almost every day are getting killed in one form or other,” he said.

Giving details of the programme in connection with Mehraj-Ul-Alam (SAW), Mirwaiz said that in keeping with tradition, he will delivering sermon on significance of Mehraj Ul Alam (SAW) at Aali Masjid on April 3 from Maghrib prayers onwards and a Majlis-e-Tauba Isteghfar will be held at Jamia Masjid Srinagar on Friday, April 5.
