Peace Can Be Achieved Only Through Kashmir: Mirwaiz Umer Farooq

Srinagar: APHC Chairman Dr Mirwaiz Mohammad Umer Farooq yesterday Visited the Home Of Senior APHC Leader Chairman Jklf Javaid Ahmad Mir To Inquire His Health Status. Other Leaders Including Adv Shahidul Islam, Mushtaq Ahmad Sofi And Tariq Buch. Javaid Ahmad Mir Was Injured Last Friday At Press Enclave During A Peaceful Demonstration.

Describing the restoration of normal relationship between Pakistan and India beyond the realm of possibility, the Chairman APHC Mirwaiz Dr Molvi Muhammad Umar Farooq has said that the growing uncertainty in the security scenario of J&K, increase in human right violations and ever increasing tension on the boarders point in the direction that the road to the normalization of relationship and prosperity of the subcontinent passes through Kashmir.

While addressing a Friday congregation at historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar, Mirwaiz said that the current fragile situation at the boarders between India and Pakistan make it amply clear that the sensitivity of Kashmir issue can’t be ignored any further.

Expressing his deep concern over the loss of life and property of the people on both sides of LOC and their migration to safer places due to continuous shelling and firing on the border, Mirwaiz said that change in the ruling regimes was not going to making difference on the ground, because Kashmir was not an issue of government formation but was about the shaping of destiny and without giving the people of Kashmir their due right the issue was not going to be resolved.

Paying tributes to Talib Ahmad Shah, who was recently martyred at Pulwama, Mirwaiz said that suppressing the aspirations by use of brutal force and thus pushing the youth of Kashmir to the wall, inspires the educated youth to jump in the armed struggle. Talib Ahmad Shah, who had a Masters degree, is a glaring example of the fact that how a young person got compelled to take gun, by the daily harassment of the Police.

Mirwaiz said that 68 years have passed, however, people of Kashmir could not be made to give in by the use of suppression and coercion. He said that it would be better for the leadership of India to realize that the attempts of ever increasing suppression end up in creating more resistance. Mirwaiz asserted that the people’s movement in Kashmir was not for concessions but Kashmir was a political and humanitarian issue which could be resolved through political means only, however the leadership of India had adopted a stubborn attitude, he added. Hailing the commitment of the youth who were giving their lives for a legitimate struggle, Mirwaiz said that the struggle will continue till it reaches its goal.

In the meanwhile Mirwaiz today visited the residence of prominent Hurriyat leader Javaid Ahmad Mir to inquire about his health. Mir was injured few days ago in a police action on a protest march in Srinagar. Mirwaiz was accompanied by Media Advisor APHC Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam and Youth AAC president Mushtaq Ahmad Sofi.

A team from Human Rights Division of Hurriyat, on the directions of Mirwaiz, visited Manasbal to express condolence and sympathy with the families of two young children who were killed in an explosion of some explosive matter there.

Meanwhile Hurriyat leaders GN Waseem and GN War today visited Adoora village of Langate and while addressing a public gathering there paid rich tributes to the recently martyred youth of the village. (GNS)
