All parties meet nothing but farce: Mirwaiz
SRINAGAR, May 9: The Hurriyat Conference ( M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today said that the all-pro India parties meeting convened by Mehbooba Mufti is nothing more than a farce to mislead people into believing that they are serious or can do something to bring people out of the current oppressive state.

In a statement, Mirwaiz said that the fact remains that it are these very parties and people who are responsible for “our misery and massacres and the extreme repressive situation that we are facing for the past seventy years in general and thirty years in particular.”

“Our suffering is an outcome of the draconian laws and legislation put in place here by New Delhi with the full cooperation and support of these mainstream parties. Over the years these parties kept yielding our sovereignty and compromising on our status before New Delhi for the sake of chair. And these parties who willingly preside over that repression for the sake of chair that has no power as all power rests with New Delhi, want us to believe that their meetings will bring us relief,” he said.

Mirwaiz said when all space for the expression of dissent is choked and gagged, as in Kashmir, youth feel forced to turn to violent means.

“When these young boys are killed by the forces and police as in Shopian their bosses condone and congratulate the forces. And when young civilians are killed, there is silence, not even an FIR is filed anywhere for killing of seven innocent youth which includes the one who was mowed to death by an armoured vehicle,” he added.

Mirwaiz questioned as to who is responsible and accountable for spilling of their blood? He said if these parties are really serious and mean business then all the black laws should be revoked forthwith and the security personnel responsible for the massacre of innocent youth should be brought to justice.

Mirwaiz said the situation in Kashmir is so fragile and worrisome that in just two months forces have killed 32 civilians mostly youth while scores have been blinded and maimed by the deadly pellets and pava shells.
