‘Will react only after due deliberations’

SRINAGAR, Jun 8: Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, chairman Hurriyat Conference (M), today said the separatist leadership is in no hurry to respond to Delhi’s assertions over dialogue.
Addressing the people at Jamia Masjid here he said the separatist leadership will discuss the matter in the coming days and after due deliberations respond to the situation.
“I ask those who give us sermons on peace and development that which people in the world would not want development or best of institutions for their children best of progress of growth for themselves? The youth of Kashmir are no different they too would want the same but unlike their counterparts in the region , they live in a conflict zone which by virtue of being in a conflict has been turned into the world’s most militarized zone! Our children have inherited this conflict situation. They are baptized by repression by suppression that they witness all around them in their everyday life,” he said.
Mirwaiz said if the situation changes for the people their circumstances will automatically change. “If government of India really cares for our children and young as it claims, it is welcome as it is a human gesture. We also want our children to be nurtured and believe that it’s possible once they are brought out of the uncertainty that surrounds them. It entails resolution of Kashmir dispute above their stated position and looking at Jammu and Kashmir in the wider context of humanity and justice,” he added.
Mirwaiz said that as the flip-flop continues, “what we are observing is not so much a change of heart of the rulers but rather a change of strategy forced upon them by the change in circumstances.” Mirwaiz said that the policy of extreme repression was pursued as a state policy since BJP came to power in New Delhi four years ago which was a complete departure from the way previous BJP regime led by Vajpayee.
“An all out assault was launched on people in all fronts militarily legally economically or though plans of demographic change. Article 370 ,35 A challenged in Indian courts, GST implemented in defiance of special status and laws of the state pushing of SARFESAI act ,separate settlements for certain communities along Israeli pattern of settlements ,viscous and negative propaganda on Kashmir to cripple economy by dissuading outsiders to come here was part of plan. Regular arrest and detention of leadership and the NIA harassment and witch hunt," Hurriyat (M) chairman said.
He added that on the military front an all out offensive was launched by the name of operation all out in which hundreds of civilians were also killed besides killing armed youth." It was actually operation “wipe out” of Kashmiri’s as men women young or old were not spared. Even lactating mothers were killed. On LoC more belligerences was adopted escalating the situation,” Mirwaiz said.
Hurriyat (M) chairman stated that “we are happy that for whatever reason, if good sense has prevailed upon government of India and they have realized the futility of using force on people in this David versus Goliath battle of justice versus occupation and principles versus opportunism”. Mirwaiz said that the credit for any effort on part of Delhi if it really means to resolve the dispute, only goes to the perseverance of the people of Kashmir especially the youth.
