SRINAGAR, Dec 6: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today said the offer for talks over Kashmir issue would not yield any results if government's confrontational approach towards the separatist camp continues.
Addressing a Seerat Conference at Mirwaiz Manzil, Mirwaiz said the offers of dialogue are being made to the separatist leadership in Kashmir by the government of India. However on the other side the people as well as the Hurriyat leadership is harassed and confined in their homes. "You want us to participate in the dialogue process but how is this possible when people are being huddled in jails and harassed sometimes in the name of NIA raids and sometimes in the name of national security," Mirwaiz said.
The Hurriyat (M) chairman expressed deep concern over the pro-longed confinement of the octogenarian Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani- stating that he has not been able to offer congregational Friday prayers for years. "This is ironic that you are not even allowing us to follow our religious obligations and then you want us to talk to you. I want to affirm this time again that the pro-freedom leadership is not going to budge an inch from its stand due to the pressure tactics you create," Mirwaiz said.
The Hurriyat (M) chairman also claimed that various secret agencies are hell-bent to create a wedge between the Muslim community of Kashmir and divide it on sectarian grounds. "These agencies are striving to pit one Kashmiri Muslim against the other and the plans are going one for long. We have to understand that if we get divided on sectarian basis then it will be their biggest victory and our greatest ever loss," Mirwaiz said.
