Mirwaiz urges India to create conducive atmosphere.

ISLAMABAD, May 25, 2010 (Balochistan Times): The All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has urged India to create conducive atmosphere to resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris aspirations. The APHC Chairman addressing a public gathering at Zoonimer in Srinagar, today, reacted sharply to the Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singhs assertion that India was ready to hold dialogue with all groups in Jammu and Kashmir provided they shun violence, Kashmir Media Service reported. The APHC Chairman said that India should withdraw its troops, release all political prisoners, repeal draconian laws and stop human rights violations in the occupied territory, if it was sincere to hold talks. He maintained that New Delhi must understand that Kashmir was a political issue, which could not be resolved through so-called economic or administrative packages. On the other hand, veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, who continued to remain under house arrest for the third successive day, today, talking to media men over phone said that the talks offer by the Indian Prime Minister was mere an eyewash aimed at hoodwinking the world community. He pointed out that Indian forces were involved in violence in the occupied territory and not the Kashmiris. The leaders of JKLF-R, Farooq Ahmed Dar and Javed Ahmed Mir in a joint statement in Srinagar said that the Kashmir dispute could only be resolved through tripartite talks involving Pakistan, India and genuine Kashmiri leadership.
