Mirwaiz: War mongers pushing region to brink of disaster
SRINAGAR—While terming the situation in the sub continent as very grave and dangerous, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said war mongers are openly advocating for war and confrontation in the region and such aggressive attitude will only take the whole region to the brink of disaster.
Mirwaiz was addressing a very large gathering of devotees at historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar who had assembled there to participate in the congregation of Juma-tul-Vida which was observed as Youm-e-Quds as per the joint programme of resistance leadership.
“How ironical it was that those who call themselves as the champions of world’s largest democracy are talking of war as the resolution of the Kashmir issue and we, who advocate dialogue and deliberations among all stakeholders for its resolution in order to usher peace prosperity and stability in the region are labeled as traitors and terrorists,” said Mirwaiz.
He said the space for the leadership as well as the masses for raising the voice for right to self determination and expressing resentment and resistance against human right violations and anti Kashmir polices is being more and more squeezed by the Indian authorities and their local collaborators.
“I would like to remind them of a basic natural law that there is equal and opposite reaction to every action so the more you push us the more we may resent back, the more you oppress us the more resistance would be there and history of the freedom struggles around the world bear witness to this fact,” he said.
“In Kashmir it is the same. Each day as more and more young and educated youth are being forced to choose violent means of resistance, more and more people are joining funeral processions of the militant Martyrs eulogizing them, and not fearing retaliation by the forces, more and more boys are found pelting stones at the slightest provocation to express resentment and dislike.”
How long can they hold on this “peace” pretext to practice oppression and muzzle the voice of people and leadership” asked Mirwaiz.—GK
