Srinagar: Senior Hurriyat Conference leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said on Sunday that the Kashmir Student Conference held by Muslim Rashtriya Manch, sister organisation of the RSS, in New Delhi was an attempt by ‘agents of occupation’ to undermine and subvert people’s will. The agents were co-opting Kashmiris into the discourse of so-called “peace and development” through such attempts, Farooq said according to a statement.
Mirwaiz said that what Kashmiris need is redressal of their political will, not the doublespeak of these agents.
He said such underhand ploys for shifting focus from the actual issue were also aimed at a creating a wedge among Kashmiris along sectarian lines. Mirwaiz said that at this point people need to be extremely cautious and vigilant of these ploys. He said deceptive efforts will repeatedly be made to lure people by such forces.
Mirwaiz made these statements while delivering a sermon at an impressive gathering at the shrine of Syed Abdul Qadir Jeelani (RA) at Khanyar area of Srinagar.
