No alternative to efforts for resolution of dispute: Mirwaiz

Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday said that there is no alternative to efforts needed to resolve the Kashmir dispute “which is bleeding Kashmiris each day”.
Addressing the Friday congregation at Jamia Masjid, Mirwaiz condemned the latest civilian killings and asked how long will GOI refuse to accept that people of Kashmir “are not paid agents of some so-called instigators who are protesting at their behest, but are a nation of people who consciously and with conviction are engaged and offering huge sacrifices in decades-long struggle to achieve their basic political right of self-determination.”
Mirwaiz said that It was strange that while India considered its struggle against the British Rule as a freedom struggle and its leaders as freedom fighters, “it considers our freedom struggle as terrorism and our activists and freedom fighters as terrorists and subversives!”
He said the current young generation of Kashmiris “raised in the repressive and stifling environment of forcible control, are determined and making this demand in absolutely clear terms in every possible way and through all mediums available to them, despite being mercilessly killed, blinded, maimed curbed banned gagged and despite facing all forms of repression by the state.”
Mirwaiz said the resulting violence as a consequence of “unprecedented oppression” and delay in resolution of the dispute is leading to “killing of those as well who represent state institutions.”
Later as per Joint Resistance program Mirwaiz led a protest rally at Jamia Masjid.

    One cannot but reminisce when Gandhi started to fight for India’s independence, the first thing he did was to take off all his clothes except the loincloth. Why? Because the humblest of India’s citizens could only afford a loincloth. That is how he identified himself with the common citizen. He ate barely. You could study human anatomy just by looking at his frail body. And, the world looked and looked and wondered what was this frail man about.
    Now take a good, hard look at Kashmiri netas. Immediately, look at the picture that accompanies this news item. Look at how the neta has draped himself. Look at his full cheeks because there is nothing else open to be looked at. He, yes, is a neta fighting for the “common” Kashmiri. If the “common” Kashmiri drapes himself the same and is as well-fed as this neta, the outcome of his “cause” is a foregone conclusion. Does the neta represent them in any way? Can he honestly say that he suffers with the people he thinks he leads? No, to both questions. Do you still wonder why no one in India or abroad gives a hoot about his “cause”? Well, if you do, you really shouldn’t!
