Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) General Secretary, Dr Yousuf-Bin-Ahmed Al-Othaimeen Wednesday invited Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to the 44th session of OIC Foreign Ministers conference, slated to be held at Cote-D’lvore, Abidjan, on Jul 10, 11.
Hurriyat Conference (M) has expressed hope that the OIC will take serious note of the unabated human rights violations and the killing of innocent Kashmiris at the hands of Indian forces and OIC will play a role in getting this stopped forthwith, a statement issued here said.
APHC hopes that OIC will lay special focus on the resolution of Kashmir dispute as well which is lingering since past several decades, and work towards its final resolution as per the wishes and aspirations of its people, it added.
The spokesman said that since past five years, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz has been denied travel documents thereby barring him from traveling outside the State and attending conferences including those organised by the OIC.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has welcomed the recent speech on Eid-ul-Fitr of the patron of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatullah Syed Ali Khamenai and the subsequent order to Iran’s judiciary to follow and support Kashmir cause.
Mirwaiz said that this statement has raised the morale of Kashmiri people and we hope that other countries who believe in justice and fairness will follow suit and support the just struggle of the people of Jammu and Kashmir for their right to self determination.
While thanking Ayatollah Khamnai for his unequivocal support to the Kashmir cause Mirwaiz said that the people of Kashmir hope that the order given to Iran’s judiciary by Ayatollah Khamnai will be duly reflected in the foreign policy of the Iranian Government vis-à-vis the Kashmir dispute.
Meanwhile, spokesman strongly condemned the imposition of curfew in downtown yet again. The statement said that government is deliberately imposing curbs in downtown on regular basis so that that economy of that area is crushed.
He said that people of downtown are being regularly punished for the continuous affiliation with the on-going freedom movement which is ‘a worst form of state terrorism and highly condemnable’.
