Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairperson Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Sunday lashed out at the Government of India for walking away from the peace dialogue offered by the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Speaking at a seminar organised by the Hurriyat (G) here on Sunday, Mirwaiz said that it is unfortunate that New Delhi has shunned another opportunity to bring peace in the region by rejecting the dialogue and said that it was arrogant.
He also hit out at New Delhi for speaking the language of war and said that creating fear among people by speaking the language of war is not bravery or nationalism.
“Unfortunate that another opportunity to talk peace with Pakistan and bring the region out of duress was shunned by GOI in its arrogance,” Mirwaiz said. “People can’t be fooled all the time.”
On Saturday, Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat had called for avenging Pakistan Army and militants’ ‘brutalities on Indian soldiers’, saying it is time to give it back to them in the same coin, “not by resorting to similar kind of barbarism, but in a manner that the other side must also feel the same pain.”
On Friday, India called off talks with Pakistan following the killings of three policemen in Kashmir.
