Hurriyat (M) condemns house detention of Mirwaiz

'It is a deliberate attempt to curtail Mirwaiz’s efforts of reaching out to people'


Srinagar, Feb 24 (KNS): Strongly condemning the house detention of Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Hurriyat Conference (M) has said that it is a deliberate attempt on part of the government to curtail the Mirwaiz’s efforts of reaching out to people.
In a statement issued to KNS, Hurriyat (M) said the move is highly deplorable as every now and then Mirwaiz is confined to his house by the autocratic rulers without any rhyme or reason who only know the language of using force to crush the genuine dissent.
Meanwhile Hurriyat Conference (M) expressed serious concern over the escalation of tension between India and Pakistan on borders stated that a dangerous trend has started on the LoC which can engulf the entire region.
Hurriyat (M) appealed to the international community to play their role and ensure that both the nuclear powers shun the confrontational approach and start a sustained dialogue to resolve the issues in a peaceful manner. Hurriyat said that the basic rift and tension between the two countries is pending Kashmir issue and urged the both countries to start a meaningful dialogue so that loss of precious lives on the both sides of borders is stopped forthwith.
Hurriyat Conference (M) said that due to the continuous skirmishes and increasing tension between India and Pakistan forces in Kashmir and Jammu region, hundreds families have started migrating to safer places and the ongoing exchanging of heavy fire is resulting in the loss of human lives on the both sides, which is very unfortunate and painful. He said borders are witnessing a scary and war like situation forcing people living closer to border areas, to shift their bases to safer areas.
Hurriyat (M) said if the both countries remain at the logger heads and in an confrontational mode, the situation is all set to take an ugly turn which can engulf the entire region and lead to a full-fledged war.
Hurriyat Conference (M) appealed to the United Nations and all influential countries to play their part in diffusing the present crisis on the borders of Kashmir and initiating a sustained dialogue so that the region is saved from a possible war.
Hurriyat said that it is high time for India and Pakistan to show political maturity, farsightedness to resolve the vexed Kashmir issue so that people of this region heave a sigh of relief. (KNS)
