SRINAGAR, Jan 09 (SABAH): All Parties Hurriyat Conference (M) has termed the dialogue, talked about by the rulers, as a “drama” being enacted to divert the attention from the ‘deteriorating’ ground situation in Kashmir.
“It is the height of hypocrisy that, on one hand, the subservient partner of the authoritarian ruling regime, the PDP sermonises and uses sugar coated terms of dialogue reconciliation and mutual trust building among stakeholders for the resolution of Kashmir dispute and on the other hand, it deals with an iron fist caging, banning, barring and gagging every voice of dissent and disagreement, unleashing unprecedented oppression in the form of unabated human rights violations, killings of innocents, maiming and blinding civilians, incarceration, torture and all kinds of atrocities to inflict pain to the people of Kashmir, “ Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said in a statement.
“While such a situation festers on ground and resistance leadership continues to remain caged in their own homes or jails, a drama is being enacted to create confusion and to divert the attention from the deteriorating ground situation in Kashmir by talking about such looking good things like dialogue, which in reality have lost their meaning for the people. People of Kashmir are wise enough to see through these gimmicks and won’t allow any conspiracy aimed at changing the basic discourse of Kashmir dispute to succeed,” he said.
Denouncing the continuous house detention of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the spokesman said, “The government decision to keep Mirwaiz forcibly confined to his house is a ‘policy of political revenge and harassment.”
