Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday said that the New Industrial Policy to be introduced by the state assembly is a ploy to settle non-state subjects in Kashmir.
Hitting out at BJP, Mirwaiz Umar said statements of the leadership of rightwing Bharatiya Janata Party were a clear manifestation of their ostrich policy on Kashmir. He said assertions of BJP leaders about keeping Kashmiris out of the talks on Kashmir issue were not going to change the political and historical importance or the disputed nature of Kashmir.
“It is not an administrative, electoral or a law and order issue but an internationally accepted political issue involving the future of the people of Kashmir,” Miwaiz said while addressing a massive gathering at historic Jamia Masjid here.
Describing the BJP Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s statement in Jammu that people of Kashmir had no role in the resolution of Kashmir issue, as his ignorance on the subject, the Hurriyat (M) chairman said, “BJP leadership must come out of their self illusions about Kashmir, understand the fundamental political as well as historical realities about Kashmir and adopt realistic policy besides initiating a meaningful dialogue with the people of Kashmir and Pakistan for the resolution of Kashmir issue.”
Condemning the restrictions on the movement of separatist leadership and their arrests, continued house arrest of Syed Ali Geelani, arrest of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, he said “such tactics cannot suppress the peaceful resistance struggle of the people.”
Mirwaiz said that the New Industrial Policy to be introduced by the state assembly is a conspiracy to settle non-state subjects in Kashmir.
Informing that the unified resistance leadership would announce joint resolutions regarding the Kashmir issue on Jumat-ul-Vida (the last Friday of Ramadan), the APHC Chairman said these resolutions would be presented before the people in all Masjids, shrines and Imam Barghas for their approval.
Announcing the Waiz-o-Tableeg programme during the remaining 10 days of Ramadan, he said, “A Majlis would be held from 4 pm on June 26 at Masjid Farooqui Lakripora Nowshera.
On June 27, a programme would be held at Dastgeer Sahab Sarai Bala from 4 pm to Asr prayers on the historicity and philosophy of Fateh-e-Makkah.
On June 29, an event would be held at Masjid Peer Padshah Sahab Bota Kadal from 4 pm to Asr prayers while as on June 30, a programme would be held at Neeli Masjid Bota Shah Sahab from 4 pm to Asr prayers.
On July 1, a programme would be held at Jamia Masjid Srinagar in which importance of Jumat-ul-Vida would be taken up from 12 noon, and on July 2, the Shab-e-Qadr would be observed at Jamia Masjid Srinagar from 11: 30 pm to 2: 15 am.”
