Srinagar, May 19 : Hurriyat(M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Sunday said they were ready to support the dialogue provided India and Pakistan initiate the process of talks afresh on Kashmir.

He said they were not against development of talks but India should accept Kashmir as a disputed territory “We aren’t against the people of India, we are against the policies of India which are being implemented here,” he told KNO while addressing a seminar at Hurriyat headquarters at Rajbagh here .

Mirwaiz said that it was unfortunate that New Delhi has choked all means of peaceful protests, seminars and even pro freedom leaders aren’t allowed to meet people. “How can ideas come up when all space stands choked,” he said.

 

He said there is no military solution to the Kashmir dispute as even late Atal Bihari Vajpayee too realised that dialogue was the only solution to resolve Kashmir. “That’s why he advocated solution within the ambit of humanity,” he said.

Mirwaiz said that the GoI must roll back all the decisions especially ban on organisations, CBMs, and should also release all leaders without any pre-condition.
