(Srinagar-AlummahWorld, 14 Jumada I, 1436, 05 March 2015) In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders have asked India to accept Jammu and Kashmir as a dispute if it is sincere in resolving the dispute through peaceful talks.

The leaders were commenting on the assertions made by the new puppet Chief Minister of occupied Kashmir, Mufti Muhammad Saeed, who while addressing a in Jammu, yeterday said that it was necessary to take Hurriyet leadership on board for peace in Kashmir.

The veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement said they are not against the dialogue process but Indian government should accept that “Kashmir is not a part of India” before deliberating on it. “Until they don’t accept it, talks are meaningless,” said Gilani. He said New Delhi should accept the five-point proposal which his party put forth in 2010. “Right to self-determination, withdrawal of armed forces from the valley, release of all Kashmiri prisoners, withdrawal of all black laws in the valley, culprits of civilian killings in 2010 should be booked and punished,” he said.

The All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said, “We are always in support of a meaningful dialogue. We are closely monitoring the situation. In the past also, such things have been said but at the end they all turned out to be hoax.” Mirwaiz said, “Kashmir dispute is a reality and India should acknowledge it.”
Senior Hurriyet leader, Shabbir Ahmad Shah said BJP should accept the ground reality of Kashmir before initiating dialogue process. “Let them accept that Kashmir is a dispute and its occupation is illegal. Why BJP didn’t agree for a dialogue earlier, it’s all politics that is being played for the sake of power,” Shah said.

“If Indian government is sincere in resolving Kashmir issue, they should change their communal and stubborn approach towards the valley. Till date 118 rounds of talks were held between India and Pakistan on Kashmir issue but without any success,” he added.
Mufti Muhammad Sayeed addressing his maiden press conference in Jammu after taking oath as puppet Chief Minister of occupied Kashmir said “We will try to engage all stakeholders for peace in J&K. Let’s take Hurriyet on board too; they also have a view point,” said Mufti.
