In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has emphasised that Kashmir is a political dispute, which can be resolved through dialogue process involving Pakistan, India and the Kashmiri people. According to Kashmir Media Service, the APHC Chairman in a media interview in Srinagar maintained that New Delhi should withdraw its troops from the territory, repeal black laws, remove bunkers and release Kashmiri detainees to create an atmosphere for resolving the dispute. He said that India's intransigence was the main hurdle in resolving the lingering dispute. "The people of India have to know the bitter fact that the people of Kashmir are not Indians," he said. Referring to the recent anti-India demonstrations, the Mirwaiz deplored that the Indian government was complacent to the deteriorating situation in the territory. "India comes running to you the moment there is trouble in Kashmir. They speak of dialogue and there is a flurry of official exchanges. But the moment normalcy returns to Kashmir, by the standards of the Indian government, they forget about the problem," he said. On the other hand, addressing a public gathering in Srinagar, the APHC Chairman strongly denounced the recent killing of an 8-year-old by Indian troops in Islamabad town terming it as a glaring example of state terrorism. "New Delhi has used all its military might to crush the just movement of Kashmiris but has failed. The killings of innocent people has strengthened our resolve to take the movement to its logical conclusion," he said. The Mirwaiz said that the liberation movement was indigenous with the objective to achieve right to self-determination. "The ongoing agitation will continue till India accepts Kashmir as a disputed territory, withdraws its troops and releases all political prisoners and youth from jails," he added. Castigating the leaders of pro-India parties for maintaining criminal silence over the killings in the territory, he said, "These leaders have been at the forefront of executing anti-Kashmir policies of New Delhi. Time has come for them to decide whether they are with Kashmir or India," he added. Strongly condemning the desecration of Hazratbal shrine and use of force on the people living around it by Indian troops and police, he demanded action against the erring troopers and policemen and free access to people to offer prayers at the shrine. He pointed out that some vested interests were trying to communalise the present movement by scaring the members of Sikh community to migrate from the Valley.
