Overwhelming mandate given to Modi gives him an opportunity to play decisive role in K-resolution: Mirwaiz

Srinagar: Mirwaiz  Umar Farooq, Chairman of the Hurriyat (M) has said that the overwhelming mandate given to Narendra Modi by the people of India gives him an opportunity to play a decisive role in the resolution of Kashmir conflict.

Speaking during his Jumat-ul-Vida sermon at the Jamia Masjid, Mirwaiz said, “As people of India overwhelmingly voted for Mr. Narendra Modi and his party back into power, this mandate gives PM Modi the opportunity and the power to play a decisive role in the resolution of the long-pending Kashmir conflict which has consumed generations of Kashmiris and is preventing durable peace and development in the entire region.”

Mirwaiz said that he believes that this issue cannot be resolved militarily or through confrontation but by dialogue and deliberations and Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s oft-repeated offer of dialogue on all issues between India and Pakistan including on the Kashmir issue should be seriously considered by the new dispensation in New Delhi as the way forward.

Mirwaiz said today all Kashmiri’s irrespective of their organizational affiliations are speaking in one voice about the urgent need for resolution of the conflict .

“So it is an opportune time to initiate political processes which enable and facilitates conflict resolution.,” he said.

Mirwaiz said as in the past Hurriyat is willing to support every such initiative which aims at a peaceful resolution of the dispute keeping in view the sentiments and aspirations of the people of Kashmir who are the main stakeholders and which puts an end to decades of loss and suffering inflicted on them due to the lingering conflict.
