The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, accused India of using a violent path to silence the non-violent movement of Kashmiris for right to self-determination. Speaking at the conference organized by the prestigious British think-tank, the Royal United Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies, in White Hall London, Mirwaiz said the people of Kashmir have chosen non-violent expression of their dissent by peaceful demonstrations. But the unfortunate part of it is that India has chosen the path of violence to silence our aspirations. More than 120 people were killed in cold blood. Disproportionate use of force by India has made the Kashmiris to lose faith in any of their initiatives. The movement is in the hands of young men and they believe in peace and are peaceful, Mirwaiz said. He said India was denying political space to Kashmiris. As a consequence we do not find any role for the interlocutors who have not spelt any specific agenda which could be considered by the political leadership. Kashmir needs to be seen through the prism of Kashmiri aspirations and the current movement in Kashmir is simply its reassertion, he said. Mirwaiz asked India to create a conducive atmosphere for tripartite or triangular dialogue while stressing on implementation of the conglomerates four-point agenda for constructive engagement with New Delhi. The conference titled 'Asian Powers in Kashmir covers four major subjects: violence in Kashmir - the global context, the Kashmir Dispute and South Asian regional security, the role of China and Sino-Indian rivalry in the Kashmir dispute and the post-Simla agreement environment and Indo-Pakistani dialogue. Earlier, the speakers underscored the need for the global powers to realize the sensitivities of the emerging scenario in South Asia and the centrality of Kashmir dispute to it and importance to resolve the dispute.
