Hurriyet leadership not opposed to talks on Kashmir: Gilani

ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -2nd Sep,2016) : In Indian Occupied Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has said the Hurriyet leadership is not opposed to dialogue on Kashmir.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the people of Kashmir, in principle, were never against talks as they believed that even after deadly conflicts and destructive wars, things were settled through dialogue only.

"But, given the long and deceptive nature of talks on Kashmir, we have witnessed this exercise going on more than 150 times without yielding any results till date - the only reason being the unrealistic and arrogant attitude of India," he deplored,reported Kashmir Media Service.

The APHC Chairman said that India had forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir in 1947 and since then it was trying by its all means and might to legitimise its illegal hold.

"We are fighting for our basic right for past seven decades and whenever the struggle gains momentum and threatens the very existence of Indian control, they use these gimmicks to fizzle out the momentum," he added.

Syed Ali Gilani said, if India accepts Kashmir as a dispute and starts withdrawal of its troops from occupied Kashmir, setting a platform for the permanent and peaceful resolution of the dispute, we as the representatives of oppressed Kashmiris will welcome any and every move forward in this regard.

"However, we can't trivialize the sanctity of this grave issue by participating in a photo-session or for a cup of tea. We also appeal others not to indulge themselves into this futile exercise," he stated.
