Mirwaiz urges India to withdraw troops

Ppi May 10, 2010


The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that India should withdraw its troops from occupied Kashmir if it wants any progress in the dialogue process with Pakistan.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, addressing a public gathering at Ompora in Badgam, called upon the people to march towards Eidgah Srinagar on May 21 on the occasion of the martyrdom anniversary of Mirwaiz Moulvi Muhammad Farooq.

He said, on one hand India says it is ready to solve all disputes with Pakistan including Kashmir but on the other, Indian Army Chief states that draconian laws in the occupied territory will not be repealed.

Asking the people to remain cautious during the forthcoming so-called census, he said that India had a plan to change the demographic composition of Jammu and Kashmir through fudging the census figures.

India has been meticulously manipulating the census in the territory to convert the Muslims into a minority, he maintained. The APHC Chairman stressed the need of initiating tripartite talks involving Pakistan, India and the real Kashmiri leadership to resolve the Kashmir dispute.

He also appealed to the Amnesty International, Asia Watch and other international human rights bodies to take note of the surge in the rights violations by the Indian troops in the occupied territory.
