Srinagar: Reiterating his call of unity to all pro-freedom leaders, Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Friday asked India and Pakistan that people of Jammu and Kashmir would not accept any solution that was impose on them. Addressing a congregation in Char-e-Sherief on the occasion of annual Urs of Sheikh-ul-Alam (RA), Mirwaiz urged India and Pakistan to respect wishes and aspiration of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. “We will not accept any imposed solution on us,” Mirwaiz added. He said that there has been a mounting international pressure on both India and Pakistan to resolve Kashmir and asserted that Hurriyat Conference craves for peaceful solution of the issue through dialogue. Asking both the neighbours to capitalize on the “golden opportunity”, Mirwaiz warned of serious repercussions in case the chance was allowed to go vain. He also called up pro-freedom leaders including chairman of other faction of Syed Ali Shah Geelani and JKLF chief Yasin Malik to forge unity, terming it imperative at this jucture. “Today the question is not of party or supremacy but all about the future of Kashmiris and we all have to move together to secure it,” he added. He also asked mainstream parties including National Conference and People’s Democratic Party to join pro-freedom ranks in case they were sincere. “They should stop shedding crocodile tears and join us,” he added. He also reiterated conditions for entering into dialogue with India calling it to repeal “draconian” and other black laws, complete withdrawal of troops from city and villages, upholding of human rights, permission to take processions, unconditional release of all detainees and opening of all routes between divided parts of Kashmir to allow hassle free contact between people on either side of LoC
