Hurriyat wants government to follow Vajpayee’s vision: Mirwaiz

Srinagar, March 23 (IANS) Moderate Hurriyat group chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq on Wednesday said they expect the Indian government to carry forward the spirit of Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s vision that called for settling dispute within the parameters of humanity.

He hoped India and Pakistan would evolve ways and means to include the people of Kashmir in the composite dialogue between the two countries.

Speaking to the media before leaving for New Delhi to attend the Pakistan Day function to which High Commissioner Abdul Basit has invited him, Mirwaiz said: “Hurriyat conference is not against any country or nation.

“We have always welcomed the dialogue process between India and Pakistan. We hope the two counties would evolve the ways and means to include the people of Kashmir in the composite dialogue process.

“We believe the vision of Atal Bihari Vajpayee would be carried forward in which he said issues should be settled within the parameters of ‘Insaniyat’ (Humanity) which is much greater than the parameters set by the constitution” .

Umer dismissed opposition to the separatist leaders attendance at the Pakistan Day functions in New Delhi.

“It is like creating a storm in the tea cup. We have always been attending these functions at the invitation of Pakistan High Commission. We go there to put forth our viewpoint and not to oppose anybody,” Umer said.
