Former Union Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar and Center for Peace and Progress & civil society member OP Shah on Thursday met Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Farooq’s residence. Mr. Mamni said that there should be talks between India and Srinagar and India and Pakistan. He also adds that this will help in reducing the tensions between the the 2 nations.
The political motive of this meet is yet to be unearthed. These are the people who call themselves as separatists and create regular disruptions in the valley and hinder the developmental work.
A political party usually have its own agenda and stick to it but Congress is a party which for the sake of being in power is ready to do anything. This is a fresh example. Here Former Union Minister met Huriyat leader Mirwaiz Farooq.
Who is Mirwaiz Farooq?
Mirwaiz Mohammad Umar Farooq is the Mirwaiz of Kashmir and a Kashmiri separatist leader. He is the chairman of the Awami Action Committee, one of the two key factions of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, a “grassroots coalition” of pro-Pakistan and pro-freedom parties in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mirwaiz Farooq was also not satisfied with the Indian Army’s decison of honouring the Army Major. This statement was not a surprise from . The development of meeting Mirwaiz Farooq by Congress leaders were followed by this. So can we conclude that Congress is openly saying “Those who are against India and its developmental policies are openly embraced by Congress.”
