SRINAGAR: Rejecting any solution to the Kashmir problem that would be synonymous to status quo and other than independence, National Front chairman Nayeem Ahmad Khan Friday said that he was not invited by the Huriyat leadership during its recently held meet of general and executive council.
Khan told local news agency, KNS that he is not in contact with the Huriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq for the last one and a half years and that his party does not subscribe to the decisions that were recently taken at the Huriyat meet.
Khan, along with his ideological mentor, Shabir Shah has been maintaining a distance with both factions of the Hurriyat Conference for nearly two years now.
Khan, who earlier was the member of the general council of Huriyat Confrence said: I have not been invited to attend the recently held meet hence the decisions during the meet are not ours and we cannot subscribe the views that evolved.
When asked the reason of the separation from Huriyat (M), Khan said that he is not in the ongoing Kashmir struggle due to the Huriyat but had only helped the amalgam at certain times. I am associated with the struggle since my childhood. I was a freedom fighter even before Huriyat was established.
It is better to ask Mirwaiz Umar Farooq why Nayeem Khan is not going to Huriyat office. Mirwaiz should spell out who is with him and who is not with him, said Khan adding that at an appropriate time he will reveal the reasons of differences that he has with the Huriyat (M)
Khan further stated that the status qou or any other option other than Azaadi is not the solution of Kashmir issue and will not be accepted by the Kashmirs leadership. The people who want Kashmir issue to get resolved without having any ambiguity will find us with them always and we want this movement to go forward without ambiguity.
