Individual opinions cannot override Hurriyat’s collective decisions:Mirwaiz

Asks constituents to respect amalgam’s constitution

SRINAGAR: Stating that the individual opinions in Hurriyat Conference (M) cannot override the collective decisions of the amalgam, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, chairman of the Hurriyat (M) Sunday asked all the constituent parties to respect the Hurriyat constitution.

In an apparant bid to controll damage done by the recent remarks of executive member of his faction that Kashmir was in dire need of an alternative resolution process in view of UN’s failure to live up to its commitments, Mirwaiz said in a statement that Hurriyat was a forum where everybody’s opinion is being heard and respected, however individual opinions cannot override the  collective thought and decisions of the forum. Mirwaiz has further emphasized that the constitution of the Hurriyat is to be respected and followed by all the constituents.

Senior Hurriyat (M) leader Prof Abdul Ghani Bhat Thursday had challenged Syed Ali Geelani and other separatists who advocate implementation of UN resolutions, to resolve Kashmir, ‘if they can’.

“The fact is United Nations has failed to resolve Kashmir issue and even after 65 years, no progress is seen vis-à-vis its settlement. We have to take benefit and rely on Indo-Pak talks but with utmost caution and vigilance,” Prof Bhat said in an interview.

Bhat also observed that whenever the Hurriyat leadership moves ahead for the Kashmir resolution, it is being termed by many parties as a ‘sell-out’ and that the same is being repeated at present. “I want to tell those people who say Hurriyat was involved in a sell-out that we have already been sold and we cannot have a new sell out,” former Hurriyat chairman said.
