Hurriyat (M) Surprised Over Dulat’s Assumption

SRINAGAR: Hurriyat (M) Friday expressed surprise over the former RAW chief AS Dulat’s  assumption that Mirwaiz “could have joined mainstream politics”.

“APHC’s (M) engagement with both India and Pakistan was only aimed at resolution of the Kashmir dispute and not for any electoral ambitions,” an amalgam said in a statement Friday evening.

The statement said the Hurriyat engaged in several rounds of talks with the political leadership of India and Pakistan on the issue and is still stuck to its stand that “the issue can be resolved either by implementing the UN resolutions or holding a meaningful dialogue involving all parties concerned”.

Dulat had said Mirwaiz Umer Farooq was one such leader who could be roped into the mainstream. “But he is a scared person and fears for his life,” he said.

‘Salahudin’s son secured MBBS seat on merit’

Meanwhile militant outfit Hizbul Mujhadeen has refuted the allegations and claims made by former RAW chief that UJC chief Syed Sallahuddin contacted IB to adjust his son in medical college. 

Spokesperson Salim Hashmi in a statement said that Dulat’s revelations are based on lies and there is not an iota of truth in them.

“Salahuddin’s son secured medical seat on merit basis. Salahuddin is not in touch with any government or private agency and neither he is linked with any intelligence setup. This is a white lie and the accusations have been made to create doubts among people with regard to ongoing freedom movement. People know everything and they do know Indian agencies can go to any extent to weaken and defame the ongoing Kashmir Freedom Struggle,” the statement reads.

Pertinently, former Indian premier intelligence agency chief A.S.Dulat in his book has  recalled how on one occasion Syed Salahuddin, head of the HizbulMujahideen, contacted the IB head in Kashmir, K M Singh, to help his son get into medical school and how Singh approached Farooq Abdullah who did the needful. Dulat said it’s not unusual for IB and R & AW to do such favours for militants and “terrorists”. He said it often happens. “Sometimes it’s a way of maintaining contacts.” (CNS)
