Srinagar: Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JLKF), Muhammad Yasin Malik on Thursday said that by issuing invitations through twitter that too saying whoever wants to come is free to join; Indian leaders are making a mockery of dialogue process and institution.
In a statement issued to KNS, Malik said that only talks between all concerned parties to the Jammu Kashmir issue can prove fruitful as dialogue between India and Pakistan, India and Kashmir and Pakistan and Kashmir have failed to yield any result so-far.
JKLF chief who is languishing in central jail Srinagar from 8th July 2016 in his message sent from jail today while terming the invitation of Indian home minister for talks through twitter as ridiculous, said that dialogue and talks is the only institution all civilized humans rely upon for resolution of disputes and issues but the way Indian leadership is making a mockery of this august institution is highly regrettable and dangerous.
Malik said that talks are held between two parties on the basis of equality but here is Indian home minister acting like a visiting monarch, asking his subjects to reach to him and put forth their grievances and point of view.
He said inviting for so-called talks through twitter and asking everyone who wishes to join to reach such and such address is like making a mockery of dialogue process and this trend is too dangerous and speaks volumes about the arrogance and of Indian leadership and their colonial mindset towards Kashmir and Kashmiris.
Malik said that Jammu Kashmir issue is a living realty and its early resolution is not only desired by the suffering people of Jammu Kashmir but equally essential for the betterment of people of India and Pakistan and also vital for the peace and prosperity of whole south Asia.
He said that history is witness to the fact that dialogue between India and Pakistan, dialogue between India and Kashmir and dialogue between Pakistan and Kashmir has failed to deliver from last 70 years.
