Srinagar: Hurriyat softliner Mirwaiz Umar
Farooq on Tuesday welcomed Anna Hazare`s crusade against corruption
but flayed the Gandhian`s stand that Jammu and Kashmir was an
integral part of India.

"There are no two opinions that corruption has to be done
away with as it is not limited to a particular state or
society," the chairman of the moderate faction of the Hurriyat
Conference said.

"Even in Jammu and Kashmir every government department is
corrupt," he told reporters after chairing a meeting of a
religious body here.

The Mirwaiz, however, criticised Anna`s stand that Jammu
and Kashmir was an integral part of India.

The social activist`s statement had "disappointed" the
people of the state, the separatist leader said.

Hazare, reacting to Prashant Bhushan`s support for
plebiscite in Kashmir, had said the state is an integral
part of the country.
