Separatists reject Deoband clerics` Kashmir stand
Srinagar: Rejecting the stand taken by
Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind (JuH), a powerful body of Deoband clerics,
on Jammu and Kashmir, separatists today said Kashmir was an
internationally recognised issue and should not be viewed
from the Hindu-Muslim angle.
They, however, welcomed Jamiat`s stand seeking
revocation of the controversial Armed Forces Special Powers
"We do not view Kashmir issue from the Hindu-Muslim
angle. It is a political issue which needs to be resolved,"
moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq told
He said Kashmir was an "internationally recognised
dispute" and the problem could be resolved through dialogue
among India, Pakistan and leadership of the state.
Mirwaiz welcomed clerics` stand seeking revocation of
the Armed Forces Special Powers Act. He also appreciated the
concern shown by them over "violation of human rights" in the
JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik said the JuH was
issuing such statements out of compulsion and it would be
better for them not to dabble in Kashmir issue.
"It is their compulsion to issue such statements and
we can understand that. It would be better for them to stay
away from Kashmir issue," Malik said.
The JuH has said Jammu and Kashmir`s future lies with
India and the interest of Kashmiri people is not separate from
those of Indian Muslims.
