Srinagar: Moderate Hurriyat Conference
chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said there was need for
accelerating the dialogue process between India and Pakistan
for resolution of Kashmir issue.
"The pace of dialogue process between India and Pakistan
is very slow. If we talk in cricketing terms, India and
Pakistan are running for singles...Today is the time for
hitting fours and sixes," Mirwaiz said at Friday congregation
in Jamia Masjid here.



He said people of Kashmir have been waiting for the last
63 years for resolution of the issue.



"Time is running very fast. Kashmiris are waiting for a
solution," he said, adding that a political will and
determination is needed for resolution of the Kashmir issue.
In an apparent reference to the killing of an NC office
bearer on Wednesday, Mirwaiz said, "Hurriyat condemns if a
person is being killed for his political views or affiliations
...Hurriyat believes in democratic values and everyone has a
right to speak be he pro-movement or anti-movement."
