Govt needs to take Kashmiris into confidence: Mirwaiz



Srinagar: The moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference on Friday said that the Centre should work for amicable solution to the long standing issue for peace in Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing a public meeting at Gulshan chowk in Bandipora town of north Kashmir, 55 km from here, Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umer Farooq said, "The government needs to take Kashmiris into confidence...Kashmiris cannot be forced into submission by use of force.

"If India, Pakistan and the world community want peace, prosperity and development in the region, then the Kashmir issue should be resolved on top priority."

He said Hurriyat is ready to extend its support to both the Indian and Pakistani governments provided they involve Kashmiri leadership in the talks.
