Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Calls for Dialogue, Urges New Delhi to End House Arrest and Embrace Peaceful Resolution

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq stated on Friday that if New Delhi takes one step forward, he will take two steps towards a peaceful resolution of issues. Speaking to the media at Jamia Masjid Srinagar after Friday prayers, he expressed hope for dialogue and lamented his house arrest without any legal notice.

“It is unfortunate that the government keeps me under house arrest without any legal grounds. I hope this policy ends, and I am allowed to move freely and share my views publicly,” he said.

Farooq emphasized his commitment to his ethical stance, hoping the government will take constructive steps. He reiterated the Hurriyat Conference’s support for dialogue to address pending issues, despite facing attacks.

He also voiced concerns about the detention of youth and the complicated verification process for jobs and travel documents in J&K, urging the government to simplify the process.

“If the government takes one step forward, we are ready to take two,” he stated, but he also warned that the Hurriyat Conference will not succumb to New Delhi and J&K administration’s “iron fist” policies.

“We don’t want violence and bloodshed. We don’t want our youth filling jails and graves. It’s time to move forward. The government should abandon its muscle-power policy and adopt a realistic approach to resolving issues,” he concluded.
