Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik on Thursday called the New Delhi’s Ramadhan ceasefire as a “cosmetic measure”.
Addressing a seminar, titled ‘Responsibility of Leadership in Safeguarding the Sanctity of Martyrdom’ organized by the Hurriyat(M) at its Rajbagh headquarters, the leadership called for the resolution of Kashmir issue.
“Until and unless a comprehensive plan is not made to resolve the Kashmir issue, these cosmetic things won’t work,” said Malik, while reacting to the ceasefire
Mirwaiz added “we need to find the root cause of the conflict and the reason why youth is picking up arms. We need to address the dispute”.
Earlier, he said that calling strikes is their compulsion and that the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) was working to find an alternative strategy.
“Hartals is our compulsion, but the Joint Resistance Leadership is working to find an alternative strategy (to register protest),” he said.
