Mirwaiz urges Modi to engage with Imran Khan
Srinagar, Nov 30: Hurriyat-M chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give peace a “real chance by positively responding” to his Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan’s offers of engagement.
“Narendra Modi should positively respond to Imran Khan’s repeated offers of engagement so that both can build trust and give peace a real chance,” Mirwaiz said today while addressing a Friday congregation at Jamia Masjid.
He said that there is no military approach to the issues.
“Military approach to issues can never succeed, but human approach to them, as witnessed in the opening of Kartarpur Corridor, is the best way forward,” he said.
He also appealed to the Government of India to stop the killings of Kashmiri youth and blinding them by pellets.
He said that “India should show the maturity of a democracy they claim to be by engaging with Pakistan and Kashmir and resolving this long-standing dispute in a peaceful manner.”
