24 January, 2013
Srinagar: The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that the presence of UN Military Observer Group (UNMOGIP) in Kashmir is highly imperative until political resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
The APHC Chairman addressing a seminar in Srinagar termed the India's suggestion at the UN Security Council debate as a crude joke.
"Hurriyet Conference believes that until Kashmir issue is resolved politically, presence of UNMOGIP (UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan) in Kashmir is imperative," he said.
"You have seen that there was lot of escalation in tension in the past and until Kashmir issue is resolved, we cannot guarantee truce on ceasefire militarily nor can we talk of ay political stability in the region," he added.
Mirwaiz underlined that any agreement between "India and Pakistan in the past cannot supersede the United Nations resolutions on Kashmir."
Others who spoke in the seminar—Concept of Freedom in Light of Prophet Mohammad (SAW) Teaching— included Professor Abdul Ghani Butt, Maulana Abbas Ansari, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi and Maulana M S Rehman Shams.
