Srinagar, April 02, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Awami Action Committee (AAC), headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has vowed to intensify its campaign for peaceful settlement of the Kashmir dispute through right to self-determination and tripartite talks.
The Awami Action Committee in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the AAC at a meeting, chaired by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, passed a six-point resolution. The meeting discussed the fallout of the execution of Muhammad Afzal Guru in Kashmir after February 9.
The AAC six-point resolution condemns the secret hanging of Muhammad Afzal Guru in New Delhi’s Tihar jail. “It is so unfortunate that Guru was hanged in the wee hours without even meeting his family members.”
The AAC also passed a resolution seeking the mortal remains of Muhammad Maqbool Butt and Muhammad Afzal Guru back. “The act is highly condemnable. We demand the release of all arrested youth and the leaders who have been placed under house arrest,” the statement added.
The AAC meeting through the resolution made its political stand clear. “We believe there are only two ways to resolve the vexed Kashmir issue—right to self determination or the tripartite dialogue,” the statement said.
“The resolution of Kashmir is must to ensure peace in the South Asia.” The meeting also asked the authorities to follow the Geneva Convention rules and jail rules while dealing with the prisoners.
The AAC members urged the people to show steadfastness and to follow the programs issued by the Mutahida Majlis-e-Mashawarat religiously.
Meanwhile, addressing the meeting the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, expressed concern over use of the draconian laws against ordinary people in the Valley to suppress their peaceful struggle.
