"Hurriyat will not deviate from pro-people commitments"

Special Correspondent

SRINAGAR: Maintaining that the Hurriyat Conference had been accepted as party to the Kashmir issue by the world community including Pakistan, its chief Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said on Saturday that the Government of India also had realised that the issue should be resolved through dialogue.

On the second day of the Hurriyat's Statewide people-to-people contact programme in Handwara town of north Kashmir, the Mirwaiz said the world community was advocating the resolution of the Kashmir issue through dialogue and "there is no justification for opposing this process."

The Kashmir issue had come out of the war field to the dialogue table, he said and vowed to take the "struggle" to its logical conclusion. He assured the people that the Hurriyat would not deviate from its pro-people commitments.

The Kashmiris, he said had finally been accepted as the principle party to over 57-year dispute involving divided parts between India and Pakistan.
