Srinagar Jul 14 (Only Kashmir): Chairmen of both the factions of Hurriyat Conference Thursday strongly denounced the serial blasts in India’s financial capital Mumbai that left several people dead and scores injured yesterday.
Expressing sorrow over the loss of innocent lives in the blasts, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said the ghastly act had been carried out to derail the dialogue process between India and Pakistan.
Mirwaiz said anybody involved in violating the sanctity of human life can only be described as an enemy of humanity, according to a statement issued here to Only Kashmir
“The Kashmiri people feel the pain and suffering of those who lost their loved ones in these blasts because we are ourselves going through miseries and suffering for the past several decades. There is hardly a family in Kashmir which hasn’t lost its dear ones (to violence),” Mirwaiz said.
“Such ghastly acts are meant to derail the dialogue process between India and Pakistan but we hope that leaders of both the countries adopt a positive approach and take the dialogue process forward so that all outstanding issues are resolved and peace established to defeat the designs of perpetrators of violence,” he said.
Chairman of the parallel Hurriyat faction, Syed Ali Shah Geelani said the “serial blasts in Mumbai that claimed the lives of several innocent people can only be described as the worst kind of terrorism.”
“Whatever the motives and intentions, there is no justification for spilling innocent blood. The murder of any innocent human being whether by a person, group or state is an unpardonable sin,” he said.
However, Geelani said it was too early to “jump to any conclusions because Malegoan, Ajmer Sharif, Mecca Masjid and Samjhauta Express like incidents have proven that terrorism is not linked to just one particular community. In every society there are people suffering from a sort of mental sickness, who have no qualms about shedding the blood of innocent people.”
But Geelani added that there was need to look into the “root causes of such events,” saying states should conduct “surveys to see whether this (terrorism) is not a natural reaction to state oppression and terror , or whether it is the injustice and oppression of rulers which forces the oppressed to become oppressors.”
“Usually such incidents occur in places where people are forced to live with their heads down, or where the basic and genuine rights are usurped,” Geelani said, adding that “social inequality and economic exploitation also contribute.”
“Terrorism is not confined to a particular country or region but has become a global phenomenon which calls for states to review their political, social, economic and militarily policies and addressing the deprivations and anger of people,” he said.
