Kashmiri activist Sushil Pandit on September 6 warned the Centre post the visit of the all-party delegation to Kashmir and said the separatists move not to indulge in dialogue clearly indicates that they are acting on the orders received from Islamabad.
Accusing the Hurriyat of indulging in politics, Pandit said they are least concerned about the ongoing violence in the valley due to which several innocent people are losing their lives.
He said the Hurriyat feels that the situation on ground where there is total breakdown of the state machinery and law and order and a complete chaos means that the situation favors them and they shouldn’t talk.
“There are strict instructions from Pakistan. Pakistan feels that through Hurriyat they will be able to bend India’s will and resolve,” he added.
The Kashmiri activist was also critical of the all-party delegation while emphasizing that they did not allot the same time to all stakeholders during the dialogue process.
“The decision of the all-party delegation to visit Jammu was taken in haste. It was not a pre-decided move…The delegation stayed there (in Jammu) only for two hours and the Kashmiri Pandits were given just eight minutes to put forth their views,” said Pandit.
“So, this clearly indicates a mindset which is least concerned about issues and if they continue in the same manner it will be a great loss for the nation,” he added.
Singh had earlier said that the delegation had very good interactions with individuals and groups and that it would meet in Delhi and discuss the future action plan.
Before winding up the visit, the Home Minister also sent out a clear message to separatists, asserting that Jammu and Kashmir will always remain an integral part of India.
He, however, said doors are open to everyone as far as talks are concerned.
Kashmir has been on the boil since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.
