He said all recognised parties in J&K, including the BJP, should “put their heads together” and draft a joint resolution asking India and Pakistan to end the stalemate. Former chairman of Hurriyat Conference Abdul Ghani Bhat said all recognised parties in J&K, including the BJP, should “put their heads together” and draft a joint resolution asking India and Pakistan to end the stalemate.

A separatist leader in the Valley Friday asked mainstream and separatist parties in Jammu and Kashmir to sit together and draft a resolution asking India and Pakistan to resume the dialogue on Kashmir issue. Former chairman of Hurriyat Conference Abdul Ghani Bhat said people in India and Pakistan should build pressure on their governments against the “war mongering and jingoism”.

During the release of his book Beyond Me, Bhat said the Kashmir conflict is the foundation of “darkness” in the subcontinent and has engulfed the whole South Asian region. He said all recognised parties in J&K, including the BJP, should “put their heads together” and draft a joint resolution asking India and Pakistan to end the stalemate.

“Leaders of all the parties in J&K will have to get together to consider a draft resolution, impressing on the leadership of India and Pakistan that the stalled dialogue process is resumed forthwith in the interest of peace, stability and the throbbing hearts of people of J&K,” Bhat said.

        I believe the people of Jammu and Kashmir have a right to live in peace. To have peace one has to talk. After all the wars and destruction Europe has been able to live in peace and prosper only after talks and agreements. Peace based on outdated religious beliefs will never hold- One needs people with vision and commitments to negotiate peace to succeed. Examples are Churchill, de Gaule and Roosevelt who inspite of their victories did not condemn the germans but with talks ensured peace in Europe. Are the stanis ready for that?

                    Now you, the Hurriyat found that your brothers in stan are dying due to the retaliation by Indian army. There won't be any talk with stan. We will hit them hardly and will keep quiet. You, Pak based can go and join with Musharraf. This is Mother India meant for Indians. You get out from my country. You are eating my bread and letting out in the same vessel in which you eats. Mirwaiz Umar I am giving you warning that if you want to live in India behave well, otherwise get out from my country, rascal.
