Former Hurriyat chairman and a senior leader of the moderate Hurriyat faction, Professor Abdul Gani Bhat, was the first separatist leader to visit PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti’s residence to express his condolences following the death of J&K CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. Speaking at Mufti’s Fairview residence on Saturday morning, Bhat credited Mufti for the “coming together” of India and Pakistan.

“India and Pakistan are getting together, not together but closer to each other. This was the fruit of the seed he (Mufti) sowed in the minds of people, not just in Kashmir and Jammu, but even in India and Pakistan,” he said.

In his 30-minute speech, Bhat praised Mufti’s “vision”. “Till his last breath, Mufti sahib wanted friendship between India and Pakistan. He wanted to take along Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian or Buddhists, even those who don’t believe in god. This big feat can be achieved when your heart is open and you have a clear vision,” he said.

Bhat said Mufti had his “hand on the pulse of people” of Jammu and Kashmir. “He gauged it well. He knew in which direction it goes,” he said.
