Pak, Hurriyat show thumb to BJP's interlocutor

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 25: If the intention of the Narendra Modi Government was to induce Kashmiri separatists to shun the path of violence and confrontation and come forward to meet the newly-appointed interlocutor for Jammu & Kashmir former Intelligence Bureau Director Dineshwar Sharma to present their views on Jammu & Kashmir, it is unlikely to fructify. None of the Kashmiri separatist has reacted to the new initiative of Prime Minister Narendra taken just three days before the accession day hoping that it would induce them to join the proposed "Sustained dialogue on Kashmir".
Contrarily, they have ordered Kashmiri Muslims to observe a complete shutdown across the Valley to register protest against the decision of the Indian Dominion to send Army on October 27, 1947 to evict the Pakistani intruders. It was on this day 70 years ago that the Indian Army landed in Kashmir to save Srinagar against the Pakistani raiders, regular and irregular.
The Geelani-Mirwaiz-Malik trio has preferred to leave everything to the care of their masters in Islamabad (Pak capital), Rawalpindi (Army headquarters) and Muridke (Lashkar chief Hafiz Saeed's headquarter), whose game they have been playing for almost three decades now to mint money and lead a luxurious life. And it was Pakistan which came out with a response that was on expected lines. Islamabad rejected the whole idea of appointing an interlocutor for Jammu & Kashmir and, instead, it reiterated its 68 year old stand: Resolve Kashmir as per the UN resolutions, give Kashmiris the right to self-determination and Jammu & Kashmir was an unfinished agenda of partition.
Speaking for the Hurriyat, Pakistan today said no interaction or dialogue would carry any weight without the participation of the Hurriyat Conference.
"India's move to appoint an interlocutor to understand the legitimate aspirations of people of Jammu & Kashmir is unrealistic. No interaction or dialogue would carry any weight without participation of the Hurriyat Conference," said Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria while responding to a question on the Sharma's appointment as interlocutor. He added that "if anything, the Indian Government's announcement illustrated a recognition - once again - of the futility of the use of force and of the indispensability of dialogue".
He also pitched for trilateral dialogue between India, Pakistan and Kashmiri Muslims to resolve the issue once and for all, "However, for any dialogue process to be meaningful and result-oriented, it has to include the three main parties - India, Pakistan and Kashmiri Muslims. The need of the hour is to have dialogue for peacefully resolving the Jammu & Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people. This is imperative for ensuring durable and sustainable peace and stability in South Asia. Pakistan hopes that the international community would play its rightful role in facilitating such an outcome," Nafees Zakaria said.
New Delhi must realize that nothing would come out of the proposed exercise. The demands as put forth by Pakistan and its Kashmir-based agents include demilitarization of the state and separation of Jammu & Kashmir from India. They will not accept anything short of this. India can't afford to accept them. For, to accept them would mean another communal partition of India and wholesale destruction of the non-Muslim minorities in the state, which are already feeling insecure.
