Early Times Report
JAMMU, July 10: The change in air in Kashmir was evident on Wednesday when instead of spewing anti- India venom, separatist and chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq lunched drug de- addiction campaign from his ancestral home in Srinagar.
Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday presided over a day-long seminar over drug abuse in the Kashmir valley at Mirwaiz Manzil in Srinagar. Islamic scholars, civil society members and various NGOs participated in the day-long seminar in which issues related to women were also discussed. "A day long seminar of Ulema, civil society members and NGOs on the very serious concern of drug abuse in valley and issues relating to women in society held at Mirwaiz Manzil. Various suggestions discussed and panels formed to take them forward. As issues concerning all of society, all need to do their bit about them (sic)," Mirwaiz said in a tweet.
Reports added that a daylong seminar of Ulemas civil society members and NGOs on the very serious concern of drug abuse in valley and issues relating to women in society held at Mirwaiz Manzil. Various suggestions discussed and panels formed to take them forward.
Meanwhile, such an important development has taken place after a very long time that instead of separatism and anti- India rants, there are societal issues being discussed at threadbare in separatist centres- one amongst them was Mirwaiz Manzil of Srinagar.
There are already speculations rife that the separatist leaders have preferred not to indulge in anti- India activities any further and not to insatiate people through statements and appeals.
Pertinent to mention that there was no strike call given by the separatists for the first time in last 30 years on the visit of the home minister. Such a vital development had indicated a tectonic shift in the policies of the separatist leaders of Kashmir.
Furthermore, it was Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who welcomed any such move that could initiate reconciliation between the separatists and New Delhi.
On last Friday of Muslim holy month, Ramadan, when faithful in hordes went to offer congregational prayers at Kashmir's Jamia Masjid, region's most influential separatist and religious leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq went upto the mosque's pulpit and made an unpredictable statement.
This 46-year old separatist leader who enjoys influence in Kashmir's political landscape wanted Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide a bulwark against the swirling tides in Kashmir.
This tectonic shift was found when Mirwaiz made an open offer from the pulpit of the grand old mosque to the Indian government for the resolution of seven decade old conflict. "People of India overwhelmingly voted for Mr. Modi. This mandate gives PM Modi an opportunity and the power to play a decisive role in resolution of the issue. It is an opportune time to initiate political processes," said Mirwaiz as lakhs of devotees were all ears to such an incalculable offer.
