Srinagar, Aug 10: Chairman (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said the mainstream leaders and parties in Kashmir have “failed to safeguard the negotiated terms of temporary accession with India.”
Mirwaiz made the remarks during his Friday sermon at historic Jamia Masjid here.
Taking to Twitter soon after his Friday sermon at the grand mosque, Mirwaiz said the successive governments in New Delhi have steadily violated the condition of “temporal accession” the country had agreed upon till right to self determination was to be held in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mirwaiz alleged that mainstream politicians in Kashmir “became willing tools to eradicate those conditions negotiated during “temporary accession” in the past seven decades.”
“At Jamia, while successive Govts in India steadily violated conditions of the “temporal accession” it had agreed upon till plebiscite was held in J&K, the sad part is that pro India leaders & Parties who had negotiated those conditions with Govt of India were unable to either safeguard these conditions or compel GoI to uphold them. Instead, on the contrary they for their weakness of chair became willing tools in the systemic violation of these conditions over the past 70 years, till things have come to such a pass where our very existence is under grave threat!” Mirwaiz tweeted.
