Senior All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has categorically refuted the rumors being circulated in Indian media at the behest of agencies about a shift in his political ideology.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is under house arrest at his Srinagar residence since August 2019, in a statement said that some Jammu-based newspapers were falsely reporting about a meeting between him and a former deputy mayor of Srinagar and joining so-called “mainstream politics.

The APHC leader termed the reports as a malicious propaganda and a deliberate attempt to defame him. He urged people to remain vigilant of this spiteful propaganda and lies being peddled by vile and unscrupulous elements in Indian media.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that he has been undergoing the hardships and trials of incarceration without any charges for the past three years, because of his political beliefs and ideology. He made it clear that he stands firm on the Hurriyat commitment that Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally-recognized dispute, which is to be resolved as per aspirations of the Kashmiri people peacefully and justly, through dialogue among all the stakeholders in line with the relevant resolutions of the United Nations.—KMS
