Koul launches campaign for Congress candidate from Anantnag constituency
Srinagar, April 13, (Scoop News)-Expressing happiness over Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s return after a grilling session by National Investigation Agency (NIA) , Peoples Conference (PC) leader, Sajjad Gani Lone, has welcomed the Kashmir’s religious head back to home from Delhi.

In a tweet circulated on social media, Sajjad said “happy to c @ Mirwaiz Kashmir back in Srinagar. A grueling ordeal for someone as gentle as the Mirwaiz Umar sahib, irrespective of political differences he is a religious head and a uniting force for Muslims in Kashmir. I hope Delhi understands the reverence that he commands.”

Mirwaiz was summoned to Delhi by the NIA in a terror funding case earlier this week. He was questioned by the agency for three consecutive days.

Meanwhile, Mirwaiz alleged that efforts were being made to coerce separatist leadership to change their stand on Kashmir issue.

He said there was no military solution to Kashmir imbroglio and appealed the India and Pakistan to seek a political solution to the vexed issue. Mirwaiz said the policy of separatists was clear that Kashmir was a political issue which needs to be handled politically.

“The Kashmir issue has no military solution. It is a political issue and has to be dealt with politically,” he said adding New Delhi should understand that the military approach would not solve the Kashmir problem.

“There is only one way to resolve Kashmir issue and that is the political way.”

Addressing a Friday congregation at historic Jamia Masjid, Mirwaiz said the problem is an old one and dates back to 1947 and this pulpit has been witness to the growing aspirations of the people for past over 70 years.

He said recent crackdown on against separatist leaders including questioning by the NIA and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) were part of the Centre’s strategy to change the stand.
