“MIRWAIZ to offer Saudi mediator role. Move aims to consolidate on PM’s recent visit to the country”, said a report in Indian Express dated May 17, from Srinagar. The report further said, “with China visit already on cards- Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq will soon be leading a delegation to Saudi Arabia. His mission is to consolidate on the recent visit of the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to the country early this year by urging the Saudi government to mediate in the resolution of Kashmir dispute.” The report further added that the visit by Mirwaiz, will also be about creating awareness in the country on the Kashmiri dimension of the Indo-Pak dispute. To do this, Hurriyat is enlisting the services of OIC office in Jeddah, it revealed.
If the report is true it is a serious matter. The Government of India has so far not denied the report. It is not clear at what stage Manmohan Singh has found Mirwaiz-a treacherous agent of Pak sponsored jehad in Kashmir-a dependable ally of India to represent India. Has he been inducted as a special emissary of the UPA government?
And at what stage has the UPA asked Saudi Arabia to mediate between India and Pakistan on Kashmir? India has always maintained that Kashmir is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan and that it will not allow any third party intervention. At the time of the Prime Minister’s Saudi visit, the then Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Sashi Tharoor had hinted at enlisting the Saudi role as interlocutor for peace in Kashmir. This was widely resented across the political spectrum and the government immediately clarified that there was no such agenda. If what Mirwaiz is claiming is true then, Manmohan Singh owes an explanation to the nation. Not only that. It would mean that the claim being made by some Pakistanis that Mammohan Singh is working or has already agreed on major concessions to Pakistan on Kashmir, has to be taken on its face value. It is not easy to believe that the Prime Minister is so naïve as to assume that he has the mandate to concede to Pakistan what it wants by keeping the nation in the dark. What is more shocking is the UPA establishments’ natural camaraderie with the enemies of the nation.
For the last two weeks, Manipur is in turmoil because, the UPA has allowed the secessionist Naga man Muivah to freely roam around in the border state inciting communal passion. The fellow should have been in jail for treason, but for the UPA, he is a VVIP. The NSCN(IM) outfit led by T Muivah is waging a terrorist struggle from abroad for a so-called sovereign Naga homeland, including parts of Manipur along with Nagaland and his presence with official patronage has raised many eyebrows. With the church in the Northeast playing an active role in the Northeast insurgency and the UPA chief Sonia Gandhi’s well-known proclivities for the Christian cause in India, it is understandable that Muivah has of late become a frequent visitor to India enjoying a red carpet welcome in the official circuit. His access to the establishment has only vitiated the political scene in the troubled Northeast.
Similar sympathetic voices are often heard from the Congress high command for the Maoist butchers ensconced in the so-called red corridor consisting of Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Jharkhand and West Bengal. The underground, blood thirsty marauders masquerading as Maoists, Jehadis and insurgents have found extraordinary sympathy if not covert and overt support in the Delhi darbar under Manmohan Singh. It is an easy guess whether he is being guided by the Congress President or vice versa. For the last one week the nation has witnessed the tossing of the four year old Afzal Guru file between the Home Ministry, Delhi Chief Minister’s office and the Lt. Governor’s office. What is clear is that the UPA is not interested in hanging the terrorist involved in the Parliament attack even eight years after the incident. On the Mumbai 26/11 convict the tax payer is footing a bill of Rs two lakh per day, which so far has cost over Rs 40 crore, according to one report. The UPA is not only running a soft state, it is also showing that it is wantonly indulgant towards divisive, insidious elements and woefully indifferent to protecting the nation’s integrity and unity. On its first anniversary let the UPA-II clarify its stand on Kashmir, Northeast insurgents, Maoists and terrorists.
