  Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umer Farooq has warned that India is highly mistaken if it thinks the voice of Kashmiris can be suppressed through brutal use of force.

 In an interview with Radio Pakistan's Current Affairs Channel, he regretted that instead of showing flexibility following killing of dozens of Kashmiris, New Delhi has despatched more troops and police to Occupied Kashmir as part of its suppressive policies.

The Hurriyat leader said today even India media is acknowledging the fact that Kashmir is a political issue and not a question of economic interests or package of incentives.

He said India should realize that anger and hatred being displayed by Kashmiris is the outcome of the military approach being adopted by the Indian Government to resolve the dispute. He said Hurriyat Conference has been trying for many years for political solution of the issue but India has always given a military response.

Mirwaiz said Pakistan also took several initiatives for dialogue and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also visited New Delhi but India responded by suspending the dialogue process.

To a question, he said India is also trying to undermine Islamic identity of Occupied Kashmir by establishing separate townships for Pundits and brining non-state residents to the Valley. He said India is also bringing its hand-picked Imams to Kashmir for launching propaganda campaign in favour of Indian Government.

He said the international community should take notice of worst types of atrocities being perpetrated by Indian occupation forces on Kashmiri people. He said nine thousand and five hundred Kashmiris are missing and the world community should take notice of it.
