Srinagar: A day after senior leaders of the faction had a scuffle at Raj Bagh headquarters, Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Monday said the conglomerate will discipline its members involved in breach of the conduct. 'Yesterday’s incident at the Hurriyat headquarters has been brought to my notice. Disciplinary action will be taken. There would be no compromise on indiscipline within the amalgam,” Mirwaiz said while addressing a press conference at his residence in Nageen, where he was placed house arrest. He along with many separatist leaders were placed under house arrest as Hurriyat (M) was commemorating death anniversary of Mirwaiz Molvi Farooq, Abdul Abdul Gani Lone and all those who lost their life in two decade old conflict. Mirwaiz said they were capable of settling indifferences within the conglomerate and need no preaching from mainstream parties. “Everybody takes government on its face value and we know what their reputation is,” he said. “Omar says Kashmir conflict is a battle of ideas but his government places us under house arrest when we just try to honour our leaders. The government’s statement that gathering at Eidgah will ‘breach the peace’ is mirror image of how much faith they have among masses. Government has people phobia and they are afraid of them at every step,” he said. Asserting that people don’t have to come on streets everyday to keep the Kashmir issue alive, Hurriyat (M) chairman said, “Our struggle for Kashmir remains alive in hearts and minds of people. Any resistance, which lives in hearts, sustains forever. The 2008 and 2010 uprisings are the classic example of that”. He also said Kashmiri leadership welcomes the improvement in relation between India and Pakistan. “Either implement UN resolutions or stage a tripartite dialogue for a permanent Kashmir solution,” he said. Mirwaiz said he will address a gathering at Langate on Tuesday. “On Tuesday, I will march to Langate to honour those, who were killed in the 22-year-old conflict,” he said.
