Mirwaiz said that the BSF men took firing positions on the main road like the battle and started firing upon civilian crowds which was another dark day in the history of Indian rule in Kashmir. He said India has never taken any concrete steps to address such pages of history which shows their non seriousness regarding the Kashmir dispute.

Mirwaiz Yasir said India and Pakistan should come on a dialogue table and resolve all their issues including Kashmir with stakeholders across Kashmir on board. “Dialogue for the sake of dialogue is not what is needed, but a credible dialogue without any further delay with cross sections of the society is the dire need,” Mirwaiz said. He said that the presence of huge numbers of people on militant funerals should be an eye opener for one and all who have chose to live in delusion and baseless rhetoric.
