Mirwaiz refuses to appear before NIA for questioning

A day after NIA issued fresh summon notice to Hurriyat (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday, he categorically refused to appear before the investigation agency. Farooq was summoned by NIA to appear before it in New Delhi on Monday next week.

“I will not travel to Delhi, nor will I turn up for any investigation come what may,” said Mirwaiz during his Friday sermon at historic Jama Masjid in Srinagar.

Farooq also appealed youth to be calm and do not sway in emotions. He also stated that there is no military solution to the Kashmir issue.”India and Pakistan need to talk and solve this issue,” said Farooq.
