The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, on 22 June said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should hold a dialogue with for a resolution to the Kashmir conflict and bring peace in the region.

Reacting to reports of a recent ‘quiet’ visit of Indian officials to Doha to speak with the Taliban’s political leadership, the PDP leader said, “If they can go to Doha and talk to the Taliban, they should have a dialogue with us and with too in order to bring about a resolution.”

Mehbooba Mufti’s remarks come days ahead of a key of political leaders of Jammu and Kashmir with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Political activity picked up in the UT with political parties holding discussions over the past two days after the Centre invited leaders for a meeting with the Modi on 24 June.

On Tuesday, the leaders of the alliance met at Farooq Abdullah’s house in Srinagar to discuss the Centre’s invitation for an all-party meeting. The leaders of the constituent parties included Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti and CPI(M) leader MY Tarigami.

Following the meeting, Farooq Abdullah said the People’s Alliance for Declaration (PAGD) will attend the all-party convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Mehbooba ji, Md Tarigami sahib and I will attend the all-party called by Prime Minister Modi. We hope to keep our agenda before the prime minister and the home minister,” Farooq Abdullah said.

Speaking to reporters, a member of the alliance said there will be no compromise on Article 370 and 35A.

The remarks of Mehbooba in favour of a dialogue with came after a top Qatari official confirmed that Indian officials made a “quiet visit” to Doha to engage the Taliban’s political leadership.

This is the first time that an official involved in talks with the Taliban has divulged information about New Delhi’s secret rendezvous with the Taliban.

Speaking at a virtual event, Qatar’s Special of the State of Qatar for Counterterrorism and Mediation of Conflict Resolution Mutlaq bin Majed Al Qahtani said, “There has been a quiet visit by Indian officials to speak with the Taliban. Why? Because not everybody is believing that the Taliban will dominate and takeover because the Taliban is a key component or is going to be a key component of the future of Afghanistan.”

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), however, has declined to comment on Qahtani’s statement.

There has been no official word or confirmation by the MEA on any engagement with the Taliban leadership since the Doha talks began or even before.
