Jehlum Post News/Srinagar/Mar 11, 2015/All Parties Hurriyat Conference Executive Body Majlish Shoora Wednesday held an important meeting at its head office Hyderpora, which was presided over by Hurriyat Conference General

Secretary Haji Ghulam Nabi Sumji. The meeting was attended by the heads and representatives of all its constituents. Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar said that the meeting thoroughly discussed the latest political developments in the state and deliberated upon the future strategy. While expressing their happiness over the release of Masrat Alam Bhat, the executive body paid rich tributes to his courage and valor and expressed their hope that he will soon start his political activities. Demanding immediate release of all other political prisoners, the Shoora said that all the brave hearts who are in jails are heroes of the Kashmiri nation and none of them are criminals. Terming the noise created over the release of Masrat Alam Bhat in the Indian parliament as ridiculous, the meeting said that this attitude is a big question on the democratic claims of India. Jammu & Kashmir high court has dozens of times issued release orders of Masrat sahib and he has been released on the orders of the same court. The Indian parliament members have themselves insulted their own judiciary by questioning the Masrat release. This attitude reflects extremist policies of India towards the Kashmiri nation and it proves that India only need land of Kashmir not its people.

The executive body expressed their apprehension that all this drama and noise created upon the issue is a part of the mutual understanding of both PDP and BJP and its purpose is to project Mufti Sayeed a pro-Kashmir politician so that the freedom movement of Kashmir will get damaged by him in future. While strongly endorsing and supporting the stand of Hurriyat Chairman Syed Ali Geelani regarding the Kashmir issue, the executive body in clear words said that the Hurriyat Conference is not against the dialogue process and nor are they afraid of talks but until India doesn’t accept the disputed nature of Kashmir and until they would not stop the rhetoric of integral part, all kinds of dialogues and talks processes will be fruitless and futile. Some pro-freedom leaders have experimented the bilateral dialogues with New Delhi in the past but that experiment have out rightly failed and the Kashmir dispute didn’t moved an inch towards its solution. The executive body also said that they are duty bound to further strengthen and make more pro-active the Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani and are desirous of seeing all the pro-freedom parties on a single platform with some set principles. Expressing their pleasure and satisfaction over the stand adopted by the Pakistan government vis-à-vis Kashmir issue during the recently held Indo-Pak foreign secretary level talks, the executive body said that until India too will not address Kashmir as its core issue, we can’t expect any breakthrough from the dialogue process of both the countries and this process will prove to be meaningless and fruitless.
