Meetings with 'own people' will not help: Hurriyat

Written by: Staff

Srinagar, Feb 28: The moderate Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today (Feb 28, 2006) said the meetings between the Centre and the 'people of its liking' would not help resolve the world's most complicated Kashmir problem.

In a statement here, the amalgam also said that the Centre was not serious in improving the ground situation in Kashmir which in turn would help resolve the long-festering issue, and termed as 'misleading' the government's claims of improving human rights conditions in the state.

"The prevailing ground situation in the Valley betrayed the insincerity and lack of seriousness on the part of Government of India to resolve the Kashmir issue", the Hurriyat said.

The separatist conglomerate said the meetings between the central leaders and the 'people of their liking' would not help resolve the world's most complicated problem of Kashmir.

"Kashmir has virtually been transformed into a garrison where killing of innocent civilians is on the increase and atrocities touching new heights. As a result, the ongoing dialogue process is losing its importance with every passing day", it added.

The Hurriyat also expressed concern over the condition of prisoners in various jails of the country, saying the detainees have not been released by the government despite court orders and expiry of the detention period.

"Prolonging their detention despite release orders tantamount to contempt of courts", it added.
