Consider JK as international crisis: Geelani
When a group of members from the delegation visited him on Sep 20, Geelani also demanded that the government has to accept their five-point programme, if they really want to bring the separatists to the dialogue table.
A group of MPs from the team also reached out to other separatists like Mirwaiz Omar Farooq and requested them to end the relentless cycle of violence that has left more than 100 people dead in the last three months.
Hurriyat leaders, Mirwaiz and Yasin Mallik, who atfirst rejected the invitation, finally decided to acquire a soften position and also received the delegation.
Yasin Mallik said in a statement, "We have decided not to go there physically but we have given our memorandum."
