While as Muslim Khawateen Markaz and Social Peace Forum confirmed and approved it on telephone.

As per a statement, the spokesman of the party, Ayaz Akbar said that executive members discussed the LoC fighting, statements of Gen secretary national conference Sheikh Nazir Ahmad, Police Chief Ashok Prasad, Martyr of Jammu in 1947, future strategy of Hurriyat Conference and added that several proposals were also discussed at length.

Geelani in his presidential address has expressed his serious concern over recent border clashes between India and Pakistan and said that shelling on both sides of borders has badly affected the people and took heavy tool of life and reiterated that unless the Kashmir issue is resolved as per the aspirations of people, the present situation on borders will not change. Geelani apprehended that the skirmishes on borders may lead to full fledged war between the two countries.

Geelani has stressed the implementation of resolution passed on Kashmir and said that Kashmir is not a border related dispute between India and Pakistan instead it is related to 13 million people and need to be resolve through right of self determination. He said that there is no option left for India except to accept the People’s verdict.

Meanwhile the executive council has termed the statement of Sheik Nazir Ahmad as ridiculous and irrelevant wherein he had stated that Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah and National Conference were not a party to instrument of accession with India.
