All Parties Hurriyat Conference (g) Saturday discussed the invitation to participate in a proposed ‘Kashmir Conference’ to be held in Pakistan later this month.
Pakistan administered Kashmir President has extended invitation to all separatists leaders and a few unionist politicians to attend the program.
“The members in the meeting unanimously ruled out the participation of Hurriyat Conference in the said conference in Pakistan in which the pro-Indian politicians are also among the invitees,” a Hurriyat (g) statement issued after a meeting of the Hurriyat amalgam held a meeting at Hyderpora which prayed for the early health recovery of octogenarian Geelani.
Taking exception to the invitation extended to unionist politicians, Geelani said, “the invitation to the pro-Indian politicians by the responsible heads of the Base Camp of our freedom movement (Azad Kashmir) is very unfortunate and sorrowful.” “The pro-Indian politicians are always finding reasons and bases to blackmail our freedom struggle and befool the common people of Kashmir.”
Geelani, who has not been keeping good health for some days, said, “the pro-Indian political parties or the politicians are equally responsible for the crimes, atrocities and the oppression committed by the Indian occupational forces upon the unarmed and innocent people of occupied Kashmir. The responsible rulers of the Base Camp of our freedom struggle should not invite the pro-Indian politicians in their conferences.”
Geelani reminded that in the recent past, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) was cancelled in Pakistan when the authorities there refused to invite the Assembly Speaker Kashmir in the said conference “so there is no justification with the Azad Kashmir President for inviting the pro-Indian politicians in the Kashmir conference”.
Geelani ordered to issue Show Cause Notice against those constituents of the amalgam about whom the reports are coming that they have cooperated in the holding of such a conference without informing the Hurriyat Conference, the statement added.
