A day after Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led Hurriyat faction accepted the Eid Milan invitation by Pakistan High Commissioner to India in New Delhi, JKLF-led by Chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik Friday decided to boycott the party.

Reliable sources said that in a meeting chaired by Malik, it was decided that the JKLF shall not attend the Eid Milan of Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi.

Earlier, Hurriyat (g) chairman Syed Ali Geelani boycotted the Eid Milan saying that Pakistan did not mention ‘K’ word in Ufa meet when Pakistani and Indian Prime Ministers met in Russia, recently.

Following the suit, Dukhtaran-i-Milat chief, Asiya Andrabi too decided to boycott the function on similar reason saying “Kashmiris can’t be taken for granted”.

“Ignoring Kashmir in negotiations is not acceptable and to register our democratic dissent, JKLF will not participate in Eid Milan party hosted by Pakistani high commission in Delhi,” the JKLF said in a statement.
