Hurriyat constitution can’t be amended: Shabir Shah
Asks people to make May 30 strike call a success
Pulwama, May 25: Terming the constitution of the Hurriyat Conference as ‘not amendable,’ Democratic Freedom Party president and senior Hurriyat (M) leader Shabir Ahmad Shah on Friday said that any amendment in the constitution would erode the basis of the Kashmir issue.
Terming freedom as a ‘blessing’, Shah impressed upon the youth to oppose and diffuse, what he called, the conspiracies against the Kashmir movement.
Shah while addressing a gathering in this south Kashmir town expressed solidarity with family members of Asiya and Neelofar of Shopian, who were allgedly raped and murdered in 2009. He urged people to make the May 30 shutdown call a success.
“The basic character and essence of the Hurriyat Conference constitution is not amendable,” Shah said adding that he and his colleagues would not allow anyone to harm the basis of the Hurriyat’s constitution.
Impressing upon the youth to defeat any conspiracies against the movement, Shah urged the youth to remain vigilant against elements which are trying to amend the basic character of the movement.
Rejecting any bilateral dialogue, Shah said that such arrangements are not going to solve anything. “Such efforts have failed in the past and will meet the same fate again. He reemphasized that the solution to the Kashmir issue can either be found by implementing the UN resolutions or through a trilateral dialogue between India, Pakistan and Kashmiris.
Other leaders who spoke on the occasion included National Front Chairman Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement President Zafar Akbar Bhat and JKLF (H) President Javed Ahmad Mir.
