Hurriyat Conference (M) on Sunday asked New Delhi to fulfill promises made by its leaders to people of Jammu and Kashmir and resolve Kashmir issue according to their aspirations. 
“The promise made to the people of J&K by Indian leadership should be honored and they should be given the right of self determination for which they are striving for the past 70 years,” Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said in a statement. 
“An unconditional and meaningful engagement between India, Pakistan and people of Jammu and Kashmir, who are the three parties of the dispute, can provide alternate ways of resolution of Kashmir issue. This can provide an alternate ways of resolution of the issue,” it said. 
“Even on the day when the Indian parliamentary delegation was coming for the so-called "reach out to people", their ruthless armed forces could not halt their killing and injuring spree even for the day. The murder of 20-year-old, Abdul Basit Ahanger of Qazigund who was first grievously injured by pellets and then pushed into the river by the forces, the indiscriminate firing on people in his funeral procession injuring dozens, or the absolute barbarism of firing pellets on four year old Barena in her eye and her eight year old brother Zafar in his chest, show the total brutality of the Indian agencies towards the people of Kashmir,” it said. 
“The alarming statistics that every six hours one person gets an eye injury due to the lethal pellet gun is shocking and shameful for the country that keeps trumpeting its democratic credentials across the globe,” the statement said. 
He condemned the arrest of senior Hurriyat leader, Moulana Masroor Abbas Ansari and his detention at the local police station while trying to peacefully march towards the airport as per the joint resistance program. 
He also condemned nocturnal raids on the residences of Hurriyat activists and youth.  
Referring to the open letter by the Kashmir Bar Association to the All Party delegation of the parliamentarians, the spokesman said “if the delegation really wants to educate itself about the issue and understand the people's demand the delegation should study the letter properly as it puts the Kashmir dispute in its factual historical perspective from 1947 and gives all the details relating to it till date.”
