Srinagar, Nov 9: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Saturday said that amalgam in principle is not against the dialogue processes between India and Pakistan.
In a statement here a spokesman of the conglomerate said that a meeting of the amalgam chaired by Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani was held at Hyderpora today. "All the participants observed and unanimously reaffirmed the stance that Hurriyat Conference in principle is not against the dialogue processes between India and Pakistan however, until the Kashmir issue is resolved in accordance with the wishes of people the dialogue process is futile," the spokesman said.
The meeting, he said, observed that for past 66 years and "because of the stubbornness of India," Kashmir issue has remained lingering and resulted in instability and uncertainty in the region.
Participants paid rich tributes to Jammu martyrs, the spokesman said, adding that Hurriyat Conference would hold a seminar on November 12 at 11pm to pay homage to martyrs.
"Participants expressed satisfaction over Geelani's release. They observed that despite atrocities and all repressive measures authorities could not deter people from perusing their right and their passion for achieving freedom is becoming stronger with each passing day," the spokesman added.
"The members observed that amalgam's policy regarding the elections is nothing new. Hurriyat Conference since 1996 has been calling for poll boycott and it is following the same policy," the spokesman added.
"Participants reiterated if their activities are not restricted, they would prove that the elections conducted in state are manipulated by forces and majority of people would like to remain aloof from this drama."
All constituent members or their representatives including Jammu Kashmir Employees Movement, Democratic Political Movement, Mass Movement, Muslim Khawateen Markaz, Muslim League, ' Peoples Freedom League, People's League, Tehreek e Wahdat e Islami and Muslim Conference leaders attended the meeting.
