Hurriyat (M) leaders today said that the conglomerate leaders will not meet the All Party delegation of  which is arriving in Kashmir on Sunday. 

"It an exercise in futility. Hurriyat believes that the most peaceful and democratic way of resolving the Kashmir issue is to give the people of Jammu and Kashmir the right of self determination that they have been promised or alternately hold an unconditional and meaningful engagement among the three stakeholders to the dispute—India, Pakistan and the people of J&K— and resolve it in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of people of Kashmir," spokesman of the Hurriyat (M) quoting Maulana Ansari said in a statement. 

"So to suggest talks under Indian constitution shows that India is not ready to acknowledge Kashmir's disputed nature and hence is not interested in resolving it," Ansari said.

Meanwhile, a delegation of the Hurriyat Conference (M) leaders today visited the residence of the slain 12-year-old boy Danish Sultan at Palpora here to express sympathy and solidarity with his family.

The delegation comprised Moulana Masroor, G N Zaki and other leaders and activists.

Addressing the condolence meeting and a peaceful protest march, Moulana Ansari appealed to the people to follow the protest calendar given by the unified resistance leadership. 

"Tyranny and oppression by New Delhi will not deter the people from continuing to peacefully pursue their struggle for right of self determination," he said. 

Condemning the arrest spree of youth and children, G N Zaki said, "such suppressive tactics will not bring government of India its desired results as people in general and youth in particular are resolved to take the ongoing resistance movement forward towards its goal."

Meanwhile, Hurriyat spokesman said, "So far in the current agitation around 2000 persons have been arrested, 600 more held in detention, 109 booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA) which clearly illustrates political intolerance and vengeance of the government towards the people's movement."

The spokesman termed the night raids, breaking of window panes of residential houses, ransacking household items, setting cars and motor cycles afire and beating up inmates as "war crimes." committed allegedly by the forces against civilians.

Hurriyat (M) spokesman also strongly condemned the beating photojournalists discharging their duty by the forces. "It reflects the frustration of the ruling regime that can go to any extent to hide and suppress the truth of Kashmir from reaching people," he said.  

"The recent media gag in which local channels have been taken off air for showing the reality of Kashmir to viewers is the same fear of truth getting exposed that completely unnerves the regime and they again responded with their standard response of gagging and censorship," he added.
