Accusing the mainstream leaders of enacting drama in the Assembly by demanding justice for the people killed and blinded in five months of uprising in Kashmir, Hurriyat Conference (M) Wednesday questioned all members of the legislature why they went into hiding when people were "butchered by forces."

Hurriyat (M) made these assertions at executive council meeting chaired by the chairman of the amalgam, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, at his residence here. According to a statement, the meeting discussed the progress on transition to long term strategy for right of self-determination.

"It was observed in the meeting that people are keenly watching the drama that is going on in the State Assembly where much hue and cry is being raised about the mass murder of innocent Kashmiris in the past five months," Hurriyat statement said. "Kashmiris are not so naive and they fully know that these are just empty words, and the noise is being made for public consumption with an eye on votes and the ultimate aim of getting to the chair."

"When people were being ruthlessly massacred, have the legislators ever asked their masters in New Delhi to reign in the forces?" Hurriyat asked.
