Hurriyat and Jammu and Kashmir

The Tribune, India, Hurriyat does not represent Jammu & Kashmir, says PoK PM, by Tariq Naqash and the arrangement with The Dawn,

Muzaffarabad, June 25, 2005 – Azad Kashmir (Pakistan occupied Kashmir-PoK) Prime Minister Sardar Sikandar Hayat on Friday questioned the representative character of the All-Party Hurriyat Conference (APHC) saying it did not cover all regions of Jammu and Kashmir.

“How can we accept any decision (on Kashmir) by those who live under compulsions, do not have unity among themselves and lack representation of all regions,” he said while speaking in the ‘Azad Kashjmir’ Legislative Assembly.

Hurriyat (love for freedom) had not come out from a specific area, he said, and no one from the Jammu region had visited ‘Azad Kashmir’ and Pakistan.

“The decision of the Kashmiris from both sides, including non-Muslims, will be welcomed but implementing a decision of one faction or an area cannot be accepted,” he said.

The ‘Azad Kashmir’ Premier appealed to Hurriyat leaders to forge unity in their ranks and, at the same time, reminded Syed Ali Geelani that ‘difference of opinion’ among the leadership had already left adverse affects on the Kashmiris in 1947.
