SRINAGAR—In oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, top Hur­riyet lead­ers while ad­dress­ing a sem­i­nar in Srinagar has con­demned the anti-Kash­mir agenda of RSS-backed In­dian govern­ment and has said that In­dia is us­ing colo­nial plans to change the de­mog­ra­phy of Jammu and Kash­mir.

The sem­i­nar was part of the joint protest pro­grammes, call for which was jointly given by Syed Ali Gi­lani, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq and Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik against In­dia’s plans to con­struct sep­a­rate colonies for Kash­miri Pan­dits, In­dian sol­diers and Delhi’s new in­dus­trial pol­icy in the ter­ri­tory. The speak­ers warned that joint protests would be held if New Delhi con­tin­ued with its de­signs against the Kash­miri peo­ple.

The sem­i­nar was presided over by the Chair­man of All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence, Syed Ali Gi­lani at Hy­der­pora in Srinagar, to­day. Be­sides oth­ers, the func­tion was at­tended by Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, Muham­mad Ashraf Sehrai, Bashir Ah­mad Butt, Ab­dul­lah Tari and High Court Bar As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent, Mian Ab­dul Qayyum. Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah and Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik could not at­tend the event be­cause they were kept un­der il­le­gal house ar­rest. Un­der the joint pro­gramme, a sit-in protest will also be held at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Wed­nes­day.

The Chair­man of Hur­riyet fo­rum, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, dur­ing a meet­ing with Hindu spir­i­tual leader, Sri Ravi Shankar, who called on him at his res­i­dence in Srinagar, de­plored the si­lence of In­dian civil so­ci­ety and in­tel­lec­tu­als over In­dian atroc­i­ties in Kash­mir. He asked the vis­it­ing dignitary to in­form the In­dian pub­lic about the real sit­u­a­tion in Kash­mir, as the me­dia had al­ways mis­led the In­di­ans about the Kash­mir dis­pute.

The Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence, Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah in a state­ment is­sued in Srinagar, to­day, urged peo­ple to boy­cott the so-called by­elec­tions in Is­lam­abad district.—KMS
