Moderates call for Kashmir strike on India’s Republic day

Srinagar
Jan 22, 2007:

While a delegation of the moderate faction of All Parties Hurriyat Conference on a Pakistan visit has called for an end to armed struggle in Kashmir, back home the group has called for shutdown on Indian republic day.

After a meeting of the group chaired by senior leader and former chairman Molvi Abbas Ansari today, the group asked Kashmiri people to ensure a shutdown on Jan 26, an APHC(M) statement said.

The statement appealed people to “ensure a complete shutdown across whole of Jammu and Kashmir, to make it clear to the world that as long as India does not accept and acknowledge genuine rights of Kashmiris, people of Kashmir will continue their struggle till the goals are met”

On Monday the APHC(M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar, said in Pakistan that it was time for calling an end to armed struggle in Kashmir.

The statement was criticised by rival faction of APHC and the Muzaffarabad based United Jehad Council.

A shutdown on Indian Republic Day and Independence Day is observed every year in Kashmir since an armed anti-India insurgency broke out in the region in 1989.

Heightened security arrangements and blockades by police ensure minimal movement of people, creating a curfew like scenario on the two days.
