Talks with India to be futile until it accepts Kashmir's disputed status: APHC

Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that unless India accepts Kashmir as a dispute, it would be an exercise in futility to hold any sort of talks with New Delhi.

The APHC Chief Spokesman, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, in a statement issued in Srinagar, today (Tuesday), said the five-point formula presented by the Hurriyat in 2010, provides a baseline for any dialogue with India.

 He regretted the inhuman Indian attitude to kill people for demanding their basic right, and said despite witnessing dozens of Jalianwala Bagh-like massacres, the people of Kashmir could not be forced into submission.

Clashes between the Indian troops and protesters erupted in DK Pora area of Shopian district, today, after the troops came under heavy stone pelting for trying to erase anti-India and pro-freedom graffitis and slogans in the area. The troops resorted to firing and teargas shelling, while the youth pelted the troops with rocks, resulting in clashes for hours.

Meanwhile, two Indian police personnel were killed and another was injured in an attack in Pulwama town, today. The attackers also took away the rifles and ammunition of the policemen. In another attack, 10 Indian troops were injured in a grenade blast in Janglat Mandi area of Islamabad town.

Indian army continued its cordon and search operation in Bandipora district for the fourth consecutive day, today.
