Geelani Accuses Pak Of Influencing OIC's Decision
26 June 2005
Srinagar: Apparently perturbed over not being invited for OIC Foreign Ministers' meet in Yemen, the hardline Hurriyat Conference today charged Pakistan with using its good offices in getting invitation for Mirwaiz-led Hurriyat from OIC and justifying its decision to recognise that faction as the real one. 'Since Pakistan recognises Mirwaiz Umer Farooq led Hurriyat as real Hurriyat, to prove its decision correct it used its good offices and got invitation from OIC for that Hurriyat,' Hardline Hurriyat Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani told PTI. However, he said he was not worried for not being invited by OIC as Islamic countries have no role with regard to Kashmir issue. 'I trust in god and not Islamic countries for resolution of Kashmir issue,' he added. Geelani said the people of Jammu and Kashmir have to decide and support the Hurriyat which represents them correctly.
