Kashmiri Pandit Organisations Reject Dialogue With APHC
16 July 2005
Jammu: Three Kashmiri Pandit (KP) organisations today rejected the proposal for talks with the All Party Hurriyat Conference saying the move would in no way facilitate the return of KPs to the Kashmir valley. 'A diaolgue process always has a proper methodology as well as a clear agenda and APHC's decision is sans both,' the leaders of Panun Kashmir, Kashmiri Samiti - Delhi (KDS) and All Kashmiri Pandit Solidarity Conference (AKPSC) told reporters here. The APHC led by Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, which has proposed to hold dialogue with the KPs in Srinagar on July 19, has not formally approached any pandit organisation, Panun Kashmir chairman Ajay Chrungoo and KSD president Sunil Shakhdar said. 'The utterances of APHC leaders after their Pakistan visit, indicate an agenda that leaves no scope for dialogue with the Pandit community,' AKPSC president O N Trisal said.
