2 Indian forces’ personnel killed, 10 injured

Srinagar, June 12 (KMS): 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, said the five-point formula presented by the Hurriyat in 2010, provides a baseline for any dialogue with India. The formula asks for acknowledgment of Kashmir as a dispute by India, demilitarization of the territory, release of all political prisoners, revoking of all draconian laws and punishment to the troops involved in civilian killings. The spokesman said that the Indian leadership, which suffers from arrogance of power, is hell bent on issuing declarations to kill the people of Kashmir by tagging them as stone-pelters. 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. »
