Geelani’s visit to Pak still uncertain

SRINAGAR, Nov 16: While separatists have been busy with preparations for the upcoming visit to Pakistan, the uncertainty prevails over Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s visit to the country.

The advisory council Hurriyat Conference (G) is yet to deliberate on the invitation sent to Geelani by Pakistan almost a month back, leaving hanging the decision on his visit. While the meeting is likely to be held soon, the exact date for it has not been fixed so far.

“The advisory council has not met yet because we were busy with other developments. But it will meet soon and decide on the visit…The dates for the meeting have not been decided so far, but it will be held very soon,” the spokesman of the conglomerate, Ayaz Akbar, told Kashmir Times.

All prominent separatists in Kashmir have been invited by Pakistan for visit a seven-day visit from December 17 to 23. They are expected to discuss Kashmir with the country’s administrators at Islamabad.

Geelani’s response to the invite carries significance in view of the result of last invitation to separatists from Pakistan in 2010. All invitations were cancelled after Geelani refused to visit for not being recognised by the country’s leadership as the main leader. He has been criticising the change in Pakistan’s stance over Kashmir, and has also rejected the four-point formula by General Parvez Mushraff.

The Mirwaiz Umar Farooq led Hurriyat Conference (M) on other hand has been busy preparing for the visit. It held a high level meeting earlier this month to discuss the agenda. And later a high level delegation led by Mirwaiz Umar went to New Delhi to meet the Pakistan High Commissioner. Maulvi Muhammad Abbas Ansari, Prof Abdul Gani Bhat, Bilal Gani Lone and Agha Syed Hasan Al Moosvi Al Safvi were part of the delegation.

The JKLF Chairman, Mohammad Yasin Malik, too has not come up with a clear nod to the visit. He has been in New Delhi for treatment of his kidneys.
