Hurriyat invites Pandits to Kashmir Valley for parleys

JAMMU, FEB 3 (PTI), Outlook

Underscoring the need to emerge from the shadows of fear and "rebuild trust", the Hurriyat moderate faction today invited Kashmiri Pandits to another round of interaction talks with Muslims in the Valley.

"There is a need to rebuild trust, which is shadowed by element of fear for past 16 years. We will organise a heart-to-heart conclave to facilitate interation between the Kashmiri Pandits and Muslims in the Valley in the near future," Hurriyat Conference Chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq told a gathering here.

He extended an invitation to the Pandits for parleys and added "we should not depend upon the government structure for these interations and the issue of return of displaced migrants to the Valley. It’s a major challenge for us and we are working at it".
