“Since we believe and understand that Kashmir dispute remains at the centre of the regional conflict, we appeal you to challenge the behaviour of Indian State in Jammu and Kashmir and urge it to stop this reign of terror,” they said.

“In the interests of regional peace and global justice we once again implore you to intervene and prevail upon the Indian state to shun violence and initiate processes for granting universally recognised Right to Self Determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” the separatists said in a memorandum addressed to the UN.

As its proposed march to the local office of the United Nations Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) was foiled by authorities by imposing curfew in some parts and restrictions elsewhere, the separatist camp released the memorandum to media outlets in Srinagar.

    Kashmir is an unfinished issue. Struggle,pain is only for common men in Kashmir's. Neither India nor stan interested in this generation for 70 years and still war waging against them. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;United Nation is only a doll in the hands of America. How many killed in Kashmir is not a question and no body knows that. In my own understanding the heart of Kashmir is not with India. If it why lakshs of Indian soldiers still there and suppressing agitation of Kashmiri youth. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;This problem will not be solved. Either those people can migrate wherever they wish or be with India. Fighting,agitation,struggle only result of ruin of a new generation, Now it has been more than 90 days children without schooling and instead books in hand they have stones. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Very pathetic plight in reality we have seen in Kashmir. The mother who lost young kids, the wife tears tricolor coffin of her husband this has to end. The clear solution is that to go with resolution as per UN and there should be a plebiscite.

      Kashmir issue is never going to be solved. Those who dead is dead and yet again children in the streets with stones in hand can never give a change to the situation. lt;br/gt;UN will not intervene in its’ matter as it is part of India and Kashmir is India’s and stani’s. Both shared this land. lt;br/gt;25 person each one military man is at valley. Any move and agitation against the government could be controlled with iron fist. lt;br/gt;Better Kashmiri’s migrate in your own wish. World is so big and your freedom will not be oppressed. Indian force too show atrocities against Kashmiri people is a reality. But blaming the Military is not an option here, with rifles and stones once you aggressively approach the military man what else than can do except use of guns in their hand. They bound to protect the nation and 12 crore people’s;br/gt;I have spoken with the Kashmiri on other side of the boundary POK. They too dream a free Kashmir. It means that no one is;br/gt;At present India and stan is not a Europe to grant you freedom immediately. No one to loss the land. But if it is in Europe country you might have achieved your freedom. lt;br/gt;We share your pain Kashmiris. History tell us what Kashmir is and what the issue there was. Be calm and send your kids to school. Do not trouble their future.

          Frankly speaking Congress party should never come to power as the leaders have no concern for the down trodden Indians. Muslims are just like Hindus, they are Indians and for that matter Indian Muslims should not even have a dream of having their wish imposed upon the majority of people of India. The BJP Prime Minister is a human being and there is a limit one will be able to tolerate provocative language being used by half cast "Indians". Politics can just not be anybody's cake . The days of misguiding by Congress are over and this time INDIANS will rise and totally wipe out CONGRESS. So if the other members of Congress want it to survive, for them the best solution is to clean up their party and start a fresh with INDIAN NATIONALISM and not FOREIGN NATIONALISM in the party leadership. The struggle is tough but nothing is impossible.

            The Muslim leaders like Nehru/Abdullah took the case to UN in order to gobble the JandK exclusively for Muslims in 1947. The UN is not an agency which promotes terror, India is not a banana republic to heed to the UN's decisions which doesn't serve the interests of the country, and this stan ISI agent needs to be imprisoned for life along with the Abdullahs in the JandK. The BJP/Modi's multi throng policy to contain/constrain the terror emanating from the Islamic stan is an intelligent strategy: lt;br/gt;1. Isolate stan - started with the boycott of the SAARC event held in stan with the full backing of Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. lt;br/gt;2. Trade sanctions - Suspend trade with stan in all facets of the commerce. lt;br/gt;3. Surgical strikes - Well planned, strategic surgical strikes in the POK. lt;br/gt;4. Expose stan terror to the world- Modi is seeking cooperation of the western countries to declare stan as a terror state.

              I think govt must accept the demand of hurriyat leaders. All these so-called rascal leaders want is 2 bottles of Rum every week.

                Dum Hurriyat Conference they are going to UN to seeks intervention on Kashmir issue then they should first learn the UN Resolution on the Kashmir;br/gt;It says in short (and its in Order)lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;1) stan should withdraw its Troops (Triblemens ) from Jammu and;br/gt;2) India also has to withdraw its forces from JandK but has to keep enough troops in there so they can defend the JandK agents the stan any;br/gt;3) Both this steps taken in effect then India should then appoint a Plebiscite Administrator nominated by the United Nations, who would have a range of powers including powers to deal with the two countries and ensure a free and impartial plebiscite in;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It means that to fulfill the first step Hurriyat Conference should go to stan to tell them to withdraw the troops from POK. I know they will not do that as they are getting lot off funds from across the border and will not want to cut that flow.
