Shabir Shah forms another Hurriyat outfit

Shah issued a press statement announcing the new outfit and said the party will not compromise on the real issues of Kashmir.

Senior Separatist leader Shabir Shah launched a new organisation on Friday — JK Hurriyat Conference. The outfit follows a third split in the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, which is headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
Cracks within the separatist amalgam had became evident when Shah, head of the Democratic Freedom party (a constituent of Hurriyat), with other senior separatist leaders claimed they were the real Hurriyat. On Friday, Shah issued a press statement announcing the new outfit and said the party will not compromise on the real issues of Kashmir. He said the JK Hurriyat Conference will act as a resistance platform for the people and appealed to people fighting for the cause of Kashmir to join.
Shah, along with Chairman of the National Front Nayeem Khan and Mahaz-e-Azadi chief Azam Inquilabi, are believed to be annoyed with Hurriyat Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq for writing a letter to the Hurriyat chapter in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, urging them to not entertain any representative of the three there. The leaders did not mention Mirwaiz in their statement.
