In an effort to chalk out a joint strategy for return of Muhammad Afzal Guru’s body, various separatist and religious organizations today met here to discuss modalities of a joint programme.

The meeting which was apart from the two factions of the Hurriyat Conference, was attended by representatives of Hurriyat (M), Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Jamaat e Islami and Dukhtaran e Millat, sources said.

However, no representative from Hurriyat (G) was able to make it to the venue of the meeting due to some unknown reason, the sources added.

According to sources, the representatives of various groups decided to frame a common programme for demanding the return of the body of parliament attack convict, Muhammad Afzal Guru, who was secretly executed at Delhi’s Tihar Jail on February 9.

“Various issues were discussed and it was decided that the common programme will stand on one point demand for return of Guru’s body, which will be announced soon. The parties have also decided to demand stoppage of spree of detentions, excesses and arrests of youth across the valley”, the sources said.

Without revealing names of those who participated in the meeting, the sources added that the meeting will continue tomorrow (Monday) in an effort to finalize the programme. (KNS)
