“Issues outline measures to help parties move forward”
FK WEB DESK
Srinagar, March 09: The Muslim Conference (MC) president Prof. Abdul Gani Bhat while speaking to
huge gathering of people at Handwara has emphasized that excesses with negativity in history can be
neutralized effectively with collective decipline, wisdom and large-heartedness. Weakness is no sin–– no

situation to resolve the dispute on Kashmir in the interests of stability in South Asia.
India and Pakistan as responsible nuclear states owe a duty to millions in the region who seek peace to
rid them the ghosts of uncertainty and instability. The president said Muslim Conference was actually

Jammu and Kashmir.
A. Release the prisoners.
B. Withdrawal of cases against the young men particularly the teenagers.
C. Summoning people to Army camps be given a relook.
D. Men with arms should not be allowed to enter into educational institutions
E. Kashmiris’ detained outside the state in different jails should under no circumstances be subject
