Jammu: The Central government must appoint
academicians and outstanding personalities without political
affiliation as "interlocutors" to start dialogue process with
different groups in Jammu and Kashmir, a Muslim group said

Such interlocutors would be able to find the aspirations
of different ethnic, religion and regional groups of the state
which would enable them to prepare a fair report to help the
Central government to resolve Kashmir crisis, Chairman of
Anjuman Minhge Rasool (AMR) Maulana Syed Athar Dehlavi told
reporters here.

In reply to a question, he said Army was playing a
commendable role in defending the borders but Armed Forces
Special Powers Act and Disturbed Areas Act needs to be
reviewed in the state to avoid violation of human rights.

Dehlavi said the Centre and state government should also
start negotiations with separatist and militant groups.
He asked leaders from National Conference (NC) and Sangh
Parivar not to make provocative statements in the interest of
peace and stability in the state and the country.
On Babri Masjid issue, Dehlavi said he favoured talks
with the stake-holders without inclusion of RSS and VHP to
arrive at an amicable solution outside the court.
