Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat leader Syed
Ali Shah Geelani on Wednesday virtually ruled out any move for unity
with the moderate faction of the amalgam.
The Hurriyat hawk said those who think that the unity
of the two Hurriyat Conference factions will put pressure on
India to solve the Kashmir issue, are mistaken.

"For 10 years, we were together and India was not
impressed," he said addressing a seminar organised by his
Hurriyat faction here.
Geelani also demanded that the United Nations
constitute a tribunal to look into incidents in Jammu and
Kashmir over the past 63 years.

He lashed out at the ruling National Conference (NC)
accusing it of being party to "oppression".
