Srinagar: A constituent of the moderate
Hurriyat Conference, Itehad-ul-Muslimeen, today refuted media
reports that it has walked out of the amalgam, terming these
as "baseless and unfounded".
"We continue to be part and parcel of the Hurriyat and
will continue to be so in future. Reports suggesting that we
have parted ways are baseless and unfounded," Itehad president
Masroor Abbas Ansari told PTI.
Masroor is representing Itehad-ul-Muslimeen in the
Hurriyat as an executive member for the past two years.
"Vested interests want to weaken the Hurriyat and
divide the people on sectarian grounds. But, people are mature
enough and politically conscious to foil their nefarious
designs," Masroor said.
