Hurriyat leaders talked to PM from my residence: Vedic
Delhi seminar on Kashmir

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 10: Leading Journalist Ved Partap Vedic on December 8 made a startling revelation during a seminar organized by a Kolkata-based NGO, Centre for Peace and Progress (CPP). Speaking at the seminar, Ved Pratap Vedic revealed that "Hurriyat Conference leaders used to talk to Prime Minister of India on phone from his house and those included Syed Ali Geelani as well".
Vedic, who had in the past triggered a fierce controversy by meeting Jamaat-u-Dawa Chief Hafiz Saeed in Pakistan, said: "Hurriyat leaders used to visit my house and from my phone used to talk to Prime Minister. Ask Prof Gani Bhat and Geelani".
Vedic, however, didn't name the Prime Minister with whom the Hurriyat leaders used to talk. He should have revealed the name of the Prime Minister to set the record straight and not create any controversy. His revelation has stunned everyone and for right reasons. After all, what he disclosed was a major revelation.
Prominent among those who participated in the seminar on "India, Pakistan and Jammu & Kashmir included former Pakistan Prime Minister Khursheed Kasuri, former Indian Vice-President Hamid Ansari, OP Shah, who runs the CPP, Congress leader Saif-ud-Din Soz, CPIM leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami, former Air-Vice Marshal Kapil Kak, former RAW chief AS Dulat, journalists Jyoti Malhotra and Aarti Tikoo Singh and Supreme Court lawyer Ashok Bhan.
Meanwhile, pro-Pakistan Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, has contested the claim of made by Vedic that "separatist leaders used to talk to India Prime Minister on phone from his house". "Such imaginary speculations are nothing but to malign the leadership and confuse the masses. It is ridiculous on part of this so-called journalist that he leveled these baseless allegations just to please his masters. We don't believe in covert activities. We are fighting for a just cause and whatever we do we do in broad daylight," Geelani was guoted as saying on Saturday. "No such communication has ever taken place," Geelani further reportedly said to clear his position.
Vedic needs to clear all the cobwebs of confusion so that the country knows what exactly was the truth? It is a very sensitive issue, as it concerns the national security.
