Hurriyat faction to pursue unification efforts

SRINAGAR, AUG. 7. The moderate faction of the Hurriyat Conference today said that efforts for ``reunification'' would continue under its caretaker Chairman, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, despite the disbanding of the `Itehadi force'.

The executive committee of the Hurriyat Conference met here with the Mirwaiz, the founding Chairman, in the Chair to review the situation arising out of the disbanding of the Itehadi (unity) force, a task group working to unite the rival factions, last week, a Hurriyat spokesman said.

He said the executive, which was scheduled to elect the new chairman following Moulana Mohammad Abbas Ansari's resignation last month, decided that the Mirwaiz would continue as caretaker chairman as well as continue his efforts to forge unity in the separatist ranks.

``The amalgam appeals to all like-minded parties and individuals for cooperation in the conglomerates' endeavour to arrive on a unified platform at this crucial juncture of the movement,'' he said.
