Srinagar:  Hurriyat leaders, who accuse the Indian government of thwarting the process of resolving Kashmir issue, are apparently more concerned about their own security than the cause of the people, WikiLeaks cables have revealed.

The revelations have been made quoting the US cable, titled ‘Jammu and Kashmir: Pakistan-based Terrorism Threat Casts Shadow on Separatist Talks with Government of India’, by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks.

According to the documents, Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and some other leaders wanted Indian or Pakistan government to take guarantee of their life before they ink any final deal on Kashmir.

The Hurriyat leaders are of the view that they may face life threat from terrorist outfits like Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hizbul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammad among others, given no less than a separate Kashmir is acceptable to these groups.

It is worth mentioning that Hurriyat leaders had started dialogues with India under the aegis of ‘Quiet Diplomacy’, which lost momentum after attack on one of its leaders, Fazal Haq Qureshi.

Earlier on January 22, 2007, former United States Ambassador to India David Campbell Mulford had also said that terrorists may attack Mirwaiz.
