srinagar, Jan 10: A senior Hurriyat leader who recently claimed to have adopted a pellet-blinded girl and asks people to support such victims here on Tuesday hosted a lavish Wazwan party for the leaders from the Hurriyat Conference (G) led by Syed Ali Geelani.
Sources privy to the party held at the Sanat Nagar residence of the Hurriyat leader said the dawat was attended by some of the most prominent leaders of the Hurriyat (G).
For the past many months, this leader was having strained relations with the Geelani faction of the Hurriyat. Sources said the leader was unnerved by the growing affinity between Geelani, his Hurriyat M counterpart Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and JKLF Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik.
But for the past few weeks, since his release from detention, the leader was trying to improve his relations with the Geelani camp. Sources said after some days of lobbying the Hurriyat leaders agreed to meet him over a "trami of wazwan".
Sources said on January 9, a marathon meeting was held at the residence of the host, wherein the meeting resolved that there was a dire need for Wazwan, to which the host agreed. Geelani, however, didn't attend the wazwan party or the meeting held previously.
Insiders said a special 7-course Wazwan was prepared for the guests. "Th
most delicious thing about his Wazwan was that it was served hot as per our likings," said one of the invitees.
"One who can host hot, steaming and yummy Wazwan in such hostile weather conditions can do anything and thus we appreciate his commitment towards the cause."
Sources said the guests told the host that they were happy with the party and that now he has a "good future in the separatist camps." "We will definitely support you in resolving all issues with the united Hurriyat leadership," the sources quoted the guests as having told the host.
The Hurriyat leaders appreciated their colleague for having kept his word to serve Wazwan when snowfall has affected all such activities in the snow-bound Valley.
The Hurriyat leaders while appreciating their colleague said: "One who can host hot, steaming and yummy Wazwan in such hostile weather conditions can do anything and thus we appreciate his commitment towards the cause."
Police sources said it was the first lavish party to have been thrown by any Hurriyat leader after the 2016 unrest in Kashmir.
If sources in Hurriyat are to be believed more parties are likely to be thrown in the coming days. The guests and the hosts were heard talking that Wazwan gives best taste in winters provided its "served hot and steaming." Meanwhile the Waza was also appreciated for preparing the specialties despite freezing conditions.
Despite repeated attempts the host could not be contacted for comments.
