NEW DELHI  - To foil "Muzaffarabad Challo" programme chalked out by Kashmiris to be launched today (Monday), the security forces put under house arrest programme leaders including APHC Chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq in Srinagar on Sunday. Leaders of Kashmiri parties, religious, traders and fruit growers prepared the 'Muzaffarabad Challo' programme to counter the economic blockade of the valley by Hindu outfits of Jammu region. Meanwhile, TV channels reported that Mehbooba Mufti, President of Peoples Democratic Party has announced to join the march towards Muzaffarabad on Monday. She said if trade can be done through Wagah then why not through Line of Control (LoC) to Muzaffarabad. Media reports quoting Mirwaiz said police has sealed his house at Nigeen and Mirwaiz Manzil's residence at Rajouri Kadal where a meeting of the coordination committee was going on to finalising the 'Muzaffarabad Challo' programme.  He announced to continue the programme despite the restrictions. The authorities have already put Syed Ali Shah Geelani under house arrest for the last six days. The decision to cross LoC was announced in a press conference by Syed Ali Geelani in Srinagar. Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Shaikh Abdul Aziz, Nayeem Ahmad Khan and Mian Abdul Qayyum were also present on the occasion. These leaders said the prevalent situation of occupied Kashmir resulting from the economic and trade blockage by the Hindu fanatics had made it imperative that the Line of Control be made irrelevant and alternative trade routes be explored. Geelani said the Kashmiri traders would ply their goods-laden trucks to Muzaffarabad on this day. Indian Home Minister appealed for calm Sunday in Occupied Kashmir, gripped by the worst religious tensions in decades. "There should not be a regional divide or a communal divide," said Home Minister Shivraj Patil in Kashmir after weekend meetings with political and religious leaders in the Himalayan region. "This is the desire of all the people of Kashmir and of the country. We request everybody to keep the peace." Tensions flared in June when the state government said it was transferring land in the disputed area to Hindu yatrees, sparking violent protests by Muslims against "Hindu colonisation" that left at least six people dead. But after the government backed off from the plan, protesters in the state's Hindu-dominated Jammu region took to the streets in demonstrations that saw three Hindus killed in the past week. Hindu hardliners have also attacked Muslims and blocked a 300-kilometre highway - the sole link between the Kashmir valley and other parts of India - preventing vital supplies from reaching or leaving Muslim areas. Patil said officials would make sure traffic kept moving and compensate the angry fruit growers - who have threatened to cross the border to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and sell their produce there. "We are telling them not to worry, not to take other routes. That will not be right for us and it will not be right for you," said Patil. "The fruit growers will not be allowed to face losses. The government will do everything it can." The home minister was vague on what would happen on the land transfer that first sparked the tension. "We have to deal with it in a way that won't have a negative effect on Jammu or Kashmir," said Patil. A prominent Kashmiri leader, on a hunger strike since Tuesday against the attacks on Muslims and the economic blockade, called off his fast after the meeting and after receiving a message from India's prime minister. "The government will take all steps to ensure safety of all its citizens," said the message from Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Yasin Malik, who was hospitalised Thursday after his health deteriorated.
