SRINAGAR (AFP) - Police in Kashmir said they had detained on Wednesday the organiser of a seminar that was to be addressed by phone by top Mujahideen from Pakistan. Ahsan Untoo, the head of Human Rights Forum, a local rights group, was detained in a raid on a hotel an hour before the start of the event in Srinagar. Senior Kashmiri leader Javed Mir was also taken to a nearby police station. We have detained Untoo and Mir. We will not allow the seminar to take place, a police officer told AFP on condition of anonymity. The seminar was to discuss the role of pro-freedom leaders vis-a-vis the Kashmir issue and all separatist leaders in Kashmir had agreed to participate. Untoo had said that Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the head of Jamaatud Dawa widely viewed as a front for banned group Lashkar-e-Taiba, would address the seminar. Syed Salahudin, the head of Hizbul Mujahedin, which favours Kashmirs accession to Pakistan, was also set to make an address by phone. The former head of Pakistans main spy agency, Inter-Service Intelligence, was also to participate remotely. Kashmir is in the grip of a two-decade old struggle against Indian rule that has so far left more than 47,000 people dead according to the official count.
