Syed Ali Shah Geelani, 71, favours a merger of Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan. He demands that Pakistan must be a party to any talks on Kashmir and must also include the representatives of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Geelani, who has been leading the separatist movement since1989, was also a member of the Muslim United Front earlier.

He says if Mountbatten’s guidelines on Kashmir are to be followed then India has no right over Kashmir.
