Islamabad: The moderate Kashmiri leaders who have held talks with the Indian government do not enjoy popular support of the Kashmiris and there is no importance of their talks at all. A leader of the Jama'at-e- Islami (JI) Liaquat Baloch stated this on Thursday while talking to AFP. He downplayed the importance of the talks between moderate Kashmir separatists led by Syed Ali Geelani, who met with the Indian deputy prime minister. 'There will be no result of such a dialogue as the group holding talks does not enjoy the support of the Kashmiri people,' the JI leader said.
