Srinagar: A top Kashmiri leader on Tuesday warned of an uprising in Azad Kashmir if Pakistan and India ignored Kashmiri interests in the ongoing talks. Yasin Malik, chairman of the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), which wants the Himalayan territory to be independent of both Islamabad and Delhi, did not say whether the uprising would be violent. 'If Kashmiris are not involved in talks as a basic party, the JKLF will launch intifada in both parts of Kashmir,' Mr Malik said. 'To get something out of these talks it is imperative to involve Kashmiris,' Yasin Malik said.
