Farooq Abdullah says Hurriyat has received funds from govt

National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah on Monday said "Hurriyat has received funds from the central government" and it has been mentioned in the book of AS Dulat who was former RAW (Research & Analysis Wing) chief.

Abdullah said that he would not like to disclose the names of those who had funded to Hurriyat leaders, but the nation is bearing consequences.

He said terrorism will not end until way for talks between India and Pakistan does not open. 

A few days back, Abdullah had suggested third party mediation to resolve the Kashmir issue, saying India should take the help of "friends" and that dialogue was the only solution.

The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir had also asked, "Till what time should we wait?" and wondered how many more wars will India and Pakistan fight.

"The way out is through dialogue. Use your friends... Use them for dialogue to resolve the issue," he had told reporters.

The BJP, Congress and Shiv Sena had condemned Abdullah's suggestion of third party mediation to resolve the Kashmir issue.
