Yasin Malik's passport may be revoked

Yasin Malik

Malik and other Kashmiri separatist leaders are normally given limited validity passport.

A similar action is likely to be taken against moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq if the reports about his meeting with LeT founder and India's most wanted terror mastermind are found to be true.

Security agencies are also verifying reports suggesting that Mirwaiz had met Hafiz Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Sayeed Salahuddin secretly during his last visit to Pakistan.

Both Malik and Mirwaiz may be barred from visiting Pakistan again in future

Yesterday, responding to a question on Malik sharing the dais with the LeT founder, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said, "I will look into the case."

Congress spokesman Sandeep Dikshit urged the UPA government to look into the issue which was described as "very unfortunate" by Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari.

BJP today hit out at the government for allowing Malik to visit Pakistan and demanded confiscation of his passport.
