Perils of 'Self-Determination'

Abdul Ghani Lone, the Hurriyat leader and chairman of the People's Conference, was assassinated in Srinagar on May 21, 2002 during a gathering commemorating the death anniversary of his friend, the Kashmiri leader, Mirwaiz Maulvi Farooq, also slain by assassins 12 years ago.
