By GVL Narasimha Rao

THE latest twist in the Kashmir story which has been helped by Pakistan, the seditious groups in Kashmir and a section of interlocutors in India is the letter from the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) to chairman of ‘moderate’ faction of Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
