In that regard our stand related to JKFA is same as it was previously .We oppose certain things in JKFA and want them to be changed,” Bashir Malik said.
Regarding Zamir Thakur being part of NIFF event he said , ” I have also seen those photographed and it gives the impression that deal has been reached and everything is normal. But the fact is that we have knowledge of the event and how Thakur was part of that function”.
“We will confirm with the NIFF members who were present there about the situation and how this happened . We have a meeting shortly and in that this issue will be taken up,” he added.
