The meeting was presided over by Manzoor-ul-Haq. Hurriyet leaders strongly condemned the malicious campaign launched by India to defame the Hurriyet leadership. They said that the NIA was also threatening to re-open the old fake cases in which the courts had acquitted the Hurriyet leaders, adding that such cheap tactics could not frighten the Hurriyet leadership.

The Hurriyet leaders said that the NIA has conducted raids on the offices and residences of many Hurriyet leaders and subjected them to harassment.
