The moderate separatists have already had their websites for some years. The Hurriyat website exists for long time but is not upgraded on time , Sajjad Lone of the People’s Conference was the first and only separtist who had put his road map to settle kashmir dispute titled vision document on the internet .its the only website from the separtst camp to have road map access to all the people.
