The rally was organised to show solidarity with the family of a teenager killed in police firing last week.

All the leaders called for a 'united stand' on the Kashmir issue saying the 'pro-freedom people' have a similar stand on the Indian occupation and elections.

"We may be separate but we have a unity of thought," Geelani said.
