Geelani felicitates people of Pakistan on Aug 14
Srinagar, Aug 13: The Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani has felicitated the people of Pakistan on the eve of August 14, praying for its (Pakistan’s) safety, stability and progress.
“Pakistan is passing through the most difficult phase of its history and at this crucial juncture it is imperative for its people to demonstrate courage and wisdom and be prepared to safeguard country’s geographical and ideological borders,” said Geelani, according to Hurriyat statement.
Geelani said Pakistan had been from day one supporting the Kashmiris’ right of self-determination and played vital role in taking the Kashmir issue to the international forums. “At the time when Pakistan is besieged by the international conspiracies and there is war like situation on its borders, it is the duty of its people to rise above their mutual differences and demonstrate unity in their ranks to confront all the challenges with firm determination,” he said, adding besides safeguarding the borders of their country, the people of Pakistan were also required to safeguard its ideological borders for which it came into existence.
Concerned over the internal conditions of Pakistan, the Hurriyat chairman said it was the result of the ‘faulty policies and wrong initiatives’ of its former rulers. “They were warned not to use force against their own people and settle all the matters through negotiations. But they never paid any heed to these words and tried to resolve every problem by the dent of gun,” he said, appealing to the people of Pakistan to demonstrate farsighted at this crucial juncture and save their country from all conspiracies.
Repeating his call for shutdown on August 15, Geelani urged the people make successful.
