Geelani concerned over Pak internal situation
Srinagar, Jan 15: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani has expressed serious concern over the prevailing internal situation in Pakistan. He urged the patriotic citizens of that country to demonstrate wisdom and maturity and not to be a part of any campaign that would weaken their nation.
“Pakistan is the prime target of many external forces and they are taking full advantage of its internal tension and disorder to realize their nefarious designs,” said Geelani in a statement issued from New Delhi.
“Though we have nothing to do with the Pakistan’s internal political situation, but we cannot remain insensitive to the violence, anarchy and lawlessness of that country. For whatever is happening in Pakistan has direct bearing on Kashmir issue and Kashmir’s internal situation,” he said, adding that New Delhi is taking advantage of Pakistan’s instability and weakness and thus trying to overpower the Kashmiris’ ongoing movement.
Geelani exhorted Pakistan rulers and politicians to settle their matters amicably without taking recourse to violent means and methods.
Geelani reiterated that everybody has a right to expression and is free to address gatherings and organize the processions but peace, welfare and stability of the state deserve the top priority. “Pakistan is a target and at present in a state of incursion from all vested powers. It is obligatory duty of every patriotic citizen to refrain from such acts which in turn may escalate the already deteriorating situation, a stable Pakistan stands a guarantee for the resolution of Kashmir dispute otherwise in absence of peace and tranquility in that country, the resolutions sought may be kept in abeyance,” he said.
