UJC chief felicitates Nawaz Sharif
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, May 14: Chairman of the United Jehad Council (UJC) Syed Salahuddin has felicitated the PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif on his landmark victory in the recent polls in Pakistan.
“We express our sincere congratulations to Nawaz Sharif and his party for gaining majority in the general elections”, Salahuddin said this while addressing an extraordinary session of the Council on Tuesday. “While addressing the daunting challenges faced by the nation we hope that the PML-N chief would pay special attention towards the core issue of Kashmir that happens to be the bone of contention between India and Pakistan,” he said.
Highlighting the significance of Kashmir resolution he said, “The settlement of Kashmir dispute in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of Kashmiri people is inescapably linked to peace, prosperity and economic stability of Pakistan.”
He was of the view that putting Kashmir on the backburner and establishing cultural and trade ties with India would not only be detrimental for Pakistan but it would also damage the Kashmir cause.
“Over the past 65 years Kashmir has been a central issue between India and Pakistan but unfortunately the issue lost its centrality owing to the Pakistani ruler’s over-appeasing policies and their conciliatory approach towards India,” Salahuddin said. He expressed the optimism that Nawaz Sharif after taking over the reins of the country would not follow the footsteps of his predecessors.
He urged the PML-N chief that there was a dire need to revisit the Kashmir policy before entering into a dialogue with India. “While forging bilateral relations with India the government of Pakistani should take into account the sentiments of Kashmir who have rendered invaluable sacrifices over the past several years”, he maintained.
