SRINAGAR: Felicitating Pakistan on the eve of its national day, the incarcerated Chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Shabir Ahmed Shah, on Sunday said the Pakistan Resolution 1940 “is a source of inspiration and guideline for the oppressed people of Kashmir”.
In a statement issued here, Shah felicitated the government of Pakistan, its people, civil society, political, social, religious, and military leadership on ‘Pakistan Day’ and expressed hope that the country “will move forward keeping in view its responsibility of uniting the Muslim Ummah”.
Shah said Pakistan’s being a nuclear power has resulted in hatching of many conspiracies against the country. “This country fell victim to many internal and external conspiracies of which the ‘Fall of Dhaka’ was an open example. It’s imperative upon Muslim nations not to get divided but unite under the banner of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” he said.
Terming Pakistan as “hope for the Muslim world”, Shah said, “We believe a strong Pakistan can play a crucial role in bringing peace in South Asia. Millions of people have sacrificed their lives for achieving this nation. Now, the country has to rise to expose its enemies. Muslim countries of the world are duty-bound to secure the interests of Pakistan keeping in view its centrality among the Muslim nations.”
“Pakistan is a vision of Allama Iqbal and a dream of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. This nation always raised voice in favour of oppressed and subjugated Muslims across the world and the undeterred role it played with regard to Kashmiris’ fight for self-determination is hidden from none,” Shah said.
Shah said Pakistan’s “unflinching” support to Kashmiris on political, moral and diplomatic fronts is laudable and “we hope the Islamic Republic will continue to support us with same spirit and steadfastness. We’re proud of having a nation like Pakistan as our well-wisher,” Shah said.
