SRINAGAR: Expressing deep concern over the growing “cross-border terrorist attacks” in Pakistan, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani on Tuesday accused the neighbouring countries of harbouring fighters to destabilise the country.
“It is very strange that Afghanistan is being used as a launching pad to accomplish their evil designs,” Geelani said in a statement issued here.
Referring to war-torn Arabian Peninsula and African countries, Geelani said western powers and Jewish lobbies have started blood game there and are desperate to endorse same bloodshed in Pakistan.
He expressed deep grief over the loss of human lives in a terrorist attack on border region Mahmond Agency saying, “Killing of innocents inflicts a deep pain and it is more disheartening to see that parties to the conflict belong to same faith. It is unbearable, we are in tears.”
Geelani appealed to leaders of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran to “put end to hostilities, sort out differences amicably and form a united front against the divisive forces”. “We hope this problem will be resolved in a diplomatic way,” he said. Hurriyat (G) chairman said Pakistan “is a backbone and a final resort for Muslim world” and being the only Muslim nuclear country “is a sore for anti-Muslims who are feeling perturbed and are trying to destabilise this country”.
