Hurriyat Conference (M) Monday congratulated and greeted the people and the government of Pakistan on the eve of 70th Independence Day of Pakistan.
The spokesman also convened best wishes to them.
According to the statement issued here, the Hurriyat (M) spokesman stated that the country has always supported the Kashmiri struggle, on moral, political and diplomatic fronts and always backed the people of Jammu and Kashmir in achieving their goal of right to self determination.
“Pakistan’s constant support to the people of Kashmir and their just struggle has been a source of strength for them and today the entire Kashmiri nation besides congratulating the country is also praying for its security, prosperity and progress on all fronts,” spokesman said.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) condemned the government action of once again imposing curfew in downtown Srinagar and turning the entire area into ‘a military fortress’.
“Downtown people are made to suffer on a regular basis as the imposition of curfew besides causing hardships to the people is also resulting in huge losses to the business community as the area is considered as the oldest economical hub of Kashmir,” spokesman said, adding that every day restrictions in downtown is ‘a ploy’ to weaken economy of traders and other businessmen.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) expressed concern over the health of ailing resistance leader Syed Ali Geelani and prayed to Almighty for his speedy recovery.
