SRINAGAR: National Conference (NC) additional general secretary Sheikh Mustafa Kamaal on Monday lamented that forces inimical to India’s diversity of religion, region, language, colour, caste and creed are receiving encouragement by the “establishment at the national level”, saying this is jeopardising our unity and integrity as a nation.
“India’s strength is its pluralistic ethos and its diversity of culture and religion,” Kamal said while speaking at the annual day function of ‘Dr Gafoor Institute of Para-Medical Sciences’ at Akhnoor, Jammu.
“Our constitution stands guarantee to equal rights and opportunities and fair and just treatments to all citizens. Giving covert and overt support to sectarian forces that are hell bent upon dividing people is against the very spirit of our constitution which will lead to anarchy,” he said and exhorted upon people to thwart the nefarious designs of elements inimical to peace and tranquillity.
The NC leader expressed hope that “New Delhi will take steps to end the three-decade-old unrest and militancy in J&K by taking effective steps of engaging all stakeholders including our neighbour in a sincere and meaningful dialogue as also restoring J&K constitutional position to its pristine glory”.
Kamaal in his address said that paramedical sciences is the backbone of the medical profession and the paramedics and medical doctors have a vital link with each other especially in the healthcare delivery in health institutions. He was speaking at the annual day function of ‘Dr Gafoor Institute of Para-Medical Sciences’ at Akhnoor.
Kamaal praised and encouraged student, staff and management of the institute and wished them success in life and expressed hope that Dr Gafoor Ahmad chairman; Dr Fazzan Ahmad and Farhan Ahmad, directors; will scale newer heights of excellence.
