Addressing a mammoth gathering of devotees at Baba Nagri Kangan, party president as per the official spokesperson has said, “Forces, as are inimical to the interests of the state, will use all possible means to influence the process of elections. However during the just-concluded elections to parliament we the people audaciously dispirited the resolve of such forces. We have won the first battle but the biggest battle is ahead of us, we should not let complacency overwhelm us. The state is facing a perilous situation in the wake of numerous attacks on its identity, and unity. But by not letting the demon of disunity divide us we can take such forces head-on.”

Extolling the role of Mian Altaf for his efforts towards making the party stronger Dr Farooq has said, “I am grateful to Mian Sahib for his endeavour in making the win of party’s parliamentary candidates possible. The role played by the Mian Sahib and the Gujjar community in the just concluded parliament elections is worth appreciation. I am sure that Mian sahib will continue to work with the same zeal. I take this opportunity to urge you to not be complacent; the need of the hour requires unity and hard work. We have a laborious task ahead of us, on one hand, we have to put the state back on the track on development and the other hand we have to protect the interests of the state.” And added, “In the coming days we all have to make the party’s candidates successful from all the seats of the state. I pray for the long life of Mian Bashir Ud Din Sahib. I am hopeful that his scholarly disposition and acquaintance with Islam will guide our steps. I am positively hopeful that the high-spirited Gujjar community under the leadership of Mian Sahib the momentum of Parliament elections will carry on in Assembly elections.”

On the occasion, Sajada Nisheen Dargha Baba Nizam Ud Din Kiyanwi (RA) Mian Bashir Ud Din highlighted the role of Sufis in shaping the Muslim world.
