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 to, instead of getting divided and disintegrated; unite under the banner of Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” Hurriyat Conference (g) Secretary General 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 the enemies.”

Terming Pakistan as “vision of Allama Iqbal” and “dream of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah”, Shah said, “the country 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.”
“Pakistan’s unflinching support to Kashmiris on political, moral and diplomatic fronts is laudable and we hope the Islamic Republic will continue its support with same spirit and steadfastness. We’re proud of having a nation like Pakistan as our well-wisher,” Shah said.
