Hurriyat Conference (g) chairperson Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday termed Pakistan as “centre of hope” of Muslim Ummah and said that the country was a great blessing for Muslims.
In a statement issued here, while greeting the Pakistan government, Pakistan Army and the people of Pakistan on the Pakistan Resolution Day, Hurriyat patriarch said that the country has a political importance in the Muslim world and this country is centre of hope not only for the sub-continent but for the whole Muslim Ummah.
Geelani said that unparalleled sacrifices were presented for its creation & Pakistan has proven to be a great blessing for the Muslims and “we should thank Almighty Allah for that”.
He said that the “blessing day” of 23 March is such an important day when a resolution was passed for creation of separate nation for the Muslims some 77 years back & it is a dream realized when forces like “Sangh Pariwar” were opposing and spreading their venomous dogma against its creation.
“It was the time when this kind of thinking was considered as impossible and the fanatic communal forces were harshly opposing this move but the determination of the leadership succeeded in creation of a paradise like resort for those aspiring to see their dream come true,” said Geelani, according to the statement.
He said the creation of Pakistan has changed the discourse of history. “This is the only Muslim country in the world which openly supports the right to self-determination of Kashmiris and helps them on political, diplomatic and moral levels.”
Hailing Pakistan for its unflinching support to Kashmir cause, Syed Ali Geelani said that Pakistan has been established on ideology instead of geography and every Pakistani should realize their duty to safeguard its fundamentals and ideology.
