Srinagar: Hurriyat (m) chairperson Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who continues to be under house arrest, Thursday greeted the people of Pakistan on the occasion of Pakistan day and prayed for stability and prosperity of the country.

Mirwaiz Umar with Pak High Commissioner Abdul Basit in New Delhi on Monday.

In a statement issued here, Mirwaiz said the creation of Pakistan was an assertion of the political and religious identity of the Muslims of the subcontinent, who had greatly suffered at the hands of the British colonial rule and had to make huge sacrifices for their independence.

“It is incumbent upon the Government of Pakistan and its people to utilise their resources and work towards building a strong, peaceful egalitarian, tolerant and progressive nation as was the dream of Quaid-e-Azam for the nation.
