President of the AJ&K Masood Khan and Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan while felicitating the nation on the Eid-ul-Fitr, have lauded the sacrifices of Kashmiri people for the achievement of their just cause — the right to self determination in accordance with United Nations resolutions. In their separate messages, they said “On the day of Eid, we cannot forget those who, for the sake of freedom have been facing Indian aggression, atrocities and brutalities since 1947 in general and 1989 particular.
“I pray to Allah Almighty to bless the Kashmiri people with success at every front and they celebrate the next festival in free atmosphere, said the President. The whole Pakistani and Kashmiri nation salutes their spirit,” he added. Masood Khan lauded the services of Pakistan Army, police, Frontier Constabulary and other law enforcement agencies whose jawans (personnel) are working day and night for the defence of the country.
The prime minister said, “We, today, on this auspicious occasion, pledge not to become part of any kind of negative activity and will continue to work for the progress and prosperity of the country and nation.” “We should also pledge that we will promote among us the teachings of tolerance, harmony, forgiveness, love and affection, patience and generosity.
It is only possible when we lead a life based on the golden principles of Islam and control the negative attitudes of jealousy and hatred.
This is the right path, by following which we can achieve success in this world and hereafter,” he maintained.
The Information Minister of AJK said that AJK Government will continue her efforts to bring positive change in the AJK by spending huge developmental budget next fiscal year. He emphasised on the people to enjoy Eid with their relatives.
