Struggle for restoration of IIOJK people’s rights not confined to any region, religion: Farooq



In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference President, Farooq Abdullah, has said that the ongoing struggle for the restoration of rights of the people of the territory is not associated with any particular religion, and region.

Addressing public and workers delegations who called on him at his residence in Srinagar, Farooq Abdullah said “we are fighting forces who are trying to break the pluralistic culture of our region”.

He said, we can fight these challenges if we all do our bit. He said, these forces have long been contriving to divide us on the basis of region and religion and our disunity serves their purpose. There is no way we can have our rights back without a lasting unity between different sections of our society, he said.

“Unity in diversity must be our creed to last for all times and under all circumstances, otherwise there is no end in sight to our common problems in the shape of unemployment, inflation, development deficit, drug addiction, sky rocketing tariffs. There is no way all this can change unless we join our efforts,” he added.—KMS
