Thwart attempts of forces inimical to unique political identity of J&K: Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar : National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday asked people to thwart the attempts of forces who are inimical to the unique political identity of Jammu and Kashmir.

Exuding confidence, he said that the people will foil all such attempts by keeping the flame of unity and brotherhood alive in Jammu and Kashmir.

He said, “I see no way of achieving anything in J&K without a lasting unity between different sections of our society”, Farooq said while addressing a gathering at Naushaher in Srinagar during a condolence meeting on Wednesday.

“We have to stop seeing ourselves as Hindu Muslim, Shia- Suni, Bareli Deobandi… unity in diversity must be our creed to last for all time and under all circumstances, otherwise there is no end in sight to our common problems in the shape of poverty, unemployment, and under-development”, he added.

The former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir said that our mutual discord will make our descent into darkness. “Divided we cannot achieve anything, let alone get back our abridged constitutional and democratic rights”, he added.
