Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (APHC) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Thursday expressed hope that the formation of the new government in Kabul will put an end to four decades of ceaseless conflict and uncertainty.
“We are hopeful that after the unfolding of confusing and chaotic events in Afghanistan during the past month the formation of the new Government will put an end to four decades of ceaseless conflict and uncertainty”, APHC said in a statement on Thursday.
APHC said that it understands that no two conflict regions are the same and the differences between Afghanistan and Kashmir are well-known. It however said,” We in Kashmir can surely empathise with the common people of Afghanistan who also have been living in a state of acute uncertainty for forty years”.
Hurriyat said, the “long term uncertainty takes its toll and we hope that people of Afghanistan will come out of it soon. We also hope that as the country begins the process of building its own future and realizing its aspirations, all regional and international member countries will extend their support to it”.
APHC also expressed hope that the new dispensation in Afghanistan is inclusive and broad based and bears in mind that Islam as a religion is unambiguous in advocating human equality and rights, economic fairness and religious tolerance as foundational values.
