In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words...
We search for Him here and there,
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:
'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'

No Offence In Unfurling Pakistan's Flag: Hurriyat Conference
Date: 27 March 2015
A day after police booked woman separatist leader Asiya Andrabi for unfurling Pakistan's flag, the Hurriyat Conference said it is 'no offence' to unfurl a flag on Pakistan's national day and called for an immediate withdrawal of the case. It said 'if it is an offence to join in its celebrations' on Pakistan Day, New Delhi should also book Union Minister Gen V K Singh, who was chief guest in the celebrations at Pakistan High Commission. 'Registering FIR against Andrabi for unfurling flag on Pakistan day is surprising and unfortunate,' said Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar.
