"In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,

Date: 28 June 2017
Pakistan on Tuesday described as 'completely unjustified' the US' designation of Hizbul Mujahideen leader Syed Salahuddin as a global terrorist and said it will continue its 'political, diplomatic and moral support for ... the Kashmiri people'. The Foreign Ministry said the 'indigenous struggle of Kashmiris' in Jammu and Kashmir 'remains legitimate. The designation of individuals supporting the Kashmiri right to self-determination as terrorists is completely unjustified'. A ministry spokesman made no reference by name to the Pakistan-based Salahuddin.
