Neela Butt: Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan, supreme head of Muslim conference has said his party will not compromise on its stance on Kashmir's annexation to Pakistan. He said this while addressing a public meeting held here Wednesday in connection with Youm-e-Neela Butt. He alleged some elements are raising slogans of independent Kashmir for mental luxury. The slogan being raised for autonomous Kashmir may lead to division of Kashmir rather than its independence. He reiterated President General Pervez Musharraf evolved Kashmir policy as per the aspirations of the people of Kashmir. It is imperative that the decisions are taken in line with ground realities. He went on to say Muslim conference is not sheer name of a party but it is a movement and its workers are working voluntarily on political front for the security and defence of Pakistan. Muslim Conference leader Sardar Farooq Sikandar hoped Muslim conference will remain united under the leadership of Sardar Attique. Naseeb Ullah Gardezi, president Punjab Muslim conference said that we are very lucky people the man who laid foundation for freedom movement of Kashmir is amongst us today. Speaker assembly Shah Ghulam Qadir said Muslim conference emerged victorious in the elections due to the hectic efforts made by Sardar Attique. The Muslim conference is working to complete Kashmir movement. Muslim conference leaders including Syed Ghulam Raza Naqvi, Yusuf Naseem and Sardar Bahadar Khan also spoke on the occasion.
