Hope Imran realises Jinnah’s dream of ‘Naya Pakistan’: Mirwaiz

Srinagar, Aug 18: Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Saturday hoped that the new government in Pakistan led by cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan will work towards realising the dream of Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s ‘naya’ Pakistan.

In a statement, Mirwaiz said he hoped that the new regime in Pakistan would continue to advocate strongly for the resolution of problems faced by Muslims across the globe and work hard for their redressal.

“Pakistan has always supported the people of Kashmir on political, moral and diplomatic fronts by acting as the mediator and voice of the oppressed people at international forums,” said the Mirwaiz.

“The new government under Prime Minister Imran Khan would continue to support the people’s struggle for realisation of Right to self-determination,” he said.

Meanwhile, a Hurriyat spokesman has expressed grief over the death of hundreds of people and damage caused by devastating floods in Kerala and empathized with the people there.
