JEDDAH, 1-September 23 – Today, we gather to solemnly commemorate the second death anniversary of the remarkable Kashmiri leader, Syed Ali Gilani. As we remember his life and legacy, we are reminded of his unwavering commitment to justice and self-determination for the oppressed people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Syed Ali Gilani was an embodiment of resilience and perseverance, tirelessly advocating for the rights of Kashmiris. His sacrifices and unwavering determination continue to inspire us all. Today, we honor the sacrifices made by the brave Kashmiri people and stand in solidarity with them.
We must reflect on the ongoing atrocities and violations perpetrated against the Kashmiri population and unequivocally denounce the illegal occupation in Jammu and Kashmir. The Government of Pakistan reiterates its unwavering commitment to supporting the struggle of the Kashmiri people. We call upon the international community to play their part in resolving the longstanding Kashmir dispute in accordance with the United Nations resolutions. It is essential that the Kashmiri people are granted their fundamental right to self-determination.
The inspiring words of Syed Ali Gilani, “Hum Pakistani Hain, Pakistan Hamara Hay” (We are Pakistanis, and Pakistan is ours), resonate deeply within our hearts and minds. They reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the people of Pakistan and the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Let us join hands to stand by our Kashmiri brothers and sisters and advocate for their rightful aspirations. Together, we can work towards a future where the Kashmiri people can determine their destiny and live in peace and harmony.
On this somber occasion, we remember Syed Ali Gilani with utmost reverence and pray that Allah blesses his soul. May his legacy continue to provide courage and strength to the people of Jammu and Kashmir in their quest for freedom and self-determination?
Pakistan Zindabad! Kashmir Banega Pakistan!
