Afzal Guru, Sarabjit Singh and Sanaullah Haq By Fahad Shah Two men on the death row in the two neighboring countries can be a silent war.

[Ed. Note: The following statement is a historical document regarding the struggle for the right of self-determination of Kashmiri people. Maqbool Butt, a prominent pro-independence leader of Kashmir, was hanged by India in Tihar Jail, Delhi, on February 11, 1984. He passed most of his life in the prisons of both India and Pakistan.] Call it a coincidence or tyranny of the conditions, I have to stand today in this special court under a special order to defend the charges which are baseless and false.
