All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Thursday expressed hope that the formation of the new government in Afghanistan will put an end to four decades of ceaseless conflict and uncertainty.
In a statement, APHC said that it understands that no two conflict regions are the same and the differences between Afghanistan and Kashmir are well-known, however, “we in Kashmir can surely empathise with the common people of the country who also have been living in a state of acute uncertainty for forty years”.
“Long term uncertainty takes its toll and we hope that people of Afghanistan will come out of it soon. We also hope that as the country begins the process of building its own future and realizing its aspirations all regional and international member countries will extend their support to it,” APHC said.
APHC also hoped that the new dispensation in Afghanistan is inclusive and broad based and bears in mind that Islam as a religion is unambiguous in advocating human equality and rights, economic fairness and religious tolerance as foundational values.
It also hoped that these values will be the guiding principles of the new dispensation both in letter and spirit, as well as keeping up with internationally accepted norms. APHC wished the citizens of Afghanistan peace and progress in their land and stability for the region.
