Currently Turkey and Pakistan both are facing same challenge of terrorism. Both countries should cooperate with each other to defeat the terrorist. Current emerging situation in Middle East put the bad impact on Turkey. Every country has its own perception regarding terrorism; all countries should unite together on one agenda to defeat terrorism. All countries should stop interference in internal matters of other countries because such acts are promoting terrorism. International media should stop immediately blaming Muslims. World must realize that Pakistan itself is a victim of terrorism and borne huge human and financial losses.”
Syed Yousuf Naseem (Hurriyet Leader):
“In occupied Kashmir, Indian army’s atrocious and brutal activities are clear violation of international human rights. Indian army is using its shameful tactics and power to press the voice of those Kashmiri people who want freedom .In Occupied Kashmir there is no religious independence to the citizens and Indian troops did not allow them to join congregational Eid prayers. We are confident that a day will come when Kashmiris will get the freedom. Kashmir issue is an old dispute of the subcontinent which should be solved according to the resolutions of UN. Kashmiris have old and strengthened relationship with Pakistan which no one can break. Certainty, a day will come when Kashmiris will get its right of self-determination from India.”
