United we stand

Saima Javaid Khan

Only one month back all of us had joyously celebrated the Imamat Day in Hunza valley and the air was filled with happiness, joy, unity and tranquility. Our land has always been blessed with peace and harmony and people dwelling here are in no way familiar to bloodshed or killings.

My peaceful land, my home – Hunza Valley, known globally for its serenity, saw the worst day of its history on 11th August 2011 and the incident filled eyes of every individual with tears. The people here have never seen such massacres and we, not even in our wildest dreams, had imagined such kind of injustice being done to innocent people and fill the quietness of our heaven with the shooting of guns.

Our piece of land, even though small, is an example for the whole nation in every aspect of life and by no means shall we allow external or internal forces to shatter our hallmark.

We have always stood united and will remain intact in future as well and bring down those who run their conspiracies to bring instability in our nation.

W strongly condemn the killings of the two innocent souls who were peacefully protesting for their rights. May their souls rest in eternal peace!
