Farooq Abdullah breaks down describing Kashmir situation

New Delhi: “We are going through terrible turmoil,” said National Conference (NC) patron Farooq Abdullah who turned emotional and broke into tears on Wednesday while describing the current situation of Kashmir.

Speaking at an event in memory of former Union Minister and socialist George Fernandes, Farooq said, “We are going through terrible turmoil. I see my nation die, it hurts me.”

He added, “I don’t know how we will pull out our young generation from this turmoil.”

In reference to Pakistan, he said, “Let us pray that our neighbour understands that they are not going to get any territory.”

He urged both the countries to respect 2003 ceasefire agreement in order to ensure peace as the continuous violence is causing huge trouble to the people residing on both sides of the border.
