While reacting over the prevailing situation in Pakistan after the arrest of Imran Khan, Farooq Abdullah said that it’s been a tragedy for Pakistan for a long time, unfortunately, they have a checkered history right from the time of independence.

“The first Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan was also assassinated. There is a constant history of assassinations. Prime Minister Zulfqar Ali Bhatto was also hanged.

While talking to reporters, Farooq Abdullah said, “We need a stable Pakistan which is essential for peace in the subcontinent. Now with the present situation that they are in, economically in very desperate condition. Also, recent floods in Balochistan have put that country in a miserable situation. I can’t tell you the condition of the people in Balochistan. What we see from the media, because I am not there, it is very vital that the country must stabilize itself.”

The most important thing is that I hope his life is saved. We would wish that country well. It’s our neighbour and we hope something better will come and the people of that nation will have a peaceful life.”
