I fully subscribe to the initiative by Baltit Rural Support Organisation. It is my strong conviction that Hunza’s future lies in staying united. We can ill afford to divide ourselves in the name of political parties and factions. We have lived as one family, and turn to our leader for guidance, both in our worldly as well as spiritual matters. Then how can we even think of drawing lines among ourselves?
Let us stay united, devise a mechanism to bring about honest, selfless, capable and committed leadership with proven record of success in life. This is possible; one only needs to give it a chance. The author of the initiative has asked for ten years for the results to be seen; I am optimistic about positive results even in a shorter time span.
I urge the patriotic and intelligent peoplpe of entire Hunza to pay heed to this appeal, come together and chart a way to tailor a system that suits YOU and not those who sit on the other side of Himalayas and Karakurams and want to play with our destiny.
The success of this initiative is in its inclusiveness. The support to this initiave must, therefore, come even from those who are currently part of the present political system. Come, join and lead this initiave. It is for you, because you have the capability to lead!!!!
