Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

HAMEED SHAHEEN RAWALPINDI —Sar­dar At­tique Ahmed Khan an ex­premier of AJK, now pres­i­dent Mus­lims Con­fer­ence, pay­ing rich­est tributes to the brav­ery of Pak­istan’s armed forces at all fronts, fac­ing ex­trem­ism to nat­u­ral calami­ties, said that se­cu­rity forces of none of 199 mem­ber states of UNO had ren­dered that much sac­ri­fices as by Pak­istan’s armed forces for world peace.
