Pakistan's Leaders Vow to Defeat Terrorism, Say It Threatens Sovereignty, Development
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan Aug 14, 2005 — Pakistan celebrated national independence day Sunday as its leaders pledged to defeat terrorism, saying militancy and religious extremism were threatening both sovereignty and development.
At a ceremony marking the 58th anniversary of independence, President Gen. Pervez Musharraf blamed intolerance for hampering progress toward modernity."The only hurdle in Pakistan's development is extremism, narrow-mindedness and the imposing of one's own attitudes on others," Musharraf said in the eastern city of Lahore.
