New Delhi: On a day when Pakistani leaders raked up the Kashmir issue once again, Indian leadership replied strongly. Union Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region Jitendra Singh said, “We will free Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, free Gilgit-Baltistan from Pakistan’s occupation and make them part of Indian Republic to bring Jammu and Kashmir in its original form.”
Pakistan has been fueling separatist sentiments in Kashmir and sending terrorists to India for decades. The country, however, keeps blaming India for the Kashmir issue and also accuses the latter of violating cease-fire violations. Withought giving any indication of being genuinely interested in solving conflicts via talks, the Islamic country continues to give token offer of talks to India and at the same time blames the latter of not being serious.
Celebrating 78th Pakistan Day on Thursday, Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain attacked India for “irresponsible behaviour” and blamed the latter of “constantly” violating ceasefire agreement on the Line of Control, according to Pakistan-based Geo News. “Pakistan will continue to extend moral and political support to our Kashmiri brethren,” Hussain said and immediately followed it up with the usual offer of talks, saying his country is ready to have dialogues if India shows “seriousness” in this regard.
On Thursday, it was not just Hussain who spoke against India. Pakistan’s envoy to India, Abdul Basit didn’t forget to raise the Kashmir issue either. Unsurprisingly, both spoke in the same tone. While showing his strong support to Kashmiri separatist sympathisers, Basit was shown saying by Times Now, “Struggle for freedom of Kashmiri people will one day succeed by the grace of god,” he was quoted to have said by the channel.”
