It seems like Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is not worried about the people in Balochistan and is more focused on India’s Kashmir. He on Tuesday “dedicated” Eid-al-Azha for the sacrifices of Kashmiris.
He further said that Pakistan will continue to do the same until the Kashmir issue is resolved.
“We cannot ignore sacrifices of Kashmiris. They will succeed through their sacrifices. We dedicate this Eid to the supreme sacrifices of Kashmiri people and we will continue doing so till the Kashmir issue is not resolved according to their (Kashmiri people) wishes,” the Prime Minister said in his message on the occasion of Eid-ul Azha.
He narrated that Kashmiris have given their third generation in their struggle to attain “freedom from India.” “They are struggling for their right to self- determination and facing Indian atrocities. Their voice cannot be suppressed through force,” he said.
Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain also gave message on this occasion; said Pakistan must remember “our Kashmiri brothers and sisters affected by terrorism”.
“During this hour of need we must support the Kashmiri people. They are facing the worst atrocities to get their right to self-determination. Time is not far away when the Kashmiri people will get dividend of their supreme struggle. They will soon celebrate such festivals in free land,” the President said.
Ironically, a terrorist (mastermind behind Mumbai attack) and Jammat-ud-Dawah supremo Hafiz Saeed prayed for the “success of Kashmiris fighting against Indian forces.”
He also asked the Pakistan government to take stand on the same and “help Kashmiris get freedom.”
Pakistan itself supports cross border terrorism, India has accused Pakistan for the same but it seems like Pakistan is playing Kashmir card to divert the attention – Pakistan is trying to internationalise Kashmir issue.
Earlier, Sharif in UN appealed to check into the “atrocities” committed by Indian security forces, protection of fundamental rights of the Kashmiris, and a fair enquiry into the killing of Burhan Wani.
