MFN status to India: Slogans shouted against Pakistan

Jamaat-e-Islami and activists of banned groups on Friday demonstrated in the capital city of Azad Kashmir against Pakistan government’s decision to take steps to improve trade with India.
Last month, the federal cabinet said it approved a proposal giving India the status of the most favoured nation in a move towards normalising trade relations between the two neighbours.
Besides activists of Jamaat-e-Islami, members of banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba gathered in the main square in Muzaffarabad city. Protesters shouted slogans against the Pakistani government and were joined by Pakistan Muslim League-N, an AFP reporter said.
“We will never accept this decision,” Maulana Abdul Aziz Alvi, local chief of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa told the gathering. His organisation is blacklisted as a terror group by the United Nations and considered a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Later, the protesters blocked the main road passing through Muzaffarabad city centre by setting tyres on fire.

    It would be better for all the three parties – Pakistan, India and Kashmiris – if the Pak-India trade and regional normalization process is bracketed with the settlement of the political issue of Jammu and Kashmir. It is difficult to jump over the 63-year long burning hell to reside in paradize. It is also true that under the pressure of globalization sooner or later a robust regional commercial South Asia has had to emerge. Whatever the constraints, Pakistan, India and Kashmiris would have to seek a solution to Kashmir dispute to hail back peace.
