- Indian external affairs minister says ‘whole India wants to tell Pakistani premier in one voice that his and Pakistan’s dream (of making Kashmir its part) will never come true’
- Slams Pakistan for declaring Hizbul Mujahideen slain commander Burhan Wani a ‘martyr’
Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Saturday said Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif must know that “Kashmir can never become a part of Pakistan”.
“Whole India wants to tell Pakistani premier in one voice that his and Pakistan’s dream (of making Kashmir its part) will never come true,” Swaraj said during a press conference aired on Indian media.
The Indian minister also accused Pakistan of backing militants with the help of UN designated terrorists and notorious figures like Hafiz Saeed, in order to turn the valley into a living hell.
“The Pakistani PM says his prayers are with people of Kashmir. I must remind him that Pakistan has never prayed for the people of the valley but has given them pain in the form of terrorism,” said Swaraj.
She also condemned Nawaz Sharif’s condemnation of separatist commander Burhan Wani’s killing and asked him why he described Wani as a martyr despite knowing that he was a part of the ‘terrorist group’ Hizbul Mujahideen.
On Friday, a high-level meeting of the National Security Council chaired by Prime Minister Nawaz had declared Wani a ‘martyr’ and decided to highlight Indian atrocities in the Occupied Valley in the comity of nations at other forums.
