Kashmir can never become part of Pakistan: Sushma


New Delhi—Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Saturday said 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 murder and asked him why he described Wani as a martyr despite knowing that he was a part of the ‘terrorist group’ Hizbul Mujahideen.
Attacking Pakistan’s rhetoric on the ongoing Kashmir crisis, Swaraj rebuked the country’s bid to gain mileage from the situation, saying, “country which used fighter planes and artillery against its own people has no right whatsoever to point a finger against our security forces.”
Nawaz Sharif, while addressing a public gathering on Friday after his party’s victory in Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections, said: “We are waiting for the day Kashmir becomes Pakistan.” “Their movement for freedom cannot be stopped and it will be successful. You are aware of how they are being beaten and killed. All our prayers are with them and we are waiting for the day Kashmir becomes Pakistan,” Nawaz had said.
