MUZAFFARABAD: Jamaatud Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed on Thursday criticised the recent visit of Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz to India to attend the Heart of Asia Conference and said the visit had brought “disgrace to Pakistan and Kashmir”.
Speaking at a ‘Kashmir Conference’ here, he said sending the PM’s adviser to New Delhi was a wrong decision of the government.
The event was organised by Tehreek-i-Azadi-i-Kashmir, an offshoot of the JuD.
United Jihad Council (UJC) chairman Syed Salahuddin, Jamaat-i-Islami leader Liaquat Baloch and several other militant, political and religious leaders also spoke on the occasion.
Mr Saeed said his organisation could prepare a detailed briefing on the situation in India-held Kashmir for Mr Aziz which he could show to the world community.
“The adviser on foreign affairs should show images of the body of Majid Shaheed who was hit by a chemical weapon that India has been brazenly using in Kashmir in sheer violation of international laws,” he said.
He said global problems were compounding because governments across the world sometimes avoided raising voice over important issues due to compulsions. Asking other countries to play their role for the resolution of the Kashmir issue was justified, but Pakistan and Kashmiris would have to accomplish this task by themselves, he added.
Referring to India’s claim of surgical strikes across the LoC, he said it was a hoax, adding that in fact India was taught an “unforgettable lesson” by the freedom-fighters.
Regarding a recent statement of Indian home minister Rajnath Singh about Pakistan, the JuD leader said: “We take his statement as a declaration of war.”
In his speech, Mr Salahuddin rejected the Indian propaganda that “ISI was fighting in held Kashmir using names of Lashkar-i-Taiba, Jaish-i-Muhammad and Harkatul Mujahideen”.
He regretted that the leadership in Azad Jammu and Kashmir could not make the world realise that India had oppressed 6.5 million people in held Kashmir.
