In yet another attempt to tick off India, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday once again glorified Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani who was killed by the Indian security forces+ during an encounter last summer. Sharif also reiterated Pakistan's moral, political and diplomatic support to the militant separatist movement in Kashmir.
While emphatically claiming Pakistan's territorial right over Kashmir, Sharif asked the world to put the squeeze on India to "free" the Muslim majority state that has been the bone of contention between India and Pakistan for the last 70 years.
The remarks were made by Sharif during his address to the inaugural session of a two-day International Parliamentary Seminar on Kashmir in Islamabad, organised by Pakistan Institute of Parliamentary Services (PIPS), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan in collaboration with the Young Parliamentarians Forum of the National Assembly and government of Azad Jammu Kashmir (Pakistan-occupied Kashmir).
Referring to Burhan Wani as a "vibrant and charismatic leader", the Prime Minister said that his "martyrdom has become a rallying point for the freedom loving people of the territory (Kashmir)."
Wani was killed by the Indian security forces in July 2016 during an encounter. His killing triggered massive violence in Kashmir Valley that left around 90 people dead through the five months of unrest.Read More...
