MUZAFFARABAD – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif shows teeth to Indian premier Narendra Modi and lambastes Indian ‘state terrorism’ in occupied Kashmir, PakistanTribe reported.
Nawaz Sharif was addressing to the Azad Kashmir Council on Wednesday when he tuned back to the longstanding stance of Pakistan over status of Kashmir yet again.
“India’s blame game on Pakistan for harboring terrorist is a baseless point. Pakistan is the victim of terrorism and our Kashmiri brethren are facing ‘state terrorism’ of Kashmir on the other side of Line of Control (LoC),” he said firmly in his pre-written speech to the Azad Kashmir Council.
Nawaz Sharif was visiting the capital of Azad Kashmir on the request of state’s premier Chaudhry Abdul Majeed.
Nawaz Sharif said further “We are trying to bring India on negotiation table over the issue of Kashmir by increasing pressure on her through intentional community. We will never give in the moral, political and diplomatic support to our Kashmiri brethren. India must leave the stubborn policy and speed up the process to make life easier for Kashmiris on both sides of LoC.”
Pakistani premier is scheduled to attend a summit of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) in Kathmandu – Nepal. He had requested Narendra Modi in a letter to hold a separate meeting on the sidelines of SAARC summit. But interestingly due to security protocols, Nawaz Sharif had refused to travel in Indian bullet proof vehicle during his stay for the summit.
Not to forget that even prior to elections last year, Nawaz Sharif had made relations with India a prime focus of his campaign speeches. He had always hoped for both nations to forget their past and work further to end poverty in Subcontinent. Nawaz Sharif has also attended the oath taking ceremony of the Indian premier Narendra Modi in New Delhi.
Nawaz Sharif had also written a special letter to Narendra Modi requesting him to hold separate meeting on the sidelines of SAARC summit.
