Islamabad, January 23, 2013 (PPI-OT): Chairman of the Special Committee of the Parliament on Kashmir Maulana Fazlur Rahman has said that Pakistanis had taken care of their independence for the last 65 years and ‘Inshallah’ do the same in future as well. The Indian leaders should stop threatening Pakistan and our offer to resolve the matters peacefully should not be taken as a weakness.
The Chairman Kashmir Committee observed that he repeatedly underscored the importance of the Kashmir issue and stressed to resolve it, because if it was not resolved all other steps for peace in the sub-continent would collapse like the house of cards.
He said, Pakistan and India have inked treaties in the fields of transport, communication, sports, culture, immigration and trade, which could not sustain a jolt at the Line of Control and came to standstill. The swan song of the Indian leaders for friendship and ‘aman ki asha’ also stopped.
Maulana Fazlur Rahman said, India was making efforts for declaring the Pakistanis as extremists and terrorists. However, we always emphasized that extremism and terrorism have no religion or country. Now, the Indian Home Minister have admitted the existence of terrorist camps in India, run by the extremist Hindus. India should clean its stead as soon as possible.
The Chairman Kashmir Committee said that Kashmir was the core issue, which should be resolved at the earliest possible. Unless it is resolved, efforts to settle other issues will not fructify. He said, we had defended our freedom for the last 65 years and will do so in future also.
We know how to defend the territory of our homeland and we will gave a befitting response to any adventure from outside. He said, we will continue our support for the genuine struggle of the Kashmiris, till the Kashmir issue is resolved.
He urged the Government of Pakistan not to accord the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to India, unless the reservations from the quarters concerned are removed. He also called upon them to adopt a strong stance on Kashmir.
