Srinagar, January 16, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has criticised India saying that New Delhi wants to maintain status quo over the Kashmir issue. Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “India never wants a prosperous and stable Pakistan and is attempting to destabilize it”.
The veteran leader emphasised that a stable Pakistan “stands a guarantee for the resolution of Kashmir dispute” and urged all patriotic forces in Pakistan to understand the need of the hour and observe wisdom. He advised them not to be part of any sort of expedition aimed to destabilize the country.
Gilani said, ”Though we are not directly related with the politics of Pakistan but as a matter of fact the prevailing situation in the country has direct impact over the Kashmir dispute and India would try to take advantage from it”. He reiterated that everybody had a right to expression and was free to address gatherings and organize the processions but peace, welfare and stability of the country “deserves top priority.”
