LAHORE: Jamatud Dawa chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed has said that solution to Kashmir issue is a liability on the shoulders of the armed forces and Pak Army should fulfill its responsibility in this regard.
He was addressing ‘Estehkam-e-Pakistan Convention’ held here to express solidarity with Pak Army. Pakistan-administered Kashmir’s former Prime Minister Sardar Atiq Ahmed Khan, ex-ISI DG Hameed Gul, Hafiz Abdur Rehman Makki, JI leader Dr Farid Piracha, Lahore High Court Bar Association president Shafqat Chohan and others also addressed on the occasion.
Slamming Geo TV for projecting peace with hostile neighbour India, under the banner of ‘Amn ki Asha’, Saeed demanded that a referendum should be conducted to ascertain the opinion of the nation over ‘Amn ki Asha’. He said Jang Group had committed a crime by maligning Pak Army and it should not only seek apology but also face penalty. He said that the media group had promoted Hindi and Western culture in the country and made efforts to transform the country into a secular state by negating the two nation theory.
Saeed said after a long time, the army chief had termed the Kashmir as Pakistan’s juggler vein. He said the Kashmir issue was a liability on the shoulders of Pak Army and time had come to resolve it at the earliest. He said that “entire Kashmir would have been part of Pakistan if the military commander had followed the instruction of Quaid-e-Azam.”
The JuD leader said that “nation is united against the forces who wanted to destabilise the country.” He said that they condemn the attack on Hamid Mir, but the propaganda launched against the armed forces after the attack was bigger assault.
Sardar Atiq said the Defence Minister committed a shameful act by defending the country’s enemies instead of armed forces. He claimed that India wanted to establish military cantonments in Pakistani areas under the grab of trade.
Hameed Gul said it was shameful that the Prime Minister and President did not bother to express their sympathies with the families of the martyrs on Yaum-e-Shuhada.—Agencies
