Pakistanis should support Kashmiri brothers: Hafiz Saeed
LAHORE: Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has said that the ongoing protests in Kashmir would be intensified and warned that the deaths in the region would not be in vain.
Addressing a meet in Lahore, Saeed said, “This time the people in Kashmir are on streets. This protest has become a mass movement. All groups in Kashmir have united. All the wings of the Hurriyat have become one. The Muttahida Jihad Council and all other groups have come on to the same platform. Those who have died in Kashmir, their deaths will not be in vain.”
More than 30 people were killed and several others injured, with both people and security forces turning hostile in protest-related violence in the Kashmir Valley, after Kashmiris took to the streets to condemn the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani.
“We in Pakistan will intensify the movement which is taking place in Kashmir. When Pakistan join hands in this movement with Kashmir then Kashmir will become part of Pakistan,” he added.
Saeed, who is the prime accused in the 26/11 Mumbai attack case, told people here to make the movement a national one. “We have to take the movement to national level so that even the government of Pakistan understands the matter,” he said.
Meanwhile, Saeed’s account ‘HafizSaeedLive’ has been suspended by online social networking service Twitter for posting about the ongoing protests in Kashmir valley and the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani frequently.
