NEW DELHI: Home Minister Rajnath Singh delivered a stern warning to Pakistan, asserting that Kashmir has always been a part of India and that no one can separate it from its territory.
Speaking at an event in poll-bound Tripura, the home minister in an aggressive tone said, “Our neighbouring country, Pakistan, continuously tries to create havoc and destabilise India. It continues to engage in nefarious activities in Kashmir.”
Rajnath said “Kashmir was, is and will always be an integral part” of the Indian territory. “Kisi ne maa ka doodh nahi piya jo Kashmir ko Bharat se alag kar de. Kashmir hamara tha, hai aur rahega (there is no one who can separate Kashmir from India, Kashmir was, is and will remain ours),” media reports quoted Singh as saying.
Last week, Rajnath slammed Pakistan for continuously violating the ceasefire agreement with India, saying Islamabad should not misinterpret India’s “decency”.
“India is no more a weak country. India has now become a powerful country,” Singh said adding that Pakistan being a neighbour should have a friendly attitude towards India.
