Pakistan desires peace, but to never compromise on Kashmir: President
ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi on Thursday said that Pakistan desired peace but would never compromise on Kashmir, which remained an unfinished agenda of the partition of sub-continent.
Addressing a seminar titled “Radical India vs Responsible Pakistan”, the President said that with the lives of minorities including Sikhs, Christians and Muslims put in trouble, India was following the hatred-based RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) ideology and philosophy, which also led to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi.
He said that Pakistan air force by shooting down the two Indian fighter jets on February 27 last year defeated their nefarious designs.
The President said that Pakistan would continue to stand by the Kashmiri people and would never abandon them. He warned India not to carry out any false flag operation against Pakistan.
The President regretted that Pakistan’s every effort for peace vanished into thin air, and the belligerent India did not reciprocate Pakistan’s gestures of peace.
He said that India by denying the Kashmiris of their just right to self-determination was also violating the Charter of United Nations, which was created on the philosophy of promoting peace in the world.
Referring to the current situation of violence against Muslims in India, the President said that Khushwant Singh, a renowned Indian author, had predicted the same situation in his book “Bharat Ka Khatma” published in 2003. – APP
