Kashmiri leaders demand action against Pak interior secretary
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Nov 7: Speakers at a seminar hosted by APHC-M Pak chapter here took serious note of the Pakistan interior secretary’s recent statement on Kashmir and demanded the incumbent government initiate stern action against the official.
Pertinently, the interior secretary while presenting the ministry’s viewpoint regarding the messy situation in Balochistan made some startling and otiose observations, which straightaway negated Pakistan’s stand on Jammu and Kashmir.
Expressing dissatisfaction over Interior Secretary’s remarks on Kashmir, speakers said that the PPP led coalition government should clarify its position on the subject. They opined that making no difference between Kashmir and other states of India, the Secretary Interior’s statement before the country’s top judge has negated Pakistan’s stance besides lending credence to its claims that Kashmir was an internal problem of India. “India can use it as a reference at international level to strengthen its argument”, one of the speakers said.
“The PPP leadership has been making off the cuff statements on Kashmir”, they said adding that at times they say that the guns should rust while in the same breath they declare Kashmir as part of India. “It is a matter of great concern for Kashmiris and the PPP government must clarify its position”, they said.
