National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said India cannot take Pakistan-administered Kashmir back from the neighbouring country.

The three-time Jammu and Kashmir chief minister made the remarks while speaking at Zee India Conclave on Saturday.

Abdullah said: "It will be resolved. It will certainly be resolved. But you have to first acknowledge that a part of Kashmir is with Pakistan. And you have to acknowledge that you are not going to be able to take it back. And Pakistan has to acknowledge there is no way they are going to take any more of the land".

While maintaining that “Kashmir is an integral part of India,” Abdullah said that the issue can only be resolved through dialogue.

He said that the idea of divide and rule must be taken out of “our hearts if we want to bring peace in the Valley.”

“I don’t have the power to stop or control the stone-pelters,” Abdullah said.

During his speech, he also promised to bring the Kashmiri Pandits back home.

When asked if he thinks Pakistan is a “rogue state,” the NC chief said, “There is a rogue Army in Pakistan. Not every Pakistani hates India, there are many who love us.”

He also spoke on women empowerment and said that it is necessary for the development and peace in the state.

Claiming that he believes in the theory of Live and Let Live, he said that the leaders are the ones who have to fight against the forces whether Hindu or Islamic.
