Pakistan is living in a fool's paradise in thinking that it could ever capture Kashmir, Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah said here today.
The National Conference chief emphatically said "Kashmir was, is, and will remain an integral part of India".
"Pakistan is living in a fool's paradise in thinking that it could ever capture Kashmir…Pakistan should better think of itself and its future rather than keeping an eye on Kashmir," Abdullah told reporters at Imperial Golf Club in Mullanpur, about 25 kms from here.
In reply to a question, Abdullah said that peaceful co-existence was the only solution and war would lead to total destruction of all.
"War would only spell disaster, the type of which can be seen in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and some other nations," he said.
Abdullah had yesterday warned that India would not keep from waging war on Pakistan if it did not stop sending militants. His remark came after Jaish militants attacked an Army camp in Jammu, killing two junior commissioned officers and injuring six others, including a Major and a daughter of an Army personnel.
"If Pakistan continued to send militants, India would not stop itself from waging war against it," he said yesterday. PTI
