Imran to Pakistanis: Don’t go to Kashmir for jihad Terrorists don’t come from Moon: EU leaders
Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan warned Pakistanis on Wednesday not to go to Kashmir to fight jihad, saying it will hurt the cause of the Kashmiris.
“If anyone from Pakistan goes to India to fight jihad...he will be the first to do an injustice to Kashmiris, he will be the enemy of Kashmiris,” Khan said told the media after inaugurating the Torkham Terminal at Pak-Afghan border.
Khan claimed that India needed just “an excuse to launch crackdown on the besieged people of Kashmir.”
He has repeatedly claimed that India could launch a “false flag” operation to divert attention from Kashmir. Khan also ruled out talks with India unless New Delhi lifts curfew in Kashmir and revoke the abrogation of Article 370. Brussels: European parliamentarians Ryszard Czarnecki and Fulvio Martusciello have slammed Pakistan for harbouring militants, with one of them saying terrorists who carried out attacks in India did not come from the Moon.
During a special debate of the plenary of the European Parliament on the situation in Kashmir on Tuesday, Czarnecki, the member of EU Parliament and European Conservatives and Reformists Group in Poland called India the “greatest democracy of the world”.
“India is the greatest democracy of the world. We need to look at terrorist acts that took place in India, J&K. These terrorists didn’t land from the Moon. They were coming from the neighbouring country. We should support India,” said Czarnecki.
Martusciello, a member of EU Parliament and Group of European People’s Party (Christian Democrats) in Italy, said Pakistan had threatened to use nuclear weapons which was a concern to the European Union.
The EU minister urged India and Pakistan to resolve Kashmir issue through dialogue, seeking a peaceful and political solution, respectful of the interests of the Kashmiri population on both sides of the Line of Control.
She also called on India to restore means of communications in the Valley.
