ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said that we will go to war with India if needed to protect Kashmiris.
Addressing to the press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday, Bilawal said that the nation is celebrating Eid-ul-Azha as solidarity day with Kashmiri people.
“PM Imran Khan should visit the Kashmir to express solidarity with its people,” the PPP Chairman said, “Kashmiris wait for Imran Khan for two days but he didn’t come.”
Bilawal said that if the government of Pakistan handles the Kashmir issue according to the wishes of the nation with ‘seriousness’ then the entire nation and politicians would stand behind the government and its policy.
He further said that the political brass of the country should send a unanimous message to the world that Pakistan is firmly behind the people of illegally occupied Kashmir whom India and the Indian government has annexed.
He continued that whatever has happened and is happening in the occupied land will be detrimental to regional peace and security and come what may, his political party and the people of Pakistan would continue to struggle and strive for the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir and their due rights.
Bilawal termed Indian prime minister Narendra Modi an extremist and added that blood of thousands of innocent Kashmiris were on his hands.
He said that Kashmiri people were calling for help and added that on this occasion they could not keep silence. The PPP leader said that India violated international laws and used cluster ammunition to target the civilian population in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) across the line of control.
“The nation stands behind the plight of our brethren in Indian Occupied Kashmir,” he vowed.
When asked about the recent monsoon rain in Karachi, Bilawal said: “It’s all propaganda about Karachi’s situation. Nobody criticises Lahore authorities when they got hit by such a situation.”
“I salute to CM Sindh and other cabinet members who spent two days on roads,” Bilawal said.
