Govt must set US to banish Indians from Afghanistan.
LAHORE -- While claiming that India would pay the price for plotting against Pakistan, Ameer Jamat-ul-Dawa (JoD) Hafiz Saeed urged the government to make a settlement with United States (US) for banishing Indians from neighbouring Afghanistan if western forces wanted safe-exit from turmoil land.
He said this during his address to a rally at The Mall in Lahore, held in reference with the "Kashmir Solidarity Day" here on Wednesday. Hundreds of vigilant and enthusiastic JoD activists took part in the rally. Rally percipients, consisting of youngsters largely, were holding placards and JoD flags. They chanted anti-India slogans and condemned the Indian military brutalities and atrocities over people of Indian held Kashmir.
On the occasion, eminent leaders and religious figures from JoD, Jamat-e-Islami and Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) including JI leader Farid Paracha, JoD central leader Ameer Hamza, ameer JoD Lahore, Abu-al-Hashim, ameer JoD Islamabad Sultan Mehmood, Allama Ibtisam Elahi, and a Kashmiri female freedom activist Asia Andrabi addressed the rally through telephonic link.
JoD chief, Hafiz Saeed pledged that Indian installations and secret agencies were plotting and destabilizing Pakistan through neighbouring country.
"In order to ensure Pakistan's security at eastern and western border, our government should propose US to throw out Indian troops and spies operating independently in Afghanistan to destabilize Pakistan", Hafiz Saeed demanded.
"Government should avoid according over any issue with US until he ensures Indian troops and secret agencies departure from Afghanistan, and must tell US clearly that no safe-exit will be given if the US does not act upon", JoD chief said.
Hafiz Saeed expressed concerns over government plans to give status of Most Favorite Nation (MFN) to India and said that until Kashmir issue was not resolved, no such status must be given to India. He vowed that the Kashmir was the core dispute between both countries and the Premier Nawaz Sharif must make this clear to Indian counterpart.
Besides he demanded the government to resolve Kashmir issue in accordance with Security Council's recommendations and the issue of water and dams construction over rivers in Kashmir before extending MFN status to India.
He resolved that if Kashmir issue did not settle by political arrangements, then the Jihad for Kashmiris liberation would continue. He mentioned that according to Quranic teachings, "helping Muslims, those had been enslaved was compulsory to be helped" and this was what JoD set to do".
Asia Andrabi, in her address expressed her ardent urge to be a Pakistani and underscored that people of Kashmir and Pakistan were bonded in relation of Islam and humanity. She insisted that "slavery of man was prohibited in Islam", thus we (Kashmiris) had to fight for our rights and offered countless sacrifices for freedom.
Central leader Difa-e-Pakistan Council, Allama Ibtisam Ali Zaheer in his address said that Pakistan armed force were maneuvered to kick off a military operation FATA against Taliban, rather working out the plans to defeat antagonists on eastern front. "Pakistan army should start military operation against non-believers forces instead of Islamist Taliban", he underscored.Speakers on the occasion acknowledged Kashmiris' right to self-determination and demanded dispute's resolution in accordance with the Security Council's resolutions.
