On Saturday, Indian External Affair minister, Sushma Swaraj slammed Pakistan for encouraging terrorism in Kashmir. She accused Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of interfering in India’s internal matter. While briefing a press conference about the safe home return of Judith d’souza who was rescued from Afghan Taliban, Swaraj said that Pakistan is day dreaming that Kashmir will join them one day.
Along with Minister of State for External Affairs, M.J Akbar and Minister of Development of North Eastern Region, V.K Singh, Sushma Swaraj blasted at Pakistan and said that Pakistan will not get Kashmir till the end of eternity. The strong statements came from Indian external affairs minister after the Pakistani Prime Minister tried to instigate the violence in the valley after the killing of Hizbul militant Burhan Wani by the Indian security forces.
Pakistan called the killing of Hizbul commander as extrajudicial killing of Kashmiri leader and tried to create a controversy at international level. Sushma Swaraj also asked Pakistani Prime Minister to withdraw their forces from the Pakistan occupied Kashmir as she claimed that the entire Kashmir belongs to India.
Since the death of Hizbul commander, the valley is burning and the violence claimed lives of around fifty civilians. Reports suggest that several others were injured by pellet guns used by security forces to contain the violent mobs. Sushma Swaraj on Saturday claimed that security forces were asked to use minimum force on the protestors. She also added that in last few days around 1700 security forces were injured due to stone pelting protesters.
