LAHORE: Jamaat-ud-Dawah(JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has made a statement stating that Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is responsible for the killing of Kashmiris.
Hafiz Saeed alleged that a countrywide protest will be held in Pakistan if Rajnath Singh will attend the SAARC ministerial conference.
"I want to ask the Pakistani government will it add insult to injury to the wounds of Kashmiris by welcoming Rajnath who is responsible for the killings of innocent Kashmiris," he said in a statement here.
"It will be ironical as on the one hand the whole Pakistani nation is protesting against the Indian atrocities in Kashmir and on the other hand the Pakistani rulers will be garlanding Singh," said the statement issued on Monday.
Hafiz Saeed said "if Singh comes to Islamabad on August 3, the JuD would hold countrywide protest to tell the world that the Pakistani rulers might have compulsions to receive Kashmiris' killers but the people of Pakistan are siding with oppressed Kashmiris.”
He added that, “Protest demonstrations will be held and rallies taken out in Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta, Multan, Faisalabad, Muzaffarabad and other cities of the country on August 3.”
During his Srinagar visit, the people of Kashmir will not met him. People refused to receive the BJP leader on the excuse that it may hurt and incite feelings of Kashmiris and Pakistanis."
In the wake of ongoing unrest in Kashmir, Hizbul Mujahideen supreme commander Syed Salahuddin has asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to immediately recall its ambassador from New Delhi and "suspend trade and diplomatic ties" with India.
“The Pakistani government should not have invited Singh to the SAARC conference”, he said.
"Ailing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should at least recall Pakistan's ambassador from New Delhi and suspend trade and diplomatic ties with India. The rulers should give up hypocrisy and the Pakistan government should either plead the case of Kashmiris or make friends with India," Salahuddin said.
"It would have been better if the Pakistani government had not the Indian home minister in SAARC conference as it would give a wrong message to the Kashmiris," he said.
