Sharif targets India yet again, cites ‘sacrifices’ of Kashmiris in Eid-ul Adha address
Needling India yet again, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday dedicated Eid-ul Adha to the “supreme sacrifices” of Kashmiris and said their voices cannot be “suppressed through force”. “We cannot ignore sacrifices of Kashmiris. They will succeed through their sacrifices. We dedicate this Eid to the supreme sacrifices of Kashmiri people and we will continue doing so till the Kashmir issue is resolved as per their wishes,” he said.
Sharif offered Eid prayer along with other family members in the mosque at his Raiwind residence here. He said, “Kashmiri people have sacrificed their third generation in their struggle to get freedom from India.” “They are struggling for their right to self-determination and facing Indian atrocities. Their voice cannot be suppressed through force,” he said.
President Mamnoon Hussain said Pakistan must remember “our Kashmiri brothers and sisters affected by terrorism”. “They (Kashmiri people) are facing the worst atrocities to get their right to self-determination,” he said.
