Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah has stirred a controversy once again by saying that India would not be able to get Pak Administered Kashmir (PAK) back. He added that Pakistan must also acknowledge the fact that it would not be able to occupy more territory in India. The National Conference (NC) leader addressed the issue of Kashmir dispute while speaking at a media event.
“It will be resolved. It will certainly be resolved. But you have to first acknowledge that a part of Kashmir is with Pakistan. And you have to acknowledge that you are not going to be able to take it back. And Pakistan has to acknowledge there is no way they are going to take any more of the land,” Farooq Abdullah said at the media event while addressing the issue.
The former chief minister also said that it was important for everyone to understand that not every Pakistani is India’s enemy and there are people who love the country as well. “Yes, there is a rogue army in Pakistan. You have to know that not every Pakistani hates India. There are many Pakistanis who love us,” he said.
Farooq Abdullah held his calm despite a number of heated exchanges with members of the audience who interrupted him or shouted questions at him. Addressing one such question on what he thought of Pakistan or anti-nationalism as a bigger threat, the former J&K chief minister said, “Both are threats. We have to address both these threats. But, I think the bigger threat is internal.”
Farooq Abdullah also argued that it would be incorrect to call Pakistan a rouge state. “Yes, there is rogue army in Pakistan. You have to know that not every Pakistani hates India. There are many Pakistanis who love us,” he said.
