LAHORE - Jamaat-e-Islami chief Syed Munawwar Hassan stressed upon Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz not to accept Indian terms against Pakistan’s national stance.

In a statement on the eve of the Foreign Advisor’s visit to New Delhi, the JI head said that solution to the Kashmir issue was vital for establishing peace in the region as Pakistan could not safeguard its identity by ignoring the dispute. He said that New Delhi was committing water aggression against the country by building dams on rivers. Sartaj Aziz should adopt a bold stance on this issue and the government must lodge a strong protest with New Delhi in this regard, he said. The JI chief warned that if the government tried to yield to India or accord New Delhi the MFN status, the nation would never accept the move. India is Pakistan’s enemy and has not accepted the creation of this country, he said and added that during the last 65 years, India had made several attempts to wipe out Pakistan and had been adopting novel tactics to harm the country. He further said India had played the key role in the break up of Pakistan in 1971. In recent months, Indian border forces had been busy in unprovoked firing resulting in the martyrdom of dozens of innocent Pakistani people, he added.
