LAHORE - Former DG Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt Gen (r) Hameed Gul has said that the key to solution for Kashmir problem lies in Kabul. The western imperialism is facing a humiliating defeat in Afghanistan. Despite the unrelenting brutalities meted out to Kashmiris by the Indian forces, the peace in the valley can only be achieved once the people are given the right to self-determination. He expressed these views while talking to Waqt News Tuesday. Gul said although India was now ready to give autonomy to the Kashmiris, but their destination was nothing less than the complete freedom from Indian rule. He hoped that the moment of truth had arrived. He claimed that the Aman ki Asha (Wish for Peace), a non-governmental programme apparently aiming at friendly ties between Indians and Pakistanis, was sponsored by the US, which wanted to boost its image by bringing the two nations close. He termed the project as a failure. There can never exist any friendship between Pakistan and India, he asserted. Gul also blamed India for the targeted killings in Karachi and Balochistan. He said the government could not implement the Parliaments resolution against the drone attacks due to Musharrafs govt accord with the US. Gul said Aafia Siddique was innocent and that the US would release her within a week if the Pakistan blocked the Nato supplies to Afghanistan. He said even if she had any link with Al-Qaeda or Osama bin Laden, it could not prove her guilty of any crime. Pakistan controls the war in Afghanistan as it enjoys the control over the westerns supplies. The religious and political parties must stage a nationwide sit-in specifically against the Nato supplies. This will result in Aafias return, end of US pressure on Pakistan and restoration of historic ties between Afghans and Pakistanis, he continued. By non-implementation of Supreme Courts rulings, President Zardari is causing harm to the government, PPP and the ideology upheld by Benazir Bhutto, he noted. He termed the constitutional immunity being enjoyed by the president as violation of the injunctions of the Holy Quran and that the confrontation with the other institutions could be harmful for the government. He wondered as to why had PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif made it an issue with the Army when it was Musharraf and not the institution who sacked his elected government in 1999. Now Nawaz Sharif is raising voice for Aafia but can he tell as to whose government handed over Aimal Kansi to the US? he asked. Gul said the only great movement since the Pakistan movement was the one, which the Kashmiris were struggling to uphold the Kashmir independence movement. He also criticised Nawaz Sharifs call to abort the long march on March 15, last. Replying to a question regarding the assassination of MQM leader Imran Farooq in London, he said the UK could not let go a political assassination without thoroughly probed. The nervousness of Altaf Hussain is obvious from his statements and it appears that Scotland Yard might have found some clues to the murder, he observed. Regarding a question about Kalabagh Dam, he said those who were once against the creation of Pakistan were now against the construction of the KBD. Gul blamed the Blac-kwater/Xe World and other similar groups behind insurgency in Pakistan.
