8:16 pm
the fun of former prime minister benazir bhutto and former president asif ali zardari is the chairman of pakistan peoples party he is critical of both the indian and his own government i wish that i while condemning the human rights abuses in. in in magoo's akash mean or the attack on press freedoms in occupied kashmir i wish i was speaking from a moral ground moral high ground and i would be speaking from one of the high ground of my own government was not restricting some human rights and media freedoms in pakistan but having said that we can't equate our concerns about curtailment of democracy in pakistan with the military occupation by an extremist government by the man seen as the butcher of good drop. over the the people of kashmir i mean no matter our own flaws no matter our own weaknesses we have to we have to talk for those who cannot talk for themselves and at the moment there is a total media back out in occupied kashmir the whole political leadership in
8:17 pm
occupied kashmir whether those who used to boycott the electoral process and advocated for a freedom movement or those who took part in elections who served as chief ministers even under the b j p's own government all have been rounded up and put under arrest so it is that who is left. to talk to the people of kashmir if the people of us out this me to not talk out if the people of pakistan and i don't see eye to comprehend that i don't wish my government was i was fighting more passionate case a more convincing case more powerful case but that case is strong according to sadar masood han the president of pakistan administered kashmir do you think pakistan has a case pakistan has a case and the people of jammu and kashmir have a case in fact india has committed aggression in the recent weeks against the people of jammu and kashmir they have invaded the territory. inducted additional $180000.00 troops to brutalize kashmiris so do we have a case of course we have
8:18 pm
a case and everybody knows that the indian or quite bushmeat has been under occupation for the past 72 years and india has made this fresh move colonised the territory of kashmir do we have a case yes we do because the issue of german bushmeat is on the agenda of the united nations security council and we have a case because there are several resolutions which have mandated that the future of the jammu and kashmir dispute should be decided in accordance with the aspirations of the people of jammu and kashmir. to be supervised by the united nations do we have a case yes we have just as india has a strong strategic ally in the united states pakistan needs allies to highlight their case as well in foreign minister recently visited beijing and returned home with support from the chinese government as
8:19 pm
a 1st step toward it was this ready to consult with. someone who stood with consistently and is one of the p 5 members that china. with the delegation to meet with the chinese leadership and i have come back. satisfaction that it to complete and to stand and indorse a point if you considered the indian action as unilateral. unlawful. and they feel that the matter should be result under the un charter and according to the a pickable security council resolutions they have endorsed a point if you concerned about the peace and security of division. during the muslim festival of the in a rare show of bipartisan solidarity rushing in billable prayed that kashmiris in
8:20 pm
pakistan side of the border. but internal divisions remain in the political opposition is critical of how the government handled india's constitutional changes . do you agree that pakistan should be doing more and do you think that a divided opposition in the ruling party sends the right message i don't think that the division between the ruling party and the opposition sense right a message or 2 or that there's a sense this this that the action taken is too little too late for example we see that the government of pakistan is following not leading but it's not a time for us to be nit picking we in the opposition have extended a movement in you to extend our support to the people of kashmir and do whatever we can in our limited capacity but there's also concern on the pakistani side as well i've spent the day at the line of control docking to ordinary kashmiris who feel that pakistan perhaps has not done enough and that is something that was shared on the parliament floor by the opposition as well where the prime minister said that
8:21 pm
you know if they like them cannot go to war how what would you tell them that will suffer satisfy them that by going on is doing all it can over the kashmir if you can with why am i here. to give a message of solidarity i represent the government of pakistan and i am here with the permission of the prime is to pakistan i discussed it with him last night and he said by all means you must go and show solidarity he himself is coming what else can pakistan do if you share the feeling of kashmir is that they feel let down what else do you think that the government can do i do share the feeling that they feel it and i would don't necessarily want to 12 on the criticism but as i said earlier . i think that the people of kashmir are looking to leadership and they are looking for the prime minister of pakistan to speak to the motions. and to speak to the crisis and take concrete actions not react not 5 days later decide to take any reciprocal action with india which is unfortunately what we saw in this
8:22 pm
situation but would have preferred immediate action would absolutely have preferred for more of a consensus for more bipartisan approach i mean the prime minister chose to. arrest the former prime minister mr new washer reese daughter right in the middle of this crisis these are very divisive tactics of the prime minister of pakistan who are not i don't choose to dwell on those at the moment but i believe it's important is for us to all speak out for those who can put those who can speak out for themselves because they can't come before your cameras because they're not been allowed because they don't know how they relatives are doing whether those relatives are living abroad with israel and relatives living in other states of india they don't know how their blood relatives are doing in kashmir so that's a human that humanitarian crisis that's a genuine concern as the president of pakistan administered kashmir do you think by government has done enough we thank the people of pakistan and the government of pakistan the parliament of focused on for the steps that they have already taken
8:23 pm
and the solidarity that they have expressed with the occupied territories particularly its people so we want to thank them they have started a process of initiatives let's watch how india response or chooses not to respond and then the response of the state of pakistan would develop so i don't think that these are the final word and yes it is natural that the people in the street should expect more but as you must of heard from other government officials that pakistan firmly believes that there should be a diplomatic and political solution we do not go down the path to war mongering we do not want to stoke. war hysteria as india has done so pakistan is showing restraint and responsibility but at the same time it is proactive it is reaching out to the united nations security council other
8:24 pm
international forums and there would be additional measures which would or strict or punish what india has done the people of pakistan stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of kashmir as far as to. state politics is concerned at the various political parties obviously have their differences but when it comes to the issue of kashmir we all stand united and whether it's the prime minister the opposition leader or my south my speech in the national assembly we time and time again emphasized the fact that we are willing to stand together and stand united for the people of kashmir india says that it is proof that pakistan was harboring terrorists and groups which are a threat to the indian state how do you respond to that when india says that it is in response to what pakistan. this is india's hobbyhorse this is. false wouldn't fabrication that they have been selling to the rest of the world yes there was a time when. the we called them freedom fighters they used to go across the line of
8:25 pm
control because they were being killed this was in the early 1990 s. but since then. i mean after particularly after 20032004 that practice came to an end and india has practically sealed the border would be millions. really afraid of north these $250.00 militants as the call them militants but millions of fish meetings would come to the square s. and streets and chant the slogan very loudly go india go back leave. they are freed of this beast.
