South AsiaPakistan behind Kashmir protests, no need for plebiscite in Valley: India

NEW DELHI, Indian: The Indian Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday accused Pakistan of being behind protests in Kashmir, and also said that there was no need for plebiscite in the Valley.

“Instead of fixing its internal problems, Pakistan is trying to destabilize India,” the Indian media quoted Rajnath Singh as saying in the Lok Sabha during a debate on the Kashmir issue.

Rajnath Singh said that the Indian government was taking all necessary steps to improve the situation in the Valley.

“If terrorism is there in India then it is due to Pakistan which is sponsoring terrorism,” the home minister said.

“Our neighbor is conspiring to disturb the situation in the Kashmir Valley in the name of the religion,” Singh alleged.

Singh lashed out at Pakistan and said “They broke off from India in the name of religion, but today they are broken in two parts because of terrorism. Every day they are fighting against it.”

“Whatever be the napak (unholy) intentions of our neighbour, it will not succeed,” Rajnath said to the thumping of benches in the Lok Sabha.

On July 8, the Indian forces killed Hizbul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani which caused massive unrest in the Valley. Pakistan also termed Burhan Wani as “martyr” of independence movement and observed a ‘Black Day’ against Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.

Rajnath Singh said that it is sad that Pakistan was calling a terrorist a “martyr” and was observing a black day over killing of Burhan Wani.

“Burhan Wani was a commander of terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen. He was tech-savy and was instigating the youth to take up arms on social media,” he said.

In his message on the occasion of black day, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that Kashmir was not an internal matter of India, and asked New Delhi to hold a plebiscite there to respect the rights of Kashmiris.

The Indian home minister said that there was no need for plebiscite in Kashmir Valley.

“From time to time, there had been demands for a plebiscite in Kashmir, but this demand has become irrelevant in the present context,” Sindh said.
