ISLAMABAD: Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has said that the unholy India-Israel alliance has placed regional and global peace at stake and this anti-Muslim nexus has crossed all the limits and norms of a civilized society by brutally violating rights in Indian-occupied Kashmir and Israeli-Occupied Palestine.
