‘DPC will continue to oppose NATO supplies resumption’

JuD chief Hafiz Saeed holds US, India respon­sible for sectar­ian unrest in Gilgit-Baltis­tan.

As doubts linger over the government reopening the Nato supply lines, Jamatud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed has made his stance clear over the issue. “Our talks with the US have failed,” said Saeed, while talking to the media before addressing a public gathering on Sunday.

“They (the US) didn’t tender an apology over the Salala attack, nor agreed upon stopping the drone strikes,” Saeed pointed out.

Nato supplies have remained closed since the Salala checkpost attack in November, 2011.

However, Saeed made it clear that the Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) will continue to oppose the resumption of supplies, if the situation ever arises.

“If supplies are ever resumed, it will only entrench the US further in Afghanistan,” warned Saeed.

When questioned about the recent sectarian unrest in Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B), the JuD chief held the US and India responsible for the strife.

Alleging that India aims to create a new state by combining parts of G-B with Laddakh, Saeed asserted that “the US will also be able to achieve its objective of severing the road link between Pakistan and China.”

@Ayaz Mahmood: "America and Israel are involved directly in the global terrorism since World War I. and India is their partner for last 65 years."

India did not even have diplomatic relations with Israel until 1991 i.e. the first 44 years of its existence. Secondly, it was Pakistan that was a member of SEATO/CENTO and partnered with US in the Afghan jihad not India. India was a leader of the non-aligned movement - a movement which became irrelevant once Soviet union collapsed.

Both of these stories have been reported in ET today , in which: Hafiz Saeed: India aims to create a new state by combining parts of G-B with Laddakh.

G-B Chief Minister Shah said that his administration would ban the clerics who are stoking sectarianism and fuelling hatred in their Friday sermons.

One of them is surely wrong. Who?
