Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Munawar Hasan on Saturday hit out at the United States over the growing influence of India in Afghanistan’s affairs, claiming that the role had been ascribed to it by none other than Washington.

In this connection, the JI leader vented his anger at the current Pakistani leadership, particularly Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, for failing to check the enhanced Indian influence in the neighbouring war-torn country.

“India does not share its border with Afghanistan. Pakistan should strongly protest any role from India in the country especially when it poses a security threat to us,” said the JI chief.

Hassan also slagged off the premier for “abandoning the Kashmir cause”.

Speaking at the birth anniversary of JI Azad Jammu Kashmir chapter and the anniversary of Kashmir Martyrs’ Day on Saturday, the JI chief said Premier Nawaz had a “soft corner” for India, pointing out all his friendly gestures towards New Delhi since coming to power in May this year.

Now Indians can see their faces when Mr. Verma spoke out the facts about who did Mumbai & Parliament attacks. You can not fool arround all the times. We know your depth of sincerity in Afghanistan along with your new masters, the US. People like Hassan know what you are upto. The biggest problems with you indians is that you do propaganda and then you make yourselves believe in that.
