 The information minister urged India to fulfill their former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru's promise of a referendum in Kashmir.

“…India cannot become part of the UN Security Council until it fulfils pledges made by Nehru,” he said.

Totally agree with this man. As soon as Pakistan vacates the occupied land and handover the rest of Kashmir to India, there would be eternal peace in the region. So, When shall we start?

@KashmirMuslim: Agree 100%. The moment Kashmir becomes a part of Pakistan, many of the so called Muslims will be called non-Muslims and will be bombed to death, along with their families, during prayers or at schools.

This infatuation with Kashmir has to end or Pakistan will meet its own end.
