Pakistan runs in our blood, will continue to raise its flag: Gilani

Srinagar, June 01, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has said that Pakistani flag had been hoisted in the territory since 1947 and would continue to be hoisted in future, as well. Syed Ali Gilani addressing a very important and extraordinary meeting held at Hyderpora in Srinagar, yesterday, said “Raising of Pakistani flag is a tradition in Kashmir. It has been happening since 1947. Pakistan has been the biggest supporter and well wisher of our cause.”

The veteran leader, who has been under house arrest for most part of the past five years, said Kashmiris will continue to chant Jeevay Jeevay Pakistan slogans. Gilani told the gathering: “We have no enmity with Indian people, but they should know how their Indian state has unleashed oppression on Kashmiris to occupy our land militarily. We are against this brutal military occupation.”

He said the Indian state is being arrogant and intransigent when it says Pakistan is no stakeholder to the Kashmir issue. “Why then Indians held talks 150 times with Pakistan? Pakistan is the main party to the Kashmir dispute,” he made clear.

“Indian people should know their state is power drunk, involved in rapes, killings, disappearances and holds Kashmir by military occupation which is contrary to even the basic human codes. This naked aggression would not work. The oppressor has to go,” he added.

“The PDP-BJP regime has devised conspiracies for Kashmir and we are looking into this matter seriously,” Gilani said. “We should not be afraid of such overtures.” He said entire Jammu and Kashmir was a geographical entity comprising all religions and regions. “Kashmir is a disputed territory and we would not allow its disintegration. We will resist such moves,” he added, while asking the people to “protect Muslim identity”.

The meeting was held on the invitation of Syed Ali Gilani. A statement issued by his forum quoting the octogenarian leader as having said that Pakistan was supporter of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination and the people of Kashmir were indebted to Islamabad for this support. He said that Kashmiris love Pakistan, and this natural passion could not be eroded from their hearts, forcibly.
