Glorification of terrorist speaks loud

The statement of the Pakistani Prime Minister of terming the slain commander of Hizbul as ‘symbol of Kashmir freedom’, makes it enough evident that glorification of terrorism is habit of Pakistan and by doing this they are sustaining.
In his nearly 20-minute speech, almost half of which was focused on Kashmir, Sharif hailed Wani as the “symbol” of the Kashmiris’ freedom movement. He said a “new generation” of Kashmiris has risen spontaneously against India’s “illegal occupation – demanding freedom from occupation”.
Although, lambasting Nawaz Sharif’s “glorification” of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani in his speech to the UN General Assembly, India said hailing a “self-advertised” terrorist at the forum is “self- incrimination” by the Pakistani leader.
Minister of State for External Affairs M J Akbar said it is “shocking” that a leader of a nation can “glorify a self- declared self-advertised terrorist” at a forum such as the United Nations General Assembly.
This is self-incrimination by the Pakistan Prime Minister. We just heard a speech full of threat, bluster and what can only be described as rising immaturity and complete disregard of facts.
The Pakistan Prime Minister referred to Wani, who was killed in an encounter with security forces on July 8, as a “young leader” and said he has “emerged as the symbol of the latest Kashmiri Intifada, a popular and peaceful freedom movement…”
India has rejected Sharif’s call for “a serious and sustained” dialogue “without any conditions”.
India clarified that talks and guns don’t go together. India’s position on a dialogue has been consistent. It has always been ready for a dialogue but will not succumb to the blackmail tactics of the government in Islamabad that seems eager to use terrorists and terrorism as policy.
Sharif had said that Islamabad is open to discuss “all measures of restraint and responsibility” with India, in “any forum or format and without any conditions” but blamed India for posing “unacceptable preconditions” to engage in a dialogue.
In a strong rejection of Sharif’s assertion that violations of human rights are being committed by Indian forces in ‘occupied’ Jammu and Kashmir, India said the only occupation in Jammu and Kashmir, which is a part of India, is the occupation of a part of
Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistan occupation army”.
Pakistan’s consistent use of war and terrorism has been at the cost of development of the people of Pakistan.
