“India is trying to divert the world attention from the grim tragedy happening in Indian occupied Kashmir for five weeks,” he said while responding to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech on August 15.
The advisor said that thousands of unarmed youth were protesting every day for their right to self-determination in Indian held Kashmir.
He said there was constant curfew and complete media blackout for the past over one month in the Kashmir valley.
He said Modi’s reference to Balochistan only proved Pakistan’s contention that India had been fomenting terrorism in Balochistan.
Sartaj Aziz said it was also confirmed by the public confession of RAW’s active service Naval officer Kulbhushan Yadav in March this year.
He said India should recognize that bullets could not resolve the core issue of Kashmir.
