During the speech, the JI chief also said that the Kashmir issue will not be resolved by “bus diplomacy” or “fankar [artistes] diplomacy”. He said that while the Indian government was obviously a major hurdle in the independence of Kashmiris, the policies of the Government of Pakistan were also not helping. He said that the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should set out a “clear policy” on the Kashmir issue and that his party would ally itself with only that party which had a clear Kashmir policy.
The JI chief said that India could never be Pakistan’s friends and that anyone who wanted to be friends with it should go to Mumbai. He also said that Pakistan’s rulers were deaf, dumb and blind to the sacrifices of Kashmiris.
