SrinagarA day after Farooq Abdullah’s controversial remark on PaK, son Omar Abdullah Thursday said the Centre should prove his father wrong with “actions” by taking back Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
“I don’t understand the ‘if we try’. What is stopping you from getting it back? Prove Dr (Farooq) Abdullah wrong with your actions rather than with hollowed out words,” Omar Abdullah tweeted.
The National Conference leader was reacting to Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Hans Raj Ahir’s statement that no one can stop India from taking back PaK.
“I say Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir is a part of India and due to the mistakes of the previous governments it has been with Pakistan. If we try to get Pak back, no one can stop us because it is our right,” Ahir said on the sidelines of a function in Delhi.
Farooq Abdullah made controversial remarks earlier this week saying PaK was part of Pakistan while Jammu and Kashmir is part of India.
He said India and Pakistan may fight as many wars as they can but this cannot be changed.
Despite drawing flak, the National Conference president continued with his controversial remarks and while addressing a party function in Uri town of Baramulla district yesterday said that Pakistan was “not weak and not wearing bangles to allow India to take that part of Jammu and Kashmir under its occupation”.
“How long shall we keep saying that (PaK) is our part? It (PaK) is not their father’s share. That (PaK) is Pakistan and this (J&K) is India,” he had said.
