Pak Must Stop Terrorism if it Wants Better Ties: Farooq Abdullah
“If Pakistan continued to send militants, India would not stop itself from waging war against it”: Farooq Abdullah
National Conference Chief Farooq Abdullah on 10 Feb warned that India would not keep from waging war on Pakistan if it did not stop sending terrorists.
His remark came after Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists attacked an Army camp in Jammu, killing two soldiers and injuring six others.
"If Pakistan continued to send militants, India would not stop itself from waging war against it," he said.
Abdullah asked Pakistan to stop sending terrorists if it wanted to improve relations with India.
He said "war cannot solve any problem" and could lead to bad consequences.
Thus to avoid war with India and improve relations with the neighbouring country, Pakistan must stop the daily routine of sending trained militants to it.Abdullah, while talking to the media at Mulanpur Dakha
The NC leader suggested that representatives of both the countries should sit together and sort out the matter.
He said, "Even after war, problems (between countries) are always sorted out through negotiations."
Earlier on Saturday, Akbar Lone, National Conference MLA from Sonawari’s had allegedly raised “pro-Pakistan” slogans in the house, saying that he was "provoked" to do so after the BJP MLAs had raised anti-Pakistan slogans in the assembly, reports Times of India.
According to the report, Abdullah had criticized Lone’s action and said that it was both "unacceptable" and that the party "disowns and condemns his remark".
His stance was also supported by senior leader, Omar Abdullah who in a tweet said: "Totally endorse my Party President's views outlined in these two tweets. The party will say nothing more on this issue.”
