LAHORE: India with the connivance of the US is aspiring to carry out surgical strikes against Islamists in Pakistan, Jamaatud Dawa Emir Hafiz Saeed alleged on Sunday.

“A plan regarding surgical strikes against Islamists in Pakistan was finalised in the recent meeting between US President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendera Modi after which India started violating Pakistan’s territorial integrity,” a press release quoted Saeed as telling his party’s central, zonal and district leadership on Sunday.

He urged the government to stop promoting trade ties with New Delhi arguing that better relations with India were impossible until resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
