MUZAFFARABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday vowed that Pakistan would continue its political and diplomatic support for the people of Kashmir in their struggle for freedom and right to self-determination.

Nawaz was addressing the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly on the occasion of Kashmir Day.

The premier said only a fair resolution of the dispute would ensure lasting peace in the region and urged the international community to play its part in this regard.

"I have an association with Azad and occupied Kashmir since childhood and I believe every Pakistani has the same sort of association with it...we will continue our efforts in resolving the issue," Nawaz said.

"Today I am here to show solidarity with Kashmiris. Kashmir and Pakistan are one entity; no power in the world can separate the two," the premier added.

Nawaz said that Pakistanis and Kashmiris belong to the same civilisation and share the similar culture and traditions.

"Pakistan praises the sacrifices rendered by Kashmiris in their struggle against the occupied forces," the prime minister said.

On the occasion, Nawaz also said that Pakistan reiterate its will to stand with the people of Kashmir to achieve their right to self-determination.

"It has been more than 60 years and despite atrocities inflicted upon them, Kashmiris have not given up their struggle...the day is not far when Kashmir would be free," he said.

The premier said that Pakistan would not accept any resolution of the dispute contrary to the aspirations of Kashmiris.

yes we should.

PS Feb 05, 2015 11:55am

Good Luck Mr. NS.....But unfortunately you mill not end up with any Luck...Forget it

Varun Feb 05, 2015 11:59am

Arre Yaar, joke bandh kar !! Please send the troops you have placed on ur east to ur western borders. You need ur army to protect innocent Pakistanis from being targetted by Taliban...

Secularly Yours Feb 05, 2015 11:59am

Balochistan and Sindh are also demanding freedom just like Bangladesh. All those supporting freedom of Kashmir and not of Balochistan, you are nothing but hypocrites of the highest level.

shezad Feb 05, 2015 12:00pm

Nawaz's family is from Kashmir so naturally he would feel the issue is close to his heart.

But beyond all the hoopla and being on the right side, there is nothing Pakistan can do about the issue.

Mr Feb 05, 2015 12:01pm

What choice does he have anyway. A Pakistani pm does what a Pakistani army General tells him, that's how Pakistani "democracy" works! What a country!

minni Feb 05, 2015 12:01pm

Support Baloch freedom Struggle... Support NWFP Freedom Struggle...

KEVIN THOMAS Feb 05, 2015 12:01pm

rudra Feb 05, 2015 12:08pm

Shahid Khan Feb 05, 2015 12:11pm

When we cannot fix any issue in Pakistan, Kashmir issue becomes our highest priority!

Azmeen Feb 05, 2015 12:11pm

All countries should support right of self determination of Kashmiri people already accepted in the form of UN Security Council resolutions. No need to support India or Pakistan.

Jason Feb 05, 2015 12:12pm

while you keep filling your pockets, eh Nawaz Miyan?

Azmeen Feb 05, 2015 12:13pm

@may India is already supporting Balochistan rebels.

Someone Feb 05, 2015 12:14pm

@rudra haha well said

craig Feb 05, 2015 12:15pm

Remember its Modi leading India now, not Manmohan or Vajpeyee. Just be careful !

Rahman Feb 05, 2015 12:16pm

This is unfinished business from partition. How can any Pakistani chafe at this statement? It is our fundamental raison-de-tre for our existence since the days of the Pakistan Movement.

rahul1 Feb 05, 2015 12:17pm

How can people in Pak stand such rants/rhetoric from politicians esp. when own house on uncontrolled fire .

S K Sinha Feb 05, 2015 12:18pm

Ohh. Why cannot NS speak of development, employment, peace etc.

Kranti Feb 05, 2015 12:23pm

"Kashmir and Pakistan are one entity; no power in the world can separate the two" the premier added. Then why did you give 2/3 of Kashmir to China...LOL

Nelson Feb 05, 2015 12:25pm

It is so heartening we will support the cause whatever be the cost.

dorri from kashmir Feb 05, 2015 12:26pm

If Indians rant up balochistan than pakistan will rant up sikkim and Assam. Kashmiris are pakistanis held by Indian forces by force.India shares nothing with Kashmir region.

Manoj Feb 05, 2015 12:27pm

Ask NS to take a world tour ....... He is fit only for that

Www.pakistantoday.tv Feb 05, 2015 12:27pm

This is a positive step by the govt their credibility will be good in the messes after this slogan

Abhishek Upadhyay Feb 05, 2015 12:28pm

Pakistan has never challenged the accession of J&K with India on any International forum because the accession is legally and constitutionally valid. Due to British US diplomacy during the time of partition and their association with Pakistan, Kashmir issue has come to this stage.

Today common Kashmiri sees where they are and where rest of India has gone also they see the condition of Pakistan. Common Kashmiri wants his kids to live in Peace and become Doctor or Engineer. They send their kids to other parts of India for education. They have understood that there is nothing in separatism of blind religious war. They definitely do not want to side with Pakistan whose existence itself in future is in doubt.

Today Militants and Separatists in valley are demotivated and they know separatism is a lost cause with out any support of common Kashmiri. Except Kashmiri speaking Sunni Muslims no one supports separatists. Shia Muslims, Gujjar Muslims, Bakarval, Rajput Muslims all of them have opposed separatism and militancy.

Urvashi Feb 05, 2015 12:29pm

So this brand of patriotism is the last resort of the politicians. The house is on fire and nothing is being done. The country is distressed and questions are being asked. So what better than raise the bogey of Kashmir? But how long will this work? Already intelligent public of Pakistan are murmuring that there are more immediate and important issues to be solved? Will the politicians listen to those voices?

Modi Feb 05, 2015 12:31pm

India to keep supporting Baluchistan freedom Struggle which is there due right from last 68 years: Modi

Sab Se Pehle Pakistan Feb 05, 2015 12:32pm

Yes will continue the struggle from his raiwind palace. Full of drama. Shameless I must say.

Our Pakistani Army is loyal to the cause and country.

Pakistan Zindabad

Saagar Feb 05, 2015 12:32pm

Why the Kashmir obsessed pak politicians and their attitude has no takers in Kashmir, the simple answer is every Kashmiri is now mature enough to know the real reasons. If you were so much caring about Kashmir you would have developed your side of Kashmir to showcase your attitude. We now have railways, infrastructures, malls, international airport, schools, colleges, medical colleges, engineering colleges and job opportunities in big Indian companies and Mncs. You do not have electricity and petrol for your citizens, and Jammu Kashmir GDP is growing @ more than 10% every year. Jammu kashmir receives more than a million tourist in a year that is more than whole of Pakistan. I am a Kasmir born Indian citizen working for an Indian multinational company having business in more than 40 countries worldwide. Can you give such avenues to your youth, first set your house in order and then talk.

Taimur Feb 05, 2015 12:34pm

@KEVIN THOMAS Pakistan will support Nagaland state movement, Bihar state movement, Khalistan movement and take Kashmir by force if India does not meet own commitments....

dorri from kashmir Feb 05, 2015 12:35pm

Can you Indians tell us what you share with Kashmiri people??? lol

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 12:37pm

@Rahman Bangladesh?

fawad Feb 05, 2015 12:38pm

Pakistan should start with giving real freedom to Azad Kashmir, and then let remaining Indian occupied Kashmir join it.

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 12:39pm

@Nelson Cost is what the nation is going thru it may get worst if this obsessive compulsive disorder of parroting Kashmir doesn't stop

Chugh Feb 05, 2015 12:40pm

@shezad My family was from MULTAN... Let the whole punjab(Pakistan) be merged with Indian Punjab.. Counter that.

B. Shiv Kumar Feb 05, 2015 12:40pm

ok...keep on supporting, what else you can do

pakistani Feb 05, 2015 12:42pm

There are 10 independent movements in India that's quite a lot. Assam and sikkim on its peak.

@devil This period is enough to test any theory.

prince Feb 05, 2015 12:52pm

Sorry news for Pakistanis..... there will be no development and be ready for more terrorist strikes!!!

Akhtar Feb 05, 2015 12:53pm

The people of Occupied Kashmir should be given the vote on who should rule them. I will bet that they do not want indian rule.

Sunil Feb 05, 2015 12:53pm

There is freedom struggle in Baluchistan, will PM Nawaz Sharif, support that.

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 12:55pm

@Chugh why all this trouble Chug sahib when we are doing excellent without it

Dr Carla Feb 05, 2015 12:57pm

He meant POK. He is not fool to interfere in India's internal issues.

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 01:00pm

Let's merge POK with Kashmir you can nominate your two members in the Governing council to be appointed and headed by our Prime minister Mr.Narendra Modi .

Sajjad Abbasi Feb 05, 2015 01:00pm

it is not a claim for piece of land (pakistan's demand) it is people of Kashmir who want Pakistan.

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 01:01pm

Will you be able to provide fuel and electricity.?

amrut Feb 05, 2015 01:01pm

kashmir Bhajan is one of the surest ways of diverting the attention of citizens from major issues. Pity NS and the future PMs

pravin Feb 05, 2015 01:01pm

Simply making inocent pakistani people fool. any leader in pakistan speak on kashmir to become populer, and NS is also diverting mind of people from internal issues. not only Modi govt. But in any govt. You can not do that. Example our so called currupted congress also were very strict on kashmir. So dont make fool us.

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 01:02pm

@dorri from kashmir Fuel & electricity at the top

SKB Feb 05, 2015 01:04pm

Alas! If incidents like Rawalpindi School massacre and Karachi Imambara bombing could not put sense into you, What else can?

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 01:05pm

Word 'Kashmir ' panacea for any politician in trouble for any reason from corruption to loss of support

N Feb 05, 2015 01:07pm

@Taimur try your luck dude.. first get enough fuel to come till there lol...!!!

KEVIN THOMAS Feb 05, 2015 01:07pm

@Taimur sir, you don't have the capacity to reach any part of my country !!!!!!!!

SKB Feb 05, 2015 01:08pm

@dorri from kashmir We, Indians and Pakistanis share genes and no religious allegiance can change this fact.

Arun Madhav Feb 05, 2015 01:08pm

Common kashmiri must be thinking - when will these guys just chill... no way I am going over to Pakistan!

ammar Feb 05, 2015 01:10pm

i would very much appreciate that my indian friends to call us their internal matter.

India did not have any right over us in the first place. yes , india has good global standing and no one wants to talk about kashmir. But it doesnt mean that india is or was right.

We ae not sheep that indians decide tht we belong to them or not.

Yours sincerely,

A kashmiri

Nelson Feb 05, 2015 01:11pm

@Manjeet kocchar Let me remind you we will be supported by our all-weather friend.

Prince Feb 05, 2015 01:11pm

Why Pakistan so worry about Kashmir? You worry about Kashmir when your other states will soon leave the union. I love Pakistan and I support Pakistan. But just be realistic. You will never be able to achieve your goal over Kashmir. Worry about your burning house. Establish peace with India. Save Pakistan.

Thanks Dawn, this forum shows the mentality of Hindus and one can judge them.

INDIAN Feb 05, 2015 01:15pm

@Taimur----- by force??????such an attempt would be so hilarious to watch..on many different levels...Please do go ahead and give Modi an excuse. ...

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 01:15pm

i really feel pity for my neighboring citizens that after nearly seven decades , you are still falling prey to the dishonest ways of your politicians. Have you punished any one of them for loosing half of your country. ? Wasting scares resources for that false cause which your leaders both civil and military, use to take off your attention briefly from core domestic issues. please wake up brothers start questioning them they are laughing all the way to the bank tying you emotionally to Kashmir.

Keshavan Feb 05, 2015 01:16pm

For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

Thinks Feb 05, 2015 01:17pm

NS, talk only about returning the Pak Occupied Kashmir to India. Kashmir is Integral part of India and India will never let it go.

chakbo Feb 05, 2015 01:17pm

India media does not discuss Pakistan any more. We have learnt our lesson and moving into prosperity. Discussing Pakistan and it's issues are considered as waste of time in India.

For your Kashmir concern, Stop sending terrorist and give the Kashmiris some relief and save them. They are very happy in India. After all no one ever wish to become a part of a failed state.

TriStar Feb 05, 2015 01:18pm

This is called as Kashmirophobia.............!

rahul1 Feb 05, 2015 01:19pm

@Rahman Pak movement succeeded only to doom entire population of Pak. High time to learn from mistakes

tellmore Feb 05, 2015 01:22pm

Kashmir is the curse of Pakistan. It will ultimately lead to the destruction of pakistan economy and growth as it has already done so far.

Tarannum S. Feb 05, 2015 01:22pm

@dorri from kashmir Sikkim and Assam have never asked for separation. The ULFA militants who demanded a separate state in the 90s have almost extinguished. And that too they had 100 demands for Assam from the center. Only if those demands were not fulfilled, they demanded a separate state. So these demands were development oriented, not based on any other agenda. Just to clarify.

citizen Feb 05, 2015 01:22pm

@pakistani bro I m staying in Assam n hv studied in Sikkim. U r miss informed. Calm down n save electricity.

KRana Feb 05, 2015 01:23pm

Indian goverment should openly support Bloch freedom fighter and use readymade gwadar port..waiting for completion of Gwadar port

KRana Feb 05, 2015 01:24pm

@may Sure why not..sure we will..

Akram Feb 05, 2015 01:26pm

Classic diversionary tactics. When failing on all other fronts, shout Kashmir. Every one of our past governments have done this. So no surprise.

pakistani Feb 05, 2015 01:26pm

@Manjeet kocchar ...most of the time Indian held Kashmir is shut down in curfew 6 days out of 7 while 7 lakhs Indian troops are patrolling streets and footpaths.

Raj Feb 05, 2015 01:26pm

it is really sad , there is literally no progress on Pak-India relations.All that was achieved through Track-2 diplomacy and Musharraf's four point agenda is growing down in the drain. India armed with a successful election(> 65 % turnout ) in Kashmir ,may not see a purpose in talking to Pak on Kashmir .

Pawan Feb 05, 2015 01:27pm

This man is living in fool's paradise, with the blessings of the Saudi. Army-puppet, made billions of USD and talks of fighting for the rights of Kashmiris. What a hypocrite! Please concentrate on the economy of Pakistan. Don't fool the Pakistanis. Its high time the Pakistanis themselves came out against such rhetoric and made their politicians work in making Pakistan a great nation.

Salman Feb 05, 2015 01:27pm

@wiserneighbour they are doing it. If you don't know you are not well-educated to even comment.

KRana Feb 05, 2015 01:27pm

@dorri from kashmir We share our land and indian muslim which are more in number then Pakistan

Salman Feb 05, 2015 01:27pm

@Modi You are feeling the heat.

Tarannum S. Feb 05, 2015 01:28pm

Why making such a joke of the Kashmiris? 90% of Kashmiris on the Indian side are connected to the mainstream national development. 10% are extremists who would either want to go with Pakistan or go independent. Over 70% vote for govt formation. Which world is NS in? Also for any kind of referendum, both India and Pakistan will first have to vacate from their sides of Kashmir. The moment India and Pakistan vacates Kashmir, it will be the easiest target for militants like ISIS to take control. Why is Pakistan trying to create a situation for the militants to benefit from each other animosity.

Pawan Feb 05, 2015 01:28pm

@Rahman Grow up

Salman Feb 05, 2015 01:29pm

@Global indian Internal matter like the 17 movements going on. Soon it will be external matter.

bala Feb 05, 2015 01:29pm

India must observe pok solidarity day today.

madhusudan Feb 05, 2015 01:34pm

@Rahman first produce enough electricity and petrol than think about kashmir

ravirajsher Feb 05, 2015 01:34pm

india and pakistan was same entity/

Manjeet kocchar Feb 05, 2015 01:35pm

@Taimur let Pakistan first support its citizens in their endeavor of getting rid of terrorists , and use the remaining resources for supporting separatist movements in India

Adrian Feb 05, 2015 01:37pm

@dorri from kashmir - If we don't share anything , wat are you doing in our land. Its Jammu n Kashmir Btw and its more indian than Gigit & Baltistan is to Pakistan. You don't even have proper roads there and you talk of India in Kashmir!!! ROFL

Yogender lodhi Feb 05, 2015 01:37pm

Best joke of the year .....

Gaurav Arya Feb 05, 2015 01:38pm

I think we Indians should be truthful with Pakistanis on this issue. You (Pak) guys break off from Kashmir permanently and we will close down our 22 missions in Afghanistan and our contacts with Baluchistan Liberation Army. Its that simple.

You need to take a decision if Pakistan is more important or Kashmir. We don't want Pakistani Kashmir. But if you keep interfering, then Ajit Doval has started what is is excellent at. As Ajit Doval said, its all about money. We will start pumping million of dollars every month into Baluchistan and Sindh. There are enough Mir Jafars and Mir Qasims in your country who will do anything for money.

God forbid you lose Baluchistan and Sindh in your lust for Kashmir. Kashmir is good but not that good.

ROHIT PANDEY Feb 05, 2015 01:38pm

@dorri from kashmir A history that is inextricable with the rest of the subcontinent ..that is what we share with Kashmir and Baluchistan as well?:):):)

Geographically and historically contiguous regions sir....probably destined to become part of a giant common market spanning from borders of Iran and Afghanistan all the way to Burma?:):):)

ravirajsher Feb 05, 2015 01:39pm

@taimur where was your by force niazi at time of bangladesh better to be wise and forget all day dreaming.

kamal Feb 05, 2015 01:41pm

NS , you said you will support Kashmir freedom fight openly.

Imagine India openly supporting Balochistan for freedom fight what will happen. India has the capacity to get Balochistan separaed from Pakistan. But India wants good stable Pakistan.

Either correct yourself, else destiny approchning fast...

madhusudan Feb 05, 2015 01:41pm

@Rahman pakistanis are cute

jakoji Feb 05, 2015 01:43pm

Oh, then why was Saksham valley given to China? & why there is no Pak claim on China-occupied-Kashmir (Aksai Chin)?

pakistani Feb 05, 2015 01:44pm

@Manjeet kocchar ..India has no cultural ties with Kashmir region at all.

Aurora Feb 05, 2015 01:47pm

Has NS ever addressed Sindh or Balochistan assembalies ever?. He knows nothing he can do except diverting attention in Pak from the more pressing issues.Medical Facilities/Polio eradication/ CNG crisis/Petrol Diesel crisis/ Electricity outages/Jobs creation /Grounding PIA/ Dysfunctional Railways/ Law & order etc.

Rahul Feb 05, 2015 01:49pm

Ohhoo!! Mr. Nawaz sharif you should support your own citizens first bcz they are struggling from lack of electricity and petrol. you are showing them the moon in the pocket of india and ur citizens wants stone on earth. First give them stone the start to dream for moon.

Nilesh Feb 05, 2015 01:51pm

That means this region is going to be unstable forever. Have you asked Kashmiris whether they want your support or not??

In few days I am sure India will start supporting Baloch freedom struggle.

Techie Feb 05, 2015 01:51pm

History of Kashmir : Reference : wikipedia url : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HistoryofKashmir

"In the first half of the 1st millennium, the Kashmir region became an important centre of Hinduism and later of Buddhism; later still, in the ninth century, Kashmir Shaivism arose. The Islamic conquest of Kashmir (1300AD) ended the Political identity and was a turning point in history. Islamicization in Kashmir took place during 13th to 15th century,"

So Kashmir is an integral part of India if you look from historical perspective.

It needs to be very clear that nothing wrong in being a Muslim.

But that does not mean any one becomes part of Pakistan.

jo Feb 05, 2015 01:52pm

what rightful claim does Pakistan have over Kashmir. Someone please explain.

rehan Feb 05, 2015 01:53pm

@pakistani I am from Assam feel free to visit us. We will show you what freedom is.

arun Feb 05, 2015 01:54pm

pm navaz sharif would be well advised to study the history of last sixty years that he is talkig about. the policy followed by successive regiimes has brought pak to the it is in. if pak still refuses to accept the reality, only god can help

venu Feb 05, 2015 01:56pm

nawaz shariff what u say about BALOCHISTAN ? kashmir is legally merged with INDIA. KASHMIR IS INTEGRAL PART OF INDIA. AND IT WILL BE. first you save balochistan.

prayag Feb 05, 2015 01:57pm

What about bangladesh ? you should get that back too.

Nilesh Feb 05, 2015 01:59pm

PDP and BJP govt is formed in Kashmir... Just wait for 6 years and then I am sure all Kashmiri would be happy prosperous and Kashmir would be developed.... Then there would be no takers for extremism.

Valiya Feb 05, 2015 02:00pm

Pakistan's Kashmir obsession cost them heavily,now kashmiris themselves may not join Pakistan as its present state of affairs (economy/law and order) are worse than India. It is better for Pakistan to keep aside Kashmir and focus for the development of the country. Why people are migrating to west and middle east because of better living standard. Try to make Pakistan a better place than India and invite Kashmiris and raise the issue globally.

kayenn Feb 05, 2015 02:00pm

Keep dreaming... for another 100 years..... and please do not promote terrorism. It will harm you

A Ahmed Feb 05, 2015 02:01pm

@Manoj Jadhav Kashmir is burning because India has 200,000 soldiers occupying it. Kashmir will burn so long as Indias occupation continues.

Nasim Khan Feb 05, 2015 02:01pm

Why and for what pakistan keep talking about Kashmir, what have they done to the Pakistan, these Leaders have no vision and good sense at all. Pakistan Leaders should look-after the Pakistan, they have got, in the name of Islam, rather keep talking about Kashmir, they will not or never do any good to the Kashmiris.

sameer Feb 05, 2015 02:02pm

@Taimur

Taimur, Ha Ha Ha. Pakistan will get it by force. Its a joke. Do you think any force is still remain in Pakistan?

Muhammad Feb 05, 2015 02:04pm

photo opportunity!

Nilesh Feb 05, 2015 02:04pm

@dorri from kashmir Can you please tell me what a south Indian share with Punjabi, a Muslim share wit Hindu, A marwadi share with Rajput, a Jain share with Bengali? Its the same thing we Indian share with Kashmiri and that is nationality....

We all are INDIAN..........

Awais Ali Feb 05, 2015 02:04pm

Not only to support Kashmir freedom but also should support other freedom fighters in Asam, Chatisgath and all sister states of India. You say Balochistan situation is pretty good as compare to Indian states which are dominated by Maoists. You can,t even enter in Maoist dominant areas.

Zaheer Feb 05, 2015 02:07pm

"Today I am here to show solidarity with Kashmiris. Kashmir and Pakistan are one entity; no power in the world can separate the two," . ??? I think it is already separated by India. is not it?

Humanism Feb 05, 2015 02:12pm

The best way to end all the conflicts is to make south Asia a common country with different federations with their own laws. Only defense, currency and foreign policy should be controlled by central government. This would pretty much solve all our problems. All kind of religious fanatics should be punished, be them hindu, Muslims or others. No bond is stronger than the cultural bond of thousands of years. Just because people adopted Islam, Christianity and other religions over the course of history doesn't change who we are. Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Lankans are all river people and not desert people. Let's accept that and work for prosperity of the most impoverished area of the world, South Asia.

shwetabh Feb 05, 2015 02:15pm

Please Mr Nawaz, do you really mean that. There are so many basic issues in both the countries like sanitation,drinking water, health. India is atleast moving in direction to get rid of these..

ZAHID MAQSOOD Feb 05, 2015 02:17pm

MR. PM you are not able to support our own people then how are going to protect Indian Kashimeres?

Rashid Sultan Feb 05, 2015 02:18pm

Same old boring words set to the same old boring and crackly music. When are these grown up but immature politicians stop treating the electorate like imbeciles? I have heard this rhetoric so many times throughout so many years that it makes me retch.

Rabindra Feb 05, 2015 02:19pm

It is quite clearly overlooking the problems within your own country and making corrections to make a better life for citizens, and then stating that you are supporting something which is outside of your control. If only Pakistan can focus on growth, prosperity and stability, it can also surge towards becoming a prospering nation which will attract global investors. Pak needs to move-on from their Kashmir eccentric policy towards growth, stability towards policy. Entire world is hoping for this change.

shafiq Feb 05, 2015 02:21pm

@Indian Why the Kashmiris can not decide if they want to be free of India or Pakistan? What possible objection a decent democracy loving Indian may have if these people exercise their right of self determination? Is not it the way India and Pakistan came to be? The people of the Scotland were showing their wish to have a referendum to decide if they want independence, the UK government gave them the opportunity to vote. Is not that the civilised way? Just count how many Kashmiri people have been killed to keep them in line? It is neither just nor moral for any occupying force to subject a population to subjugation. That is the civilised law of Justice.

mithun anand Feb 05, 2015 02:23pm

Yes..one day the Pakistani part of Kashmir will be free along with the donated Akshai Chin too because we can feel there are possibilities of getting several nations to form through the splitting of Pakistan. The same is not a good thing for Indians too so better shape up your existing area. Although I am skeptical on your abilities. Still Good luck !

Amir Mahmood Feb 05, 2015 02:24pm

And than you say India is doing this and that in Pakistan. Support the freedom of Pakistanis from terrorism.

satyavrata Feb 05, 2015 02:28pm

Pakistan is stuck in the 2 nation theory mindset, which has been proven wrong by history. The obsession with Kashmir has been a curse on Pakistan. Instead of development and democracy, this obsession has given Pakistan dictatorship, wars, terrorism and poverty.

Rehan Feb 05, 2015 02:30pm

Excellent stand Mr Sharif. Now it is Modi's turn

mithun anand Feb 05, 2015 02:44pm

@Tranquil , I sympathies ! Not your fault but of the education system at your place. Check Nepal's (you spelled wrongly) status. The same is not just Indians are saying but same is speculated by eminent Western Journalists and your own elite groups. Check You Tube if you can because that is I think restricted in Pakistan.

Hope somebody can support pakistanis during this time as all politicians of pakistan are busy supporting kashmiris.

Tranquil Feb 05, 2015 02:48pm

Do whatever and say whatever but Freedom for Kashmiris is understood. Nothing less nothing more. Only freedom.

Vyom Feb 05, 2015 02:54pm

India has reached MARS, Pakistan still crying for Kasmir....

@NS look beyond Kasmir..You need to bring your kind attention at upbringing education, woman empowerment and prosperous atmosphere in Pakistan rather then bring world attention towards Kashmir..If you are well flourished Kasmiris would definately like to allign with you you...I am a Kasmiri...I am afraid looking at the current circumstances of Pakistan ...I would never like to allign with Pakistan...

Datta Feb 05, 2015 03:02pm

Lasting peace is a cliche that Pak loves to use at every opportunity. As if the Peshawar killings and other zillions of atrocities iun Pakistan is all due to India refusing to hand over Kahsmir to Pakistan. How foolish or naive does the ruling dispensations in Pak think their population si?? Maybe a significant number of the population for thgem to keep repeating that hackneyed line.

Zaheer Hassan Feb 05, 2015 03:07pm

Nawaz Sharif is a Disgrace and Embarrasment for Pakistan. I only wish that he would disappear from the political scene of Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif has done more harm to Pakistan than good. Nawaz Sharif remained quite at critical moments when the support for Kashmir was most needed. For instance, he failed to utter a single word of support for Kashmir and his in ability to defend Pakistan during his trip to India to attend the coronation ceremony of PM Modi even though India handed him a charge sheet accusing Pakistan of Terrorism and other crimes.

Datta Feb 05, 2015 03:09pm

@Rahman you are confused. Pak raison d'etre was never Kashmir - Pak was formed without Kashmir being part of the deal - read your history my friend - that is the reason Pak lashkars were sent across the border to capture the valley with stealth and failed miserably. You cannot get over it even today..

Sanjay Guha Feb 05, 2015 03:09pm

@dorri from kashmir Sikkim and Assam? You must be dreaming. You saw what happened after you supported the Khalistan movement in Punjab?

Kashmiri34 Feb 05, 2015 03:11pm

"Pakistan would continue its political and diplomatic support" You forget to say support of insurgency and Jihad in Kashmir...

Datta Feb 05, 2015 03:11pm

Considering NS cannot meet the aspirations of the people he is ruling right now what makes him think he can meet those of the kashmiris???

Indian Kashmiri Muslim Feb 05, 2015 03:11pm

Pakistan! Forget Indian Kashmir. There is one issue between India and Pakistan i.e. Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Let PoK join Indian Kashmir, early the better. India will discuss this issue in the next meeting, if happens, possible in 2017.

mithun anand Feb 05, 2015 03:12pm

@pakistani ,LOL ! Assam and Sikkim is having independent movement ? Is it the new version of your text books ? You are really amusing!! Carry on .

Ashwin Feb 05, 2015 03:12pm

"Today I am here to show solidarity with Kashmiris. Kashmir and Pakistan are one entity; no power in the world can separate the two," the premier added....

That power exists Mr. Sharif. It's called "India". Learn to deal with it. You guys have tried your luck many times, and you have been aptly replied back....Just for Pakistan's sake move on.... Pakistani's deserve a better life. You as a leader are unable to protect the common Pakistani and whatever piece of land you already have..... I am aware that India is not out of its own miseries, but then at least we have our priorities set right for once. Get well soon and Good Luck

kalim Feb 05, 2015 03:12pm

We all are supporting Kashmiris for their struggle to get independence. Why there is unrest in occupied kashmir because people of kashmiri are not happy with India. Let it to be solved now now.

Sanjay Guha Feb 05, 2015 03:15pm

@dorri from kashmir Mostly money. Since that state hasn't developed despite the Indian government pouring in hundreds of crores and since we don't have much in common with the people we should send them across to POK and retain the Hindu Pandits

Last Word Feb 05, 2015 03:17pm

Nawaz Sharif has given yet another message to Modi that cross-border terrorism would continue totally disregarding India's strong objections to the same. India, however may ignore this statement but double its resolve not to start dialogue and implementation of Plan 'B' to end border violations from across the border which may prove to be disastrous for Pakistan.

Malvika Feb 05, 2015 03:17pm

@dorri from kashmir what do Pakistanis share with Kashmir- just religion. The ruins of temples all over Kashmir is mute testimony to what Indians share with Kashmir. Kashmiri people include the Kashmiri Pandits and Buddists from Laddakh. They are original inhabitants of Kashmir. They have been brutally harassed for centuries. Pakistan can't take care of its own majority population, forget minorities. Bangladesh chose to seperate because they were discriminated and treated like second class citizens before 1971. Kashmiris themself don't want to be part of Pakistan- they want their own independent nation. It's only Pakistani leaders who can't see the reality and claim Kashmir as part of Pakistan. They keep harping about plebiscite yet they don't honour the very first part of the UN resolution which clearly states Pakistani forces must first vacate part of Kashmir under its occupation. Leave solution of Kashmir to the new generation. They are more educated and well informed about realities. They have capability to decide their future.

riz1 Feb 05, 2015 03:40pm

Most Pakistanis will be surprised that a lot of Indians are extremely terrified about the real possibility of balkanization of your beloved territory into its constituent regions. We do not put it past NATO to give gentle pushes to the region to contain the Asia-Pacific region as a whole and simultaneously disallow both India and China from coming up any further. That is a real nightmare scenario which will directly affect Indian progress, security and stability. Our prayers are with your civilian leaders and your army to somehow hold up your nation for the sake of our shared co-existence, however troubled and troublesome.

Kazim Reza Feb 05, 2015 04:06pm

The people from outside Pakistan always baffled with its Kashmir policy.Some times it appeared the nation had been expecting a friendship with India leaving aside the just self determination cause of occupied Kashmiris. Sometimes quite opposite.During the sworn in function of Modi why Pakistan had represented there by its prime minister. Didn't Pakistan forget its impact on India and USA bilateral relations. If PPP was in power I believe they won't had practiced this type of miscalculation.Foreign policy is not gambling.

Gnanesh Feb 05, 2015 05:10pm

@pakistani

We all know that your education system is very biased and provides distorted facts to grow up with. But should not be to this extent.

The entire area of what is called Pakistan today, and even some parts of Afganisthan earlier were one entity called Bharat. It is quite amusing to hear that Kashmir doesn't have cultural identity with India !!!! LoL

Amer RAO Feb 05, 2015 05:14pm

Quick Question, I raised to hear with this slogan, We are supporting Kashmir. And we saw every year, there are so many rallies for this cause. Still we can get the enough International attention. There should be no public holiday on Kashmir day, that people should work over time and give that day wage to Kashmiri schools or colleges. Make universities. Give Blood, Clean the Cities. Feed the Poor and after that I am confident we can see different Kashmir.

Amir Indian Feb 05, 2015 05:22pm

@Kashmiri34 very true, Indian Kashmir is 100 better position than Pakistan or Pakistan side Kashmir. 1 latest example - Indian Railways entered in the valley, where as Karakorum highway & Gwadar port constructed by China

Tom Feb 05, 2015 05:32pm

@dorri from kashmir,

The land is named after Kashyap rishi. It belongs to Dogras, Kashmiri Pandits and Buddhists. These people have been living there since thousands of years before Sikandar Butshikan came and violently converted population.

In india speak thousands of language , dozens of religions, various types of culture, even we not look alike same from each other.. but still we are one Nation.. In india most number of muslim living in the world.

rehan Feb 05, 2015 05:58pm

kalim Feb 05, 2015 08:23pm

Kasmir34@ It is not solution of kashmir to accept LOC as IB. There are three options to resolve this issue. 1. To annex it with India. 2. To annex it with Pakistan.3. To declare it independent byboth the countries even China as Aksai Chin are is in her possession. Now no one is ready to change its traditional stand on it. UN resolution in 1948 was the best option to resolve it but India was not interested to accept it. This is a dispute if some one agree or not.

kalim Feb 05, 2015 08:31pm

Quaide Azam, Nehru like leadership could not solve this problem, hows Modi and Nawaz Sharif will solve it. British authorities were aware about its consequences so left it unresolved. We should evolve a strategy to resolve this issue according to the aspirations of the people of Kashmir. Just give negative remarks here is not solution of the issue but create hatred against each other.

@KRana;

"We share our land and indian muslim which are more in number then Pakistan"

You are welcome to your point of view but there is no denying that your point of view is no where near universal, without a plebiscite nobody can claim to speak for Kashmiri people. Elections, even if they were free, are no substitute for plebiscite. By the way, your claim that India has more Muslims than Pakistan is not supported by websites of Indian government, UN, IMF, Wikipedia and US State Department.

vabz Feb 05, 2015 11:14pm

Polarizing on the basis of religion. Communal.

Indus Feb 05, 2015 11:15pm

Yesterday it was foreign Secretary today prime minister tomorrow coast . shouting about Kashmir. No one talk of development education and security for schools.

Paul Feb 05, 2015 11:16pm

Dream on, PM Sharif.

It ain't going to happen!!

Sad to see how people are still struck in the past.

Stop talking your military language, and put on your businessman hat and let's do some business, so you can help the development of your country!

Nand Feb 05, 2015 11:21pm

@kalim

Can you please give us a link where it says that India did not follow UN's non-binding resolution?

khan Feb 05, 2015 11:45pm

Same old tactics . Distracting the people from his governments failures.

World renowned booming Pak IT industry.

@Taimur As if you have not tried all of those. What happened? No clue?

Andrew Feb 06, 2015 01:29am

@Taimur What you mean by force? I think you tried thrice. By the way, BD is the reality.

vidhan Feb 06, 2015 01:36am

@Sajjad Abbasi call all kashmiris people in POK and give them you country's citizenship, if they really want to join,

goonga Feb 06, 2015 02:41am

india will never rest for 100000 years till pakistani occupied kashmir is returned back to india.

pak_wellwisher Feb 06, 2015 02:44am

Meanwhile India must support the freedom struggle in Balochistan and FATA and NWFP....we also have relations spanning hundreds pf years and god willing the people from these areas who have been suppressed by Pakistan will breathe the air of freedom....we will support these areas economically and politically.

MK Feb 06, 2015 03:53am

@dorri from kashmir said "Can you Indians tell us what you share with Kashmiri people??? lol"

Well, we are PROUD INDIANS!!!

Malik Sb Feb 06, 2015 04:54am

@Taimur. Very well and rightly said. Thumbs up to you.

Mp Feb 06, 2015 05:39am

@shafiq look who is talking on matter of civility

Named Feb 06, 2015 06:31am

@Varun dont indians kill innocent Pakistan by mortar shelling and kashmir and through supporting insurgent groups especially in Balochistan

Javed USA Feb 06, 2015 06:52am

Keep escaping the people's problems and blame everything on external forces.

CONCERNED HUMAN Feb 06, 2015 07:36am

Pakistan could not keep East Pakistan and West Pakistan together, here are our leaders talking about Kashmiri freedom. Our leaders never miss an opportunity to make themselves look foolish on the world stage. Please ask kashmiris if they really want to separate from India. Muslims of India Kashmir are much happier and prosperous than Muslims of Pakistan. Soon Pakistan will be in 4 pieces, all poorer than Ethiopia, Somalia and other 3rd world countries. Good Luck .

Arshad Feb 06, 2015 08:47am

People...I have been waiting for Kashmir solution since 1947. All the Govts since then have been giving lip service and and nothing else. Pakistan got 2 oppurtunities to annex Kashmir but lost because the leaders got cold feet or cold cash. No one will ever know. Don't waste more lives on this issue now. Forgive me ifor being factual. Had we got Kashmir then it would have been asking for its independence just like Sindh and Baluchistan now because of our kept governance.

Mike Feb 06, 2015 10:05am

It is only part of politics

Knight Feb 06, 2015 10:56am

NS left with nothing but rake up Kashmir again. He failed all front in his governance. And need to change the attention from the real issues. Ans as usual majority of Pakistanis jumped into the wagon and started. Same routine for past so many years.

UD Feb 06, 2015 11:07am

@goonga GOONGA - But what will happen to Pakistan within next 15 or 20 years. If Pakistan does not survive to see that day, then who would see 10000 years?

OM Feb 06, 2015 12:26pm

@kalim Dear friend Please educate yourself on UN resolution. The resolution recommended that in order to ensure the impartiality of the plebiscite Pakistan withdraw all tribesmen and nationals who entered the region for the purpose of fighting and that India leave only the minimum number of troops needed to keep civil order. Pakistan ignored the UN mandate, did not withdraw its troops and claimed the withdrawal of Indian forces was a prerequisite as per this resolution. If Pakistan really wants resolution of Kashmir Issue then why it dont follow the UN reccomendations. For Pakistan military establishment and political leaders the flaring up of Kashmir Issue is neccessity for their existence. If Pakistan shows some genuinity to resolve the issue India will definetly echo Pakistan. But if Pakistan itself dont follow the recommendation then how can it ask India to follow.

Abdul Malik Feb 06, 2015 12:27pm

@Taimur Do you have enough petrol to drive out of Pakistan at least, forget reaching North East India.

door andesh khan Feb 06, 2015 02:35pm

sallam to pakistan

Manish Feb 07, 2015 10:03am

Mr Z A Bhutto promised the people of Pakistan to 'eating grass' and Mr N Sharif making sure it happens. The General taking care that grass is trumpeled with his boots. As an Indian who is conscious of our common origin and ourselves belonging to same family, I feel sorry for our brothers and sisters in Pakistan. May God bless us all.

lkhan Feb 07, 2015 02:55pm

@Shahid Khan : hit the nail right on...

Ashraf from Gurgaon Feb 07, 2015 02:57pm

@dorri from kashmir I'll tell you what we share :-) Land!!! its ours.

Tell you what, lets see who wins this game. We have the money & the time.

Time for us to drop a couple of container loads of rifles & stingers for the Balochis. Yeah, also start running covert missions over your eastern border - it is porus isn't it?

Ashraf from Gurgaon Feb 07, 2015 02:58pm

@madhusudan :-) Yes, they are aren't they? Reminds me of my little nephew throwing tantrums.

Sanjeev Yadav Feb 07, 2015 03:16pm

Imagine life of Pakistani Army generals or politicians without Kashmir.

Sreenath Feb 07, 2015 04:33pm

Ya it is much much easier than developing your own nation .. keep it up dear Prime Minister.

zak the supreme Feb 07, 2015 07:02pm

definitely , as a matter of fact sit ins/ solidarity year when everything is shut down should happen for years and years why just one day . this is our fore most priority.

Ghaznavi Feb 07, 2015 08:39pm

If Pakistan is really serious in supporting Kashmiris then it should hold a UN or Internationally monitored referendum in AJK. Kashmiris of AJK should be given chance to vote for joining India, Pakistan or attaining independence. This seems to be the only way to help Kashmiris. This will also revive the UN resolutions. By legitimizing the Kashmiris of AJK we can get international recognition to their voice and cause. Supporting arms struggle will not work.

Ghaznavi Feb 07, 2015 08:43pm

@Secularly Yours Sindh or Baluchistan cannot be compared with Kashmir as their accession to Pakistan is recognized by the world. If you get chance to visit UN or happen to notice the regional map published by authentic media you will get your answer. Kashmir is shown as disputed region where as there is no such thing marked for Sindh or Baluchistan.

Ghaznavi Feb 07, 2015 08:44pm

@minni why do Indians loose all senses and reasoning whenever K word shows up in discussion ?

P Setra Feb 08, 2015 02:58am

@chakbo It is very hard to learn from mistakes/failures, 'every failure is a pillar of success'. He seems to be catering to a section of people to keep them happy.

P Setra Feb 08, 2015 03:09am

@dorri from Kashmir India has almost as many Muslims as Pakistan, do you know that? On top of that, they are even living in peace with one anther other and the majority.

P Setra Feb 08, 2015 03:13am

@Akhtar They elect their rulers, they have real democracy there.

LS Feb 08, 2015 03:28am

What else can we expect. Come on we are well prepared. Lets stop this diplomacy, not worth it.
