JUI-F Chief Fazlur Rehman

LAHORE: Jamiat ul Ulema Islam (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday said that due to Pakistan’s decade long history of making poor policies, our security forces have been stuck on the country’s western borders, DawnNews reported.

Fazlur Rehman, along with the Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif, attended the meeting of the Kashmir committee in Lahore.

Fazl said only stable and strong Pakistan can solve the Kashmir issue

“Kashmir was once an essential part of the country’s foreign policy but now it is being neglected,” the JUI-F chief said.

He said that his party wants the resolution of the issue through dialogue with the acknowledgment that both parties are equal.

India is building dams on the rivers which is hampering Pakistan’s water-supply, Fazl added.

Moreover, he thanked Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for hosting the meeting of the committee.

Sharif, while addressing the meeting, said that thousands of lives have been sacrificed for the Kashmir cause but now the issue has been put on the back-burner.

Despite the United Nation’s resolutions, Kashmiris have been kept deprived of their right to self-determination, Sharif added.

“Pakistan would never withdraw its right on Kashmir,” he added.
