Peshawar, Oct 8 : Taking a strong exception to Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari's recent comment describing Kashmiri militants as 'terrorists', the PML-Q, a key Opposition party in Pakistan, has said that "a mentally sick person" could not be allowed to make all decisions on his own, especially at a time when the country was facing both internal as well as external threats.
The party said that President Zardari had "damaged" the Kashmir cause by calling Kashmiri freedom fighters as 'terrorists' in an interview with a foreign newspaper.
PML-Q's two top leaders - Muhammad Intikhab Khan and Muhammad Moazzam Butt condemned President Zardari's statement on Kashmiri freedom fighters, reported the Daily Times.
"By describing them (Kashmiri freedom fighters) as terrorists President Zardari has accepted India's 60-year-old stance on Kashmir and India has welcomed Zardari's statement on Kashmir. He has damaged the Kashmir cause," said Butt while addressing press persons at the Peshawar Press Club.
Butt said that a person who could sell the Kashmir cause for 10 billion dollars could also sell Pakistan in the international market. "He is a mentally sick person dreaming of becoming the richest person in the world," said the PML-Q leader.
Butt further said that the Army should review its policy in view of internal and external threats the country was confronted with. "The army should play its role in saving the country," he said.
