Pakistan, stay away from our affairs: Hina Bhat, BJP leader

New Delhi, July 12: The encounter of Burhan Wani created ripples not only in India, but also in the neighbouring country of Pakistan. With Pakistan brewing controversy over ongoing protest-violence in Kashmir Valley, BJP leader Hina Bhat said that Pakistan should not interfere into India's matters.

To this, Bhat said, "Pakistan will definitely interfere into the Kashmir issue, because they are the ones who have been bothering India to have peace in Kashmir and they are the ones who create such situations in Kashmir."

She also said, "This is the peak time in Kashmir, where we have tourism, where we have the (Amarnath) Yatra and this thing (violence). They (Pakistan) have to keep their agenda moving by creating such acts. I don't think Pakistan has any right to talk about India and Kashmir."

"I am thankful to Pakistan about their concern for India, but I would be very happy if they do it without interference."

Branding the killings as "deplorable and a blatant violation" of the Right to Life, Right to Freedom of Expression and Opinion, Right to Peaceful Protest, Right to Peaceful Assembly and other fundamental rights", Chaudhary said that excessive force on innovent civilians is unacceptable.

He further said that oppressive measures cannot deter the valiant people of Jammu and Kashmir who are exercising their right to self determination, as per the UN Security Council resolutions.

To this, the Ministry of External Affairs responded via a statement, saying, "They reflect Pakistan's continued attachment to terrorism and its usage as an instrument of state policy. Pakistan is advised to refrain from interfering in internal affairs of its neighbours."

Earlier PM Nawaz Sharif expressed deep shock over the killing of Burhan Wani and other civilians and said that 'excessive and unlawful' use of force was unacceptable.
