New Delhi, Jun 3: Union Minister V K Singh today hit back at Pakistan saying it can keep harbouring "wrong notions" but that would not make any difference to the actual condition, after its army chief termed partition as an unfinished agenda and Pakistan and Kashmir as "inseperable".

Pakistan army chief General Raheel Sharif has said parititon in 1947 is an "unfinished agenda" and the country and Kashmir are "inseparable".

Wrong notions won't make a difference: V K Singh.
"Kashmir is an unfinished agenda of partition. Pakistan and Kashmir are inseparable. While we wish peace, stability in the region, we want Kashmir's just resolution in the light of UN resolutions and as per aspirations of Kashmiris to bring lasting peace in the region," Raheel has said in Islamabad.

"I think this is the notion they will keep harbouring. They can keep harbouring that wrong notion. It will not make any difference to actual conditions," Singh, a former army chief, told reporters here.

He said Pakistan should apologise for the atrocities done to Kargil martyr Captain Saurabh Kalia, and also for its acts during the 1948, 1971 and 1965 wars.

"Any war you take with Pakistan, there has been a great amount of violation of not only the human rights but of Geneva Convention. We haven't got anything on whatever protestations we have made. We hope all our efforts will suceeed.

"Pakistan should not only apologise over Captain Kalia's case, but should also apologise for the violiations right through...whether it was 1947, 1965 or 1971 or whether it is 1999," the Minister of State for External Affairs Overseas Indian Affairs said.

On Monday, the government bowed to public pressure and reversed its stand on the brutal torture of Kalia by Pakistani troops and announced that it could explore the option of moving the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Pakistan.
