New Delhi, July 23: Lambasting upon the act of Pakistan of declaring terrorist Burhan Wani as a 'Martyr', foreign minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday slammed the neighbour country for its recent attempts to destabilise Jammu Kashmir by provoking anti-India elements.

In a strongly-worded statement, Swaraj said that Pakistan’s goal of annexing the region would never be fulfilled. Pakistan would never succeed in turning Kashmir, where India accuses Pakistan of supporting an armed Islamist insurgency, into a “terror hell".

The statement says that last few days, the leadership of Pakistan, including its Prime Minister has praised as the martyr, a wanted terrorist Commander of the banned terrorist organisation Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, Burhan Wani. He was carrying an award of Rs.10 Lakh on his head because he had perpetrated heinous crimes including the murder of elected representatives of local bodies and security forces/personnel.

Sushma was referring to 20 July which was marked by Pakistan as “Black Day” to highlight alleged human rights violations in Indian-Kashmir. The decision to mark 20 July as “Black Day” was taken at a cabinet meeting chaired by Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif a week earlier.

Even more condemnable than these deplorable attempts from across our border to incite violence and glorify terrorists is the fact that these attempts have been undertaken by Pakistan’s state machinery in active partnership with UN-designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed and other leading terrorists belonging to internationally proscribed organisations.

Sushma exposed Pakistan saying that, the country which has used fighter planes and artillery against millions of its own people has no right whatsoever to point a finger against our brave, professional and disciplined police and other security forces. Their restraint and respect for their fellow citizens is evident in the unusually high number of the injured personnel– more than 1700 – in the violence unleashed with the support from across the border in Jammu and Kashmir.

Behind Pakistan’s unabashed embrace and encouragement to terrorism lies its delusional though dangerous dream that ‘Kashmir will one day become Pakistan’, as Prime Minister Sharif said yesterday. The whole of India would like to tell Prime Minister of Pakistan that this dream will not be realised even at the end of eternity. The whole of Jammu and Kashmir belongs to India. You will never be able to make this heaven on earth into a terror hell.

Indian FM referred Pakistan’s Prime Minister statement that his good wishes are with the people of Kashmir and commented that it’s not Pakistan’s good wishes or moral or diplomatic support but its weapons and terrorism that it has exported to Jammu and Kashmir.

"Pakistan’s dirty money, dangerous terrorists and duplicitous state institutions seek to destabilise the region. The statement of none other than the Prime Minister of Pakistan has betrayed this despicable design. But I would like to repeat that this dream of Pakistan will never be fulfilled," said Sushma as a footnote of the statement.
