Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Naeem Khalid Lodhi (Defense Analyst):
“India is baselessly alleging Pakistan to be involved in terrorism in Occupied Kashmir. It is a fact that Kashmir is getting out of Indian control and it is also being endorsed by international analysts as well. International community has started raising voices against Indian atrocities in Held Kashmir. Pakistan needs to highlight the reality on all international forums that one nuclear power should be careful in deceptively alleging another nuclear power. India is frustrated and also hesitant to allow the UN fact finding mission to visit the LoC on its part."
Dr. Amna Mehmood (IR Expert):
“It is the Indian policy to always allege Pakistan for any terror incident and hold it responsible without any investigation. The Indian government is using the most brutal techniques to suppress the freedom of movement. Thousands of people have been wounded; hundreds have been killed while hundreds others have been deprived of their eyesight. It is observed that Kashmiris are openly asking for merger with Pakistan despite the presence of hundreds of thousands of Indian troops in the region. Kashmiris are freedom fighters, who are carrying out their movement from an occupied territory and not separatists.”
Brigadier, retired, Aftab Afzal (Defense Analyst):
"Indian media is known for promoting anti-Pakistan propaganda and is being supported by Indian state institutions. It is an Indian tactic to keep Pakistan under pressure as a part of anti-Pakistan policy. The world knows that Pakistan is a responsible state that is sincerely making efforts to wipe out the menace of terrorism. Most of the times the terror incidents in Kashmir and India are planted by the India government, just to make the world realize that Pakistan is involved in promoting terrorism.”
Dr. Farooq Hasnat (IR Expert):
"For the first time, the Kashmiri school girls have come on road and protesting against the illegal occupation of India on Kashmir and demanding the right to self-determination. The people of Indian-administered Kashmir have suffered through uproars of violence and toned down versions of the war, but even after almost 60 years, it seems that the situation continues to worsen, hitting new rock bottoms with every major turn of events. The Kashmir movement for plebiscite is purely indigenous. India has not clamped down its violent approach on Kashmir issue due to Pakistan’s mediocre efforts to exert diplomatic pressure.”
Najma Hameed (Leader, PML-N):
“Free, fair and transparent senate elections are inevitable for democratic rule and progress and stability of the country besides problems of masses could be addressed only through a strong parliament. Some political parties have started dirty politics to promote ‘shameful horse-trading’ for the upcoming senate elections. ECP needs to take serious actions against the parties involved in such acts. I would like to appreciate the vision of PML-N president for issuing senate tickets to workers ".
Abdullah Gul (Defense Analyst):
“Pakistan has rendered huge sacrifices both in terms of financial and infrastructure losses. Pakistan is keenly monitoring the activities against the banned organizations, including Jaish-e-Muhammad and others according to its national laws. India has been involved in state terrorism for the last many decades in Indian-administered Kashmir and Pakistan is continuing its moral and diplomatic support to Kashmiri people. India is also involved in negative efforts to destabilize Pakistan through terrorist activities. Kulbhushan Yadav, an Indian spy agent, himself admitted that India wants to destabilize Pakistan thorough its spy agency RAW. Moreover, India will never support the strong Pakistan-Afghanistan bilateral relations and will always try to create confusions and misunderstanding between these two countries. Pakistan has always adopted serious concerns to resolve all outstanding issues with India through dialogue, but Indian government never responded in a positive manner.”
