Islamabad, 13 August 2019: Pakistan will have to send a clear message to 
Kashmiri people that every Pakistani is with them at this difficult time 
and Pakistan will have to send a message that we are ready to go to war 
if needed for the Kashmir cause.

Addressing a press conference with Senator Farhatullah Babar and Senator 
Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar at Zardari House Islamabad, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari 
said that the PTI government wants to divide the people of Pakistan by 
antagonizing the opposition. The government has started arresting the 
women of opposition.

  Faryal Talpur was sent to Adiala Jail at midnight from the hospital 
bed where she was being treated and the doctors had advised to treat her 
in the Cardiology Hospital. The law is that no one can be sent to prison 
from hospital after 5pm but Faryal Talpur was forced to go to the prison 
at midnight. The government knew that I was in Kashmir to offer Eid 
prayers with Kashmiri brethren and my father President Zardari was in 
jail, Chairman Bilawal said. The government was also aware that the next 
morning was Eid and there would be no newspapers the next day. All this 
proves that the tyrannical PTI government does not want one voice for 
Kashmiri brethren.

Chairman PPP said that whenever he meets Kashmiri activists and 
journalists, they ask whether the Pakistani Prime Minister is also 
involved in conspiracy against Kashmiris. The joint session was summoned 
on the demand of the PPP and when we went to show solidarity with 
Kashmiri people, the government also sent its representative. It is 
unfortunate that Prime Minister Imran Khan did not go to Muzaffarabad 
despite the fact that AJK government had invited him to address the AJK 
Assembly.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the government has totally ruined the 
economy and price hike has made the lives of the people hell. However, 
on the Kashmir cause the people of Pakistan have the right to ask the 
government about its efforts for the cause and why is everything going 
in accordance with what Imran Khan said in an interview. Pakistan should 
expose Modi and his tyranny instead of targeting the opposition. The 
foreign journalists ask us about the difference between PTI and Modi 
governments because both are on the same page with regard to suppressing 
people. He said that Kashmiris still remember Shaheed Zulfikar Ali 
Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto who had fought for the 
Kashmiri cause and even today, PPP will continue to do so.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that he will visit Skardu and will talk 
about human rights violation in Pakistan as well as the attack on the 
media by PTI government. He said that PPP will not let incapable Prime 
Minister Imran Khan to harm Kashmir cause. He demanded of the government 
to take seriously the happenings in Kashmir and play its role for 
national harmony. Pakistanis will never forgive the PTI leadership and 
government if they do not support the Kashmiris who have the right to 
decide their own future. He said that the statement of foreign minister 
yesterday was unfortunate and Pakistanis and Kashmiris both are 
disappointed with his statement.

Answering a question, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that his family will 
file a petition against sending Faryal Talpur to prison. He said that 
President Zardari was not even allowed to offer Eid prayers despite 
requesting the officials.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that this government is taking action 
against all institutions which are raising their voice for Kashmiris 
like Amnesty International, New York Times and the BBC. On the floods in 
Karachi, he said that a propaganda campaign has been waged against Sindh 
government but it is also a fact that the rain this year was 
record-breaking and Karachi is below sea level unlike the sloped cities 
of Islamabad and Lahore. He appreciated efforts of Sindh government as 
well as the bureaucrats who sacrificed their Eid to clear the city of 
rain water.
