Today, Amit Shah said that there can’t be peace between India and Pakistan if the Pakistan government and army will continue to do what they were doing until now. Amit Shah said this while he was being interviewed by the reporters of one of the news channels in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
Pakistan’s military establishment of aiding and abetting cross-border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir has been accused since a long time by India now.
On the other hand, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday launched a corridor project in the country. As per this project, the corridor will allow Sikhs in India to access gurdwara in Kartarpur visa-free. Gurdwara in Kartarpur is known as the final resting place of Guru Nanak, who was the founder of Sikhism.
While Khan launched the corridor project Yesterday, he in his speech mentioned that Pakistan wanted a “civilised relationship” with India. Khan also said that the major problem between both the nations is Kashmir, which is prohibiting from uniting Pakistan and India.
Khan further added that our army, our political leaders, and all other institutions are on one page. We wish to have a civilised relationship and want to move forward, he said.
After Prime Minister of Pakistan made a reference to Jammu and Kashmir amidst his speech, India’s Ministry of External Affairs later said that Khan politicised the “pious occasion” with such a reference.
In the earlier part of the day, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in her speech said that the Kartarpur corridor and India-Pakistan bilateral dialogue are two different things” which should not be connected. She also said that terror and talks can’t go together.
“We always say: Terror and talks can’t go together. The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, the dialogue can start. But the dialogue is not connected to only the Kartarpur corridor,” she said.
