LAHORE: Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed Saturday warned the Pakistan government against striking a “secret deal” with India on the Kashmir issue. “We cannot leave the Kashmiri people at the mercy of India. Kashmiris have not sacrificed lives to divide Kashmir,” he was quoted as saying during a meeting with supporters here .

“We will not allow the government to have a secret deal with India on the Kashmir issue. Kashmir belongs to Kashmiris and any decision without taking them on board will not be acceptable to them or to the people of Pakistan.”

The founder of the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba further claimed India can “no longer rule Kashmir by force”.

He asked the Pakistan government to include Kashmiri leaders in talks for resolving the Kashmir dispute.
