Pakistani cleric and politician Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that it was “wrong” on part of Pakistanis to take part in militant struggle in Kashmir, a media report said.
“Speaking in an interview with journalist Saleem Safi on Geo TV, the Minhaj-ul-Quran leader said one country has no right to launch an armed struggle in another country,” Arab News reported.
Qadri also said that Islam doesn’t approve of any such campaign.
“Asked if the Pakistanis who are taking part in Kashmir’s “freedom struggle” are wrong, Qadri said it is wrong to take part in attacks in a foreign territory,” it added.
He cited the example of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) who, he said, never gave permission to his companions to exact revenge from Islam’s enemies in that manner.
“There should be efforts at the diplomatic level to highlight Kashmiris’ rights and aspirations,” he said.
