Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid has predicted that a full-fledged war between India and Pakistan will take place later this year, during October-November.
Addressing a public meeting in Rawalpindi on Wednesday, the minister said that the people who think there is room for negotiation with India are fools. “I can foresee a war between Pakistan and India in late October and November, December,” he said. He added that he has started preparing people for the war.
Sheikh Rashid said that while world leader made a mistake in understanding Modi, he didn’t make that mistake. He said that 25 crore Muslims in India are looking towards Pakistan. He said that people in Pakistan must stand with the voice with Kashmir by forgetting all differences, else history will never forgive them.
Addressing the youths, he said that if Pakistanis don’t stand with Kashmiris, Jinnah’s dream will remain unfulfilled.
Saying that there is no point in talks with India, he said, “Jinnah had assessed the anti-Muslim mindset in India long ago. Those who still think about the possibility of dialogue with India are fools.”
Rashid said that the time for a final struggle for the Kashmir issue has come and the war with India will be the last this time. He said that Pakistan has 130 million youths, who live for Islam and Pakistan and who die for Islam and Pakistan. His comments indicate that although he talked about an Indo-Pak war, he is also looking towards a Jihad by Pakistani youths who are ready to die for Islam.
Rashid said that India wants access to Afghanistan, but Pakistan is an obstacle in that path. India also wants access to Chabahar Port, but Gwadar Port comes in the way. He said that Pakistan is lucky to have a friend like China who is supporting Pakistan against India.
Rashid also attacked the international Muslim community for standing with India in the Kashmir issue. “Why is the rest of the Muslim world silent over the issue?”, the railway minister asked. He said that if others keep silent over Kashmir, Kashmiris will not look towards anyone, they will make their decisions on their own, and we will know that in the next 1-2 months.
He alleged that the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is not serious to resolve the Kashmir issue. “The UN Security Council is not resolving the Kashmir issue, if it is serious then the vote would have been done now,” he said. “Kashmir is on the brink of destruction due to barbarian and fascist Narendra Modi, and Pakistan is the only obstacle in front of him”, the minister added.
He said that PM Imran Khan’s speech at the United Nations on September 27 is of vital significance.
