He told Radio Islam that what’s happening in Kashmir is unfortunate and that India has a self-centered interest in Kashmir.
“You love the land, but you hate the people living in it, people have been divided with parents at one side of the line of control and children on the other side, if they want to meet the family, they will be killed.”
