Azad Kashmir is of Pakistan and not part of India - Farooq Abdullah
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and President of the national Conference Dr Farooq Abdullah condemned the 1994 Parliament Resolution adding that the Azad Kashmir (Kashmir under Pakistan's administration) is not part of India, media reported.
He said, "That part (Azad Kashmir) will remain with Pakistan and this Kashmir (Indian Occupied Kashmir) is with India. Practically it is not possible to keep Azad Kashmir with us. We have fought three wars with Pakistan, but could not take back Azad Kashmir from Pakistan."
He added, "Let us be practical. The then PM, Atal Bihari Vajpayee told me that when he visited Pakistan, he gave the suggestion that Pakistan should keep Azad Kashmir, but they did not agree. But now if we start the talks with Pakistan again, they are ready on this formula."
While addressing the rift between government and artists across india sp. Amir Khan, Farooq Abdullah said, "Aamir Khan never said that he wants to leave the country and I was sitting there. He said India is my country and I want to die in my country." He asked, "Why he should leave country? He is true India like other Muslims of this country.
