Nisar’s stance on Kashmir forces Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh to leave SAARC conference

Rajnath Singhnews54sf54sf45ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday could not digest the blunt stance on Kashmir by his Pakistani counterpart Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and left the SAARC conference without attending the last session.

Rajnath Singh felt displeased after Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan candidly advocated the issue of peace in Indian-held Kashmir during addressing a one-day meeting of home ministers from countries belonging to South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc).

Nisar at one point outrightly said that there is a difference between terrorism and struggle for freedom probably referring to the uprising in Kashmir.

“The violence being committed against the innocent people of Indian Kashmir is open terrorism,” Nisar said during his extempore address as Pakistan’s interior minister.

The Indian delegation led by Rajnath Singh left the meeting and did not talk to media at the airport as well.
