This is apropos a Business Recorder editorial "Kashmir cause and domestic politics" carried by the newspaper yesterday. I fully endorse newspaper's argument that "PM Khan has used every available opportunity to plead the Kashmir case internationally, risking at one juncture even the longstanding special relationship with a brotherly Muslim country for the Organisation of Islamic Conference's (OIC's) failure to highlight the issue. It is no mean achievement of Pakistan's diplomatic efforts that during the last one year the UN Security Council held three informal meetings to discuss the Kashmir issue, negating the Indian claims that Kashmir is its internal matter. Pakistan surely can and should do more to draw international attention to the human rights crisis in IIOJK."

There's no doubt about the fact that the PM has been highlighting the Kashmir issue in the most effective way possible. It is through him that Narendra Modi has been exposed as the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. The opposition, therefore, must not criticise the PM unfairly or unkindly. All political parties and groups must understand that the Kashmir cause is a highly valuable principle that is strongly supported by the entire Pakistani nation.
