यहाँ मैं पाकिस्तान से यह सवाल जरूर पूछना चाहूँगा, कि हमारे जिन इलाकों पर उसने अपना अनधिकृत कब्जा जमाया हुआ है, वहाँ के लोगों को उसने कितने अधिकार दे रखे हैं। मानवाधिकार के नाम पर मगरमच्छ के आँसू बहाने वाला पाकिस्तान, इन इलाकों के लोगों की कितनी चिंता करता है, यह सब जानते हैं: RM

“The terrorists used the name of religion and Kashmiriyat to rein terror on the people of Jammu and Kashmir and when they killed people, they didn’t see the religion they targeted all”.

“In Jammu and Kashmir when forces targeted terrorists and their associates, some so called Human rights activists in the country start crying and when these terrorists attack our forces I don’t know where all the activists vanish. Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed the black era in early nineties in the shape of ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits”, Singh added.
