Farooq Abdullah had raked up controversy last week when he said that PoK belongs to Pakistan and it won't change even if the two countries fight wars against each other.

Farooq Abdullah, the National Conference president who recently stirred the Kashmir pot with his “PoK belongs to Pak” comment, said on Wednesday that Pakistanis “are not weak and are not wearing bangles. They too have atom bomb. Before we think about war, we should think how we will live as humans.”

Abdullah was speaking to supporters at a rally in Uri when he said: “How long shall we keep saying that (PoK) is our part? It (PoK) is not their father’s share. That (PoK) is Pakistan and this (J&K) is India.” He said 70 years had “passed but they (India) could not get it (PoK)”.

“Today, they (India) claim it is our part. So take it, we are also saying please take it (PoK from Pakistan). We will also see. They (Pakistan) are not weak and are not wearing bangles. They too have atom bomb. Before we think about war, we should think how we will live as humans.”

The former chief minister said that when bombs are fired from that side (PoK), people on this side get killed and army personnel get killed and when a bomb is fired from this (Indian) side, “our own people get killed there”.

“How long is this going to continue and how long will innocent lives be lost,’’ Farooq said.

This is the second time in the past one week when the leader said that Kashmir belonged to India and PoK to Pakistan and both the countries should give autonomy to both Kashmirs. Farooq Abdullah also mentioned about a case that has been filed against him for his remarks on PoK.

“A case has been filed against me. That too by a Muslim. May God protect him. They don’t know about the condition of Kashmir.’’

Abdullah said the time had come to start reversing the extension of all central laws to Jammu and Kashmir after 1953 in continuation of the spirit of the state’s unique political arrangement with the rest of the country.

        I think what he said is true because he know the situation better than anyone. I don't thing neither people live in PoK want to be a part of India nor J K people want to be a part of Pakistan. We fought 70 years.i didn't see any benefits from it. It only results death.. Death of innocent people. So this two countries should talk and resolve their differences. According to me status quo is the best solution because there is no other solution that can assure a bloodless win-win situation for both sides. Please do not see me as a anti national. I love my country more than anything. I want to see peace in my country. For that this loggerhead should be resolved.

          Probably u r too naïve. Don't you think that the government of India doesn't know that resolution by talks is the best solution and doesn't Farook know that even thought today POK is under Pak, he should not talk in the way he has done. We should always exercise our superiority and one thing is for sure , even if we give away Kashmir today to Pak. bcoz as you said , we want peace, can u guarantee Pak. will be keeping quite. It will start all the raucous again for many years until it takes Gujarat and Punjab and other portions of India. The problem is that Pakistan has a deep acerbity in its blood towards India. It's rulers have formed that country since beginning based on this fundamental idea of hatred for India and occupy India since beginning. So, the two nations can never be truly at peace. So, it means no one in India should undercut the country by talking like Farook, even if it's the truth - JaiHind.

            Why this converted Indian is advocating for Pakistan. I don't understand. Does he want to leave India very soon. If does not, we should kick out this Pakistan loving converted dogs to Pakistan or Saudi Arabia. No more in the name of freedom of speech. Spit on his face. Slap with chappals.
