According to the article, “He stressed: ‘Our foreign policy must be based on the Holy Qur’an’.” Where did he get that idea? He must be cherry-picking those verses, eh?
“Legislator urges jihad to counter American threat,” from Internews:
ISLAMABAD: Ruling coalition legislator and parliamentary Secretary for Defence Major (retd) Syed Tanveer Hussain has advised the Pakistan government to recognise the Taliban and open all corridors for militants to wage jihad for the “liberation” of Kashmir.
“India will not give freedom to the Kashmiris through dialogue so we have to wage a jihad and our mujahideen will secure the freedom of Kashmir within six months,” he said, while speaking in the National Assembly during a debate on Pakistan’s foreign policy, local media reported with shock yesterday.
The stunning speech of the parliamentary secretary got a positive response from
the Islamist alliance Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, particularly when he praised the Taliban and asked the government to give a shut-up call to the US over its threats to Pakistan. He also asked the government to counter the recent US “˜Pressler-type bill” by allowing
“The aid that forces us to mistreat our own people should be spewed out,” he
Don’t want the money? Spew away.
In his hard-hitting and emotional speech, Hussain said that Pakistan should also recognise the Taliban, who were the enemies of the US. “Taliban did not have any enmity with Pakistan but only with the US,” he added.
He alleged that the American CIA was killing the Chinese in Pakistan to harm
the cordial relations between the two countries. He also asked the government to open all the corridors for the jihadis to enter Indian-administered Kashmir so that they could wage jihad against India.
“We cannot get Kashmir on negotiations table but through jihad,” he said, while raising the slogans of “˜Al-Jihad, Al-Jihad”.
He said the government should renounce its “˜love affair” with America and reject all kinds of aid. “We should improve our relations with Iran, China and Russia as the US will not give us anything except threats,” he added.
The parliamentary secretary said Muslims were being killed throughout the world
under a conspiracy but “we have turned a blind eye to the same”. He stressed: “Our foreign policy must be based on the Holy Qur’an.”
