MUZAFFARABAD, Feb 5 (APP): President Dr Arif Alvi on Friday said Pakistan would never compromise on Kashmir and warned India ‘not to play with fire’ by changing the demography of the Muslim populated Valley.
“India is playing with fire by changing demographics of Jammu and Kashmir, with high risks of a situation leading to conflict and genocide,” the President told media during his visit to Muzaffarabad, where he addressed the special session of AJK Legislative Assembly.
The President said India illegally inhabited 3.3 million people in Kashmir to change the demography of highly populated Muslim area.
Even though this tactic, India will remain to fail to eliminate the passion and struggle of Kashmiris for their identity,” he said.
