Islamabad: AJK President Major Gen (Retd), Sardar Muhammad Anwar Khan has taken strong exception to the remarks expressed by the UK Prime Minister Tony Blair that terrorism is hitting Kashmir. Recording his reaction here Saturday he said that Tony Blair remarks were irrelevant and unwarranted. Kashmiris are much shocked over these remarks. He held that Kashmiris are not opposed to UK.. They are fighting against the occupational forces of India. Such remarks by UK premier will turn the Kashmiris against Britain, as they are not against UK in fact, he added. He underlined that India and Indian troops are terrorists rather than Kashmiris who are in fact engaged in struggle against the army of terror to seek their right to self determination, he added. He termed Blair remarks, misleading, misleading and provocative as the US president George W Bush also did not take any notice of them.
