Islamabad: President of Azad Kashmir Sardar Mohammad Anwar Khan Tuesday said the fencing of the Line of Control by India is will be equal to the raising of a new Burn Wall that would further alienate Pakistan and India. Talking to a visiting nine-member Commonwealth delegation here at the Kashmir House, the AJK president said the fencing could not be allowed as it was against the international laws. He added that in the today's civilized world, fences are not raised for human being but for the animals. 'Those who resolve to 'go' cannot be barred by things like fence.' The state president observed that in fact India dose not want peace with Pakistan and was resorting to such tactics on the basis of which it could accuse Pakistan of violating the ceasefire. The AJK president termed the atrocities in held Kashmir as brazen terrorism. The resistance by the freedom fighter is a struggle for liberation and not terrorism. To a question the president said that being a nuclear power India must demonstrate responsibility. 'But unfortunately Indian modus operandi was in the opposite direction.'
