Lahore: Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief and Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed has criticised the Nawaz Sharif government for its 'cool' response to India over alleged atrocities in Kashmir, saying people in the Valley need Pakistan's 'full practical support'. 'The Pakistani government's response to India over atrocities in Kashmir is cool and by doing so it is not pleading the case of oppressed Kashmiris,' Saeed at the JuD headquarters. He said there is no value of one or two statements in favour of Kashmiris by the Prime Minister and other members of his government rather they need 'full practical support'. Saeed, according to a Dawn report, had earlier urged ruling and opposition parties to resolve all their issues through talks and avoid becoming tools of international forces who want both to ignite a crisis in Pakistan. 'Just a few days after the Quetta attack, which has left our scores of policemen dead, the country has plunged into a political crisis,' he was quoted as saying. Saeed alleged that India is behind this political crisis in Pakistan to prevent Islamabad from raising the Kashmir issue. He lamented that as far as Pakistan is concerned the Kashmir, issue has disappeared from the national scene. The Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief made these comments while addressing a press conference at the Markaz-i-Taqwa, the Karachi headquarters of the JuD.
