Jammu, July 15 (ANI): Taking strong exception to Chairman of the Pakistan People's Party Bilawal Bhutto calling up separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to express his solidarity with the people of Kashmir amid the ongoing unrest, the National Panthers Party (NPP) on Friday said it makes it clear that Pakistan is behind the current state of affairs in Jammu and Kashmir. NPP chairman Harsh Dev Singh said the international community must take note of interference of Pakistan in the internal affairs of India. "It becomes evidently clear that Pakistan is behind all that is happening in Jammu and Kashmir. It has been fermenting trouble since beginning. Now that Bilawal Bhutto has called up Mirwaiz amply goes to show that Pakistan is behind violence in Kashmir," he told ANI. Sources say that Bhutto told Mirwaiz that after Friday prayers, solidarity marches would be taken out across Pakistan to express solidarity with Kashmiris. "Spoke to @MirwaizKashmir & expressed condolences, condemnation & solidarity with the people of #Kashmir," Bhutto tweeted. Mirwaiz, meanwhile, appreciated Bhutto's concern for Kashmir. "Appreciate the support & concern of the people of Pakistan and their leadership @BBhuttoZardari," Mirwaiz tweeted in response. (ANI)
