Sharif-Modi friendship hurting Kashmir cause: Bilawal
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari, listens after opening a flood donation point at the Pakistan High Commission in London August 7, 2010. President Zardari's planned address of a PPP party rally in Birmingham on Saturday had raised expectations that his son would make his first major political speech there after graduating in June from Oxford University. But in an apparent attempt to appease anger at home over the floods which have killed at least 1,600 people, Bilawal Bhutto on Thursday cancelled plans to attend and said he would instead stay in London to collect donations for flood victims.

Islamabad: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the “Sharif-Modi friendship” was causing irreparable damage to the Kashmir cause.

Bhutto on Sunday condemned the killing by security forces of civilian demonstrators who took to the streets in thousands after the death of a top Hizbul Mujahideen leader, Burhan Wani, Dawn online reported.

“Such aggression by Indian authorities has exposed the sham democracy prevailing in India,” he said.

Bhutto accused Nawaz Sharif of damaging Pakistan’s foreign policy by giving his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi a “certificate of friendship”.

Bhutto, who returns from London this week, is to address rallies in Pakistani Kashmir, an aide said.
