Karachi: In a fresh rant against India, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chief Bilawal Bhutto vowed to wrest Kashmir from India. “When I raise Kashmir, the entire Hindustan screams. They know when a Bhutto speaks, they (Indians) have no answer," the 26-year-old Bhutto scion said during his first public rally in Karachi on Saturday.

“We will take back Kashmir from India," he said amid thundering applause by thousands of supporters at mausoleum of Pakistan’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The next gen politician said that Kashmir would become part of Pakistan but they would not let anyone make India-Pakistan negotiations hostage in the name of Kashmir issue.

Bhutto said he was also seeking peace in Kashmir and his statements over Kashmir should not be misunderstood. Bilawal, who is being portrayed as the future Prime Minister, said the Indian government and media were trying to malign PPP’s image and muzzle its voice since it is “the only Pakistani party whose voice is heard around the world". It is second time Bilawal has talked about Kashmir in public. Last month he had said the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) if voted to power will take back every inch of Kashmir from India. “I will take back Kashmir, all of it, and I will not leave behind a single inch of it because, like the other provinces, it belongs to Pakistan," he had said. Bilawal, who formally launched his political career, promised to revamp the party which is under criticism for ignoring the poor class and peasants considered its backbone.

Bilawal is son of former two-time premier Benazir Bhutto who was assassinated in 2007. Bilawal’s father Asif Ali Zardari was president from 2008 to 2013. Opinions are divided over prospects of Bilawal’s success as he still under the shadow of his father who faced charges of corruption in the past and is known for doling out favours to close friends.
