Erdogan attempts to rile up Muslims in Pakistan over Kashmir

New Delhi/Islamabad, Feb 14 (IANS): Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has once again come to stand by Pakistan, which has been facing diplomatic isolation over Kashmir.

Addressing a joint session of Parliament in Islamabad, for the fourth time, Erdogan reiterated his country's support for Pakistan and its stand on the Kashmir issue. Since 1947, Pakistan attempted to invade Jammu & Kashmir through four conventional wars. For the last three decades, the ISI has been sponsoring cross-border terrorism in Kashmir.

Erdogan aspires to be the leader of the Muslim world, overthrowing Saudi Arabia, with the support and help of Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan and Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

Narrating the history of Muslim camraderie in the region, Erdogan recalled that in 1915, Muslims in the Indian subcontinent under the British, had come to support Turkish soldiers by raising funds for them in the Gallipoli campaign, the Battle of Aanakkale against the Allied forces of the first world war.

"We have never forgotten and will not forget the help, which the Pakistani people delivered, during our War of Independence by piling up their own bread. Events that happened a hundred years ago in Aanakkale in Turkey are being repeated in Indian occupied Kashmir," he said.

"Today, the issue of Kashmir is as close to us as it is to you," he said adding, "like in the past, we will continue to support Pakistan in the future."

Continuing with his provocative speech aimed at riling up Muslims, Erodgan said, "No distance can build a wall between the hearts of believers. If there is torture against any believers in the world, it our duty to help them."

    Not surprising since both are invaders and occupiers. While Pak invaded and forcibly occupied part of Kashmir (POK), Turkey invaded Cyprus in 1974 and still occupying part of the country.

    BJP's Hindutva policies hurts India's ability to persuade Muslim countries to stay neutral in the Kashmir dispute between Indian and Pakistan. Muslim countries which were formerly neutral in the Kashmir dispute are backing Pakistan after BJP began ruling India.

    2018 trade:

    Turkey's exports to India: $1.2 billion.
    India's exports to Turkey: $7.5 billion.

    So, the Indian Government will be VERY careful with any words!

    Imagine if Turkey does to India what India has done to Malaysia.

    Ottoman: Tried to Conquer Europe and ruled Spain for many years...till they got kicked out.
    The lesson is not learned still.
    Thanks to Britain.
    Jammu and Kashmir. and Arunachal Pradesh was and is an integral part of India.
    why should third parties scratch their heads in vain?
    They should talk about UEIGHARS in China.
    Turkey: Malaysia should work for their own people and be happy...

    Turkey is the perpetrator of Armenian, Kurdish and Cypriot genocide throughout its history. India should help all these freedom loving Armenian, Kurdish and Cypriots against the Turkish brutality .
