Lahore, Mar.27 (ANI): Noted peace activist, Dr. Mubashar Hassan, has said that the Bush administration's move to declare Pakistan major non-NATO ally could harm Indo-Pakistan peace steps in the long run.
"The United States has never wanted peace in South Asia so that it could use it as a market for arms etc. It always protected and supported dictatorship in Pakistan against democracy for the assurance of success of its plan," Hassan, a founding member of the Pak-India People's Forum for Peace and Democracy (PIPFPD), was quoted by the Daily Times, as saying.
Hassan was delivering a lecture on 'Indo-Pak relations - Past and Future' arranged by the Rotary Club Garrison and the Rotary Club Midtown.
"What worries me is that both sides have done nothing about Kashmir," he said.
"They are not allowed to visit places in India and Pakistan on their own. The governments on both sides have put restrictions on them," he added.
He said America should have consulted India before making the announcement about Pakistan.
"The US wants to please the Army which protects its interests in Pakistan because the US has always supported dictatorships in Pakistan,"he claimed. (ANI)
