A video claiming to be ‘Saudi Prince’s words on Kashmir issue’ has gone viral on social media and WhatsApp.
The man in the video says that according to him “Kashmir is Hindu Land.”
“My position on the Kashmir issue is very clear. I am not a politician, I only care about history and religion. I know that Islam came to India much later than Hinduism, Hinduism had already existed. Pakistan claimed independence way after all this happened – seventy years ago. So I don’t see that Pakistan is a suitable negotiator on Kashmir – I don’t think they even have the right to speak. I believe it is Hindu land, that is pretty controversial, many will say no and they have the right to their opinions. My position is that Kashmir is Hindu land and I say this in front of everyone. I am not saying this just because I am in India, this has been my opinion for five years. Even when I was an extremist this was my opinion. Nobody can say that I am being paid by Modi or anything like that, ” he says in the video.
