Mr. Zardari said that in the form of Modi government, India’s war frenzy has now crossed all limits, the first target of which is Indian minorities, especially Muslims adding that his Party was founded on the Kashmir issue, whose founder Quaid-e-Awam Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, had stated that I cannot make a mistake even in my sleep on the issue and we are ready to fight for a thousand years for Kashmir.
