That is not a party opinion. We are part of India, we will remain a part of India and there is no power on this Earth that can take us away from India: Farooq Abdullah on National Conference MLA Akbar Lone who shouted 'Pakistan Zindabad' in J&K Assembly yesterday pic.twitter.com/ZmIwFQGclR

Abdullah, a former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, was discussing an incident that took place in the state assembly, where National Conference MLA Mohammed Akbar Lone shouted “Pakistan Zindabad.”
“Mein Kashmiri hoon, Hindustani hoon ya Pakistani jo bhi hoon, mein pehley to Musalmaan hoon (Whether I am Kashmiri, Indian or Pakistani, I am first a Muslim). My sentiments got hurt and I said Pakistan zindabad,” said Lone.
‘PAKISTAN MUST STOP SENDING MILITANTS TO INDIA’
Abdullah on Saturday said, “War cannot solve any problem and could lead to bad consequences. Thus, to avoid war with India, and improve relations with the neighbouring country, Pakistan must stop the daily routine of sending trained militants to India.”
He suggested that representatives of both countries should sit together and sort out the matter.
At least five Indian Army soldiers were martyred, one civilian killed, and four militants gunned down, since the Jaish-e-Mohammad attacked an Army camp in Jammu’s Sunjwan early Saturday morning.
