JuD chief Hafiz Saeed has alleged that the current political crisis in Pakistan was part of an "Indian conspiracy" to divert international attention from its 'oppression' in Kashmir.

The political crisis in Pakistan - Pakistan Tehreek-i- Insaaf (PTI)'s call for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's resignation over Panama leaks, protesters' clash with police and the government's aggressive response to the protests - were all affecting the Kashmir cause, the LeT founder said.

"If you go through analytically, in all that panic and crisis-like situation, the Kashmir issue has disappeared from the national scene," he was quoted as saying by the Dawn while addressing a press conference at the Markaz-i-Taqwa, the Karachi headquarters of the party yesterday.

He said it seems Pakistan had forgotten the plight of Kashmiris and called upon ruling and opposition parties to resolve their issues through talks to "avoid becoming tools of international forces which wanted them to ignite a crisis in Pakistan".

The current political crisis in Pakistan was part of an "Indian conspiracy" to divert global attention from Kashmir, he said, adding that Indian spy agency RAW was behind it so that Islamabad could not raise the Kashmir issue.
