Nawaz Sharif talking to a reporter:
Sharif: We will send 22 Special Envoys for Kashmir to different countries
Reporter: There are 196 countries. And you have 342 seats in the National assembly and 104 Senators. Why not send all the Senators and the remaining from the National Assembly to the 196 countries? Will that not show you are serious about the issue?
Sharif: Number 22 in numerology is the number of Spiritual Master Builder and when the number senses its full capacity it can achieve what is hardly imaginable… Besides someone has to remain in Pakistan lest there is coup!!
Reporter: Considering your choice of the Spiritual Master Number you think Kashmir as you contemplate is not imaginable?
Sharif: (Angrily) No…I mean not imaginable to India!
Reporter: But its Pakistan which is sending the envoys!
Sharif: Yes. But Pakistan wants India to get the message.
Reporter: Why not send the message directly to India?
Sharif: India has got the message from my statement…
Reporter: If India has already got the message why send the envoys?
Sharif: (In a huff) You have another question?
Reporter: You said the measure is to send “prayers of Kashmiri people across Line of Control.” There is Kashmir on both sides of Line of Control. Whose prayers are you sending.
Sharif: Those on the Indian side ofcourse.
Reporter: What about the prayers of those on the Pakistani side?
Sharif: China is agnostic.
Sharif: Its not Pakistan alone but Pakistan and China on the other side. Even Pakistanis cant pray there.
Reporter: Oh! And who conveyed the prayers to you to be sent through the envoys?
Sharif: (Angrily) Convey prayers!!! Though Amanullah Khan of JKLF passed away recently Hafiz Saeed and Zaki ur-Rehman Lakhvi are in Pakistan. All those who sincerely pray for Kashmir are Pakistan only. Their prayers will be conveyed. Even indians prefer to be in Pakistan. Look at Dawood. His prayers will also be sent.
Reporter: What about your Embassies and Ambassadors? Why Special Envoys
Sharif: You see Pakistan Independence day was celebrated as Freedom for Kashmir. That was the first step. Pakistanis becoming Kashmir Envoys is the second. In due course the Embassies of Pakistan will become Kashmir Embassies. We will also rename Pakistan and change the flag too.
Reporter: But there is more to Pakistan than Kashmir. There are eight administrative units in Pakistan.
Sharif: Yes. But you see there is unrest in Balochistan. We are facing problem in Gilgit. There is also problem in Azad Kashmir. The Pashtuns are not integrated in FATA. And there is militancy in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. These together make up majority of the territory of Pakistan. We need a place to rest outside Pakistan as we are always fighting within the Pakistani territory. Kashmir fits the bill.
Reporter: And what about prayers of Pakistanis?
Sharif: Hahaha! We run the government. And we prefer to PREY!
